Oklahoma State has been on a solid run since the Kansas game, and really overall when the Cowboys aren’t playing ranked teams they’re a formidable opponent. Oklahoma State won the last matchup between these squads—which wasn’t that long ago—by a score of 73-61.
As for Iowa State, they put together a pretty solid game versus West Virginia, but outside of that they haven’t been all that competitive across their last six games. I’m going to stick with Oklahoma State here. Should be fairly close most of the way.
