Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State Prediction

I’m on the under here. These are two teams that like to implement defensive-minded philosophies to get the job done and while Iowa State’s had a lot more success putting it into practice at home, Oklahoma State can easily turn games into rock fights as well and I think that’s what we’re in store for in this game. Give me the under in a low-scoring war.
