TCU will look to become bowl eligible when it squares off against bowl-bound Iowa State on Friday afternoon in their Big 12 Conference finale in Ames, Iowa.

And while the Cyclones will play in the postseason no matter what happens on Friday, the game with TCU is a chance for Iowa State's accomplished senior class to win one more time in front of the home crowd.

The Horned Frogs (5-6, 3-5 Big 12) travel to Iowa after a nail-biting 31-28 home win over Kansas on Nov. 20. Griffin Kell's 25-yard field goal with six seconds to play produced the win for the Horned Frogs, their second victory in their three games under interim coach Jerry Kill.

"Proud of the kids," Kill said. "They know and understand that we're not going to be here. There's a new coaching staff coming in. They're still playing hard. The coaches are coaching hard."

Kendre Miller rushed for 112 yards that included a 56-yard TD run. Miller eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the third time in his last six contests as TCU ran for 326 yards in the game. Max Duggan passed for 166 yards for the Horned Frogs and Derius Davis caught six passes for 103 yards and ran 43 yards for a touchdown for the Horned Frogs.

Iowa State (6-5, 4-4) heads home after a 28-21 loss at No. 13 Oklahoma on Nov. 20. The Cyclones have dropped two straight games after shellacking Texas 30-7 on Nov. 1 and have lost three of their past four contests.

"A little bit of precision and detail at points in the game probably cost us the football game, but not our heart, not our character and not our leadership," Cyclones coach Matt Campbell said. "I'm a proud football coach because of that."

It is the final home game for the Cyclones' 23 seniors, including record-breaking running back Breece Hall and quarterback Brock Purdy. Hall has scored a rushing touchdown in 23 straight games, tying an FBS record set by Arkansas' Bill Burnett from 1968-70; Purdy owns or shares 31 school records.

Iowa State owns a 10-game home winning streak against league teams and can finish off a perfect home record versus Big 12 teams for the second straight season.

Before the season, the Cyclones were considered a real candidate to play for the Big 12 title. Instead, they will be trying to avoid a .500 season.

TCU has an 8-4 lead all-time in the rivalry with the Cyclones, including a 3-2 edge in games played in Ames.

Texas Christian Horned Frogs vs. Iowa State Cyclones

Brock Purdy had 349 yards of offense to go with four touchdowns -- two on passes -- as the Iowa State Cyclones beat TCU 49-24 in Ames, Iowa, on Saturday.

Purdy completed 19 of 24 passes for 247 yards and he ran for 102 yards and two touchdowns to help the Cyclones (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) get their first conference win.

Johnnie Lang rushed for 72 yards and two touchdowns and Deshaunte Jones had 10 receptions for 110 yards for Iowa State.

Max Duggan was 17 of 25 for 219 yards and two TD passes, Darius Anderson ran for 49 yards and a score and Jalen Reagor had four catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns for the Horned Frogs (3-2, 1-1).

The start of the game was pushed back two hours due to weather.

Purdy had two touchdown passes in the first half -- a 1-yarder to Chase Allen to open the scoring in the first quarter and a 25-yard connection with Charlie Kolar in the second -- to help build a 21-3 lead at halftime.

The defense scored in the second quarter when linebacker O'Rien Vance sacked Duggan and forced a fumble. Eyioma Uwazurike picked up the ball at the 1 and ran it in to make it 14-3.

Purdy opened the third-quarter scoring with a 10-yard TD run. After Duggan had a scoring strike to Reagor, Lang ran for the first of his two touchdowns to put the Cyclones ahead 35-10.

The Horned Frogs, who came into the game averaging 40.5 points a game, got their offense going. Anderson scored on a 5-yard run and Duggan hooked up with Reagor again to make it 35-24 with 9:01 left.

Iowa State responded with a 75-yard drive in just five plays to make it a three-score game. The big play was Purdy's 32-yard pass to Landen Akers, and a facemask penalty on the play set up the Cyclones at the TCU 9.

Purdy scored on the next play to make it 42-24.

Reagor fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Lang scored four plays later to seal it.
