Iowa State had moved the ball with some consistency, but lacked a big play throughout the day against Iowa, and even last week against Northern Iowa.
Aaron Horne, a teammate of quarterback Steele Jantz in junior college in California, had a 57-yard catch-and-run to get Iowa State in the red zone. It took a 17-16 lead with an eight-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Josh Lenz on a flag route.
That 57-yarder was the longest play of the season for Iowa State, whose previous long against Iowa on Saturday was a 15-yard run by Shontrelle Johnson. Iowa State has the momentum, we'll see if it can keep it.
The fourth quarter is about to start in Ames. Should be a great one.
