FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Breece Hall ran for 154 yards and three touchdowns, JaQuan Bailey had 3 1/2 sacks to become Iowa State's career leader and the Cyclones opened Big 12 play with a 37-34 win at TCU on Saturday.
Bailey's strip sack and recovered fumble just before halftime set up Brock Purdy's 17-yard touchdown pass to Darren Wilson for the Cyclones (1-1), who bounced back from a 17-point home loss to Louisiana-Lafayette in their opener two weeks ago.
"The biggest thing that you saw ... we played in a really good rhythm," Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said. "Now unfortunately, there's still a lot out there for this team to continue to grow. We left a lot out there again in terms of putting the nail in the coffin, finishing the game and doing some things we need to do to be better. But I thought there it was a warrior's effort from our kids."
