Oklahoma State (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) finds themselves undefeated though mid-October and picked up a statement victory in Austin last week with a 34-24 win over Texas. The offense was mostly carried by running back Jaylen Warren, who took 33 carries for 198 yards. The Cowboys’ Top 10 SP+ ranked defense once again stepped up huge, holding the Longhorns to just seven points in the second half and limited them to just 4-of-15 third/fourth down conversions.
Iowa State (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) emerged victorious in Farmageddon last Saturday, topping Kansas State 33-20 in Manhattan, KS. Running back Breece Hall also carried his team last week, taking 30 carries for 197 yards and two touchdowns. An upset here would vault ISU back into national consciousness after they suffered early-season losses to Iowa and Baylor.

This should be a stingy, defensive battle between two teams trying to stay near the top of the Big 12 standings. Like last week, expect Jaylen Warren and Breece Hall to handle heavy loads for their respective offenses. The Cowboys are going to make this a tight one and with the line gradually moving in Iowa State’s favor, take OSU to cover.
