The Line: Kansas Jayhawks -16.5 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds

TV: ESPN2

The Iowa State Cyclones look to shake up the college basket rankings with a win at the #10 Kansas Jayhawks.

The Iowa State Cyclones need an immediate change in momentum after opening their conference schedule with three straight defeats following a 96-87, overtime loss at the Oklahoma State Cowboys as a 7.5 point underdog. Iowa State was outshot 46.5%-40.6% with the only difference being the Cowboys hitting a few more shots in overtime.

The Cyclones nearly pulled the upset thanks to a contest high 30 points and five pulls from Donovan Jackson on 8-12 shooting including 6-8 from distance. Solomon Young and Nick Weller-Babb tossed in 12 points apiece with Weller-Babb hauling in nine rebounds and handing out eleven assists.

The #10 Kansas Jayhawks are once again a National Championship threat although surviving a tough Big 12 schedule is job number one. Kansas improved to 2-1 in the conference with an 88-84 victory at the #15 TCU Horned Frogs as a two point road favorite with 50.9% shooting overcoming 39.1% accuracy and 16 more looks from TCU. 

Over is 13-3 in Iowa State last 16 road games and over is 22-6 in Iowa State last 28 overall and over is 19-7 in Iowa State last 26 vs. Big 12. Under is 19-7 in Kansas last 26 Tuesday games. Over is 16-4 in the last 20 meetings in Kansas and over is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.

I would say Kansas has a sizable advantage here but I’m not paying to find out if the Jayhawks put it together overr a Cyclons squad I'm not in love with either...
