*Since 2000, TCU's 23-1 record (.958) as an Associated Press Top 5 team is the best mark nationally. The Horned Frogs have a 20-game winning streak as an AP Top 5 squad.
*TCU has opened 6-0 for the third time in the last seven years and fourth time overall in 15 seasons under Patterson.

SERIES NOTES
*TCU and Iowa State will be meeting for just the seventh time in their history.
*The Horned Frogs hold a 5-1 series lead. Since beginning Big 12 play in 2012, TCU is 2-1 versus Iowa State.
*TCU is 2-0 versus Iowa State in Ames, 2-1 in Fort Worth and 1-0 at neutral sites (2005 Houston Bowl).
*TCU won 55-3 in last year's regular-season finale to capture its first Big 12 championship.
*The Horned Frogs' only previous Big 12 visit to Ames was a 21-17 victory in 2013.
*Iowa State took a 37-23 victory in 2012 in the Horned Frogs' first-ever Big 12 home game. It also snapped a 12-game TCU winning streak that was the longest in the nation at the time.

REMEMBER WHEN?
*TCU head coach Gary Patterson's first game on the Horned Frogs' sideline was a 31-21 victory at Iowa State in 1998. Patterson was TCU's defensive coordinator at the time.
*Trevone Boykin's first collegiate start at quarterback came in Iowa State's 2012 visit to Amon G. Carter Stadium. Boykin, a redshirt freshman at the time, spent the majority of the game week taking snaps at tailback in practice before becoming TCU's starting quarterback for the game.
*Boykin had a career-high three rushing touchdowns, including the game-winning 1-yard score with 38 seconds to play, on just five carries in a 21-17 win at Iowa State in 2013.
*Boykin had a career-high 559 yards of total offense (460 passing, 55 receiving, 44 rushing), the second-best single-game total in TCU history, in last year's 55-3 win over Iowa State. He passed for four touchdowns while adding a receiving score.
