CFB | Iowa State Cyclones (1-3) at Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-1)
Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

Big 12 college football features the Oklahoma State Cowboys hosting the Iowa State Cyclones.

The Iowa State Cyclones never found the groove on the offensive side of the football in a 17-14 loss at TCU as an eleven point underdog to fall to 1-4.Iowa State was outgained 299-199 but won the turnover battle 3-1 with a lost fumble returned for a TD by the Cowboys.

Cyclones quarterback Zeb Noland completed 14-28 for 78 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions while carrying the ball three times for 16 yards.

David Montgomery gave Iowa State some punch on the ground with 101 yards on 21 touches including a one yard touchdown. The Cyclones were unable to stretch the field through the air with leading receiver Deshaunte Jones logging three catches for 23 yards.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys took a 24-7 halftime lead against Kansas before posting a 48-28 victory as a 17 point road favorite. Oklahoma State cranked up their offense with 568 yards while limiting the Jayhawks to 368 yards.

Cowboys quarterback Taylor Cornelius enjoyed a near perfect passing performance as he completed 15-20 for 312 yards and four touchdowns and an interception while running for 18 yards on five totes.

Justice Hill topped OSU on the ground with 189 yards on 31 carries and a TD while Chuba Hubbard added 57 yards on five tries with a score. The Cowboys three headed receiving corps featured Landon Wolf and Tylan Wallace combine for 220 yards on ten catches and a TD each while Tyron Johnson snagged three passes for 86 yards and a pair of TD’s.

Under is 6-0 in Iowa State last 6 road games and under is 4-0 in Iowa State last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and under is 6-0 in Iowa State last 6 games on fieldturf. Over is 7-0 in Oklahoma State last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and Oklahoma State are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and over is 8-1 in Oklahoma State last 9 vs. a team with a losing record. Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and Iowa State are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Oklahoma State and home team is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 meetings.

I think the danger for Iowa State is falling behind and not being able to score with the bigger offense of Oklahoma State…

Pick:
Oklahoma State -10

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
