Numbers, it's said, rarely lie. With that thought in mind, HornsNation -- with a healthy assist from the ESPN Stats and Info crew -- will dig into the numbers each week and pull three stats that could play a significant role in the outcome of Texas' game. This week the focus is on Iowa State, a team that has lost three of its last four games.

1. 176
Iowa State started fast with a 4-1 record. But once the Cyclones hit the meat of the Big 12 everything started to turn slightly rancid. The Cyclones are 1-3 in their last four. A big reason for that is that they are being outgained by an average of 176 yards per game in their last four games.
