AwardsEdit

National Team of the WeekEdit

Following the 24–0 shutout of Texas on the weekend of October 31, the 2015 Iowa State football team received the AutoNation National Team of the Week by the FWAA.[41]

This was its third shutout over a Big 12 opponent in school history, the previous against Kansas 34–0 on November 23, 2013. The Cyclones gained 426 yards in total offensive while the defense allowed only 204 yards, which is the third-lowest total an ISU defense has allowed vs. a Big 12 opponent in school history. Also, this was the fewest yards allowed vs. a FBS team in the Paul Rhoads era. The dominating ISU defense held Texas to nine plays in ISU territory with seven of these on Texas's final drive.[42]

This was Texas’s first shutout loss against an unranked team since November 18, 1961, when TCU shutout #1 ranked Texas 6–0.

For Iowa State, Mike Warren, the nation’s best freshman rusher, picked up 157 yards on the ground on 32 carries and added the first ISU touchdown, the fourth-best rookie rushing effort in school history. Joel Lanning got his first career start at quarterback, rushing for 64 yards and completing 19 of 37 passes for 188 yards with a touchdown pass to Dondre Daley and no interceptions. Freshman Joshua Thomas punched in the third ISU touchdown, his sixth of the season, tying a Cyclone freshman record set by Alexander Robinson in 2007.[43][44][45][46][47]

This was the Cyclones first home win over the Longhorns in six tries

Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the WeekEdit

Jordan Harris was honored as the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week for games ending October 31, 2015. Harris's seven tackles and one interception led the Cyclones crushing shutout of Texas 24–0. Jordan is the third Cyclone to receive National Player of the Week honors: WR Todd Blythe on October 30, 2005, and LB Jesse Smith on October 25, 2009.[48][49]
