Iowa State will draw a national audience on ABC two weeks in a row.

The Cyclones’ Oct. 10 contest with Texas Tech has been selected as a 2:30 p.m. kick on the network. Iowa State will play Oklahoma at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday on ABC as well.

Iowa State moved to 1-0 in Big 12 play with a 37-34 win over TCU this weekend while the Red Raiders dropped to 0-1 after losing 63-56 to Texas in overtime.

The Cyclones have won each of the last four matchups with the Red Raiders, including last season’s 34-24 victory in Lubbock. The last time Texas Tech came to Ames, Iowa State won 40-31.
