AMES, Iowa (AP) - Hunter Dekkers went 25-of-31 passing for 293 yards and four touchdowns as the Cyclones recorded their most lopsided opening victory since 2001.

Xavier Hutchinson caught a career-best three touchdowns, finishing with 128 yards on eight receptions. Iowa State running back Jirehl Brock rushed for 99 of his 104 yards in the second half, scoring on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter to give Iowa State a 35-10 lead.

The Cyclones scored on their first three possessions, and after a couple of hiccups late in the second quarter, regained control in the third quarter and cruised to the victory.
