AUSTIN — Iowa State heads into a bye week without a Big 12 victory. The Cyclones gave up a late touchdown in a 24-21 loss at Texas. They are 3-4 on the season.

That’s Cyclone coach Matt Campbell who says the bye week will help them get healthier.

Quarterback Hunter Dekkers passed for 329 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. He also rushed for a score.

Next up is an October 29th game at home against Oklahoma



CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Theo Day threw three touchdown passes, ran for another score, and Northern Iowa racked up 548 yards on offense in a 42-14 victory over Utah Tech. The Panthers struck early, with Day’s 44-yard touchdown pass to Sergio Morancy coming on their first possession. Day threw second-quarter TD passes of 32 yards to Desmond Hutson and 70 yards to Sam Schnee for a 34-7 halftime lead. Day’s 1-yard run early in the third quarter was UNI’s final score of the game. Day completed 13 of 23 passes for 308 yards, an average of 23.7 yards per completion. The Panthers had 229 yards on the ground.



MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Dalvin Cook rushed for a 53-yard insurance touchdown in the fourth quarter and the Minnesota Vikings held on to beat the injury-riddled Miami Dolphins 24-16. Cook was quiet most of the afternoon until his score with 3:15 left restored Minnesota’s two-touchdown lead. Miami had rallied behind Teddy Bridgewater, a former Viking who returned Sunday from concussion protocol but was only put into game action after third-stringer Skylar Thompson injured his thumb in the second quarter. Cook’s burst followed a fumble by Dolphins receiver Jaylen Waddle on a drive when Miami was swiftly moving the ball down the field, trailing 16-10.
