The Iowa State Cyclones and West Virginia Mountaineers face off on Saturday in a Big 12 showdown at Milan Puskar Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Iowa State came away with the 42-6 victory. 

Iowa State comes into this game with a 5-2 record and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Oklahoma State, they fell behind early, but they battled back as they came away with the 24-21 victory. The Cyclones are averaging 32.3 points while the defense is giving up 17 points. Under center for Iowa State is Brock Purdy who has thrown for 1,648 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Breece Hall is one of the best backs in the country rushing for 818 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is the West Virginia Mountaineers who sit with a 3-4 record overall and this season has been a major disappointment. Even with the struggles, West Virginia is coming off an impressive victory over TCU. The defense gave up only 17 points, and that led to the 12 point victory. West Virginia is averaging 28.4 points while the defense is giving up 21,7 points per game. Under center for West Virginia is Jarret Doege who has thrown for 1,701 yards, eight touchdowns, and five interceptions. Leddie Brown has also a big season rushing for 533 yards and nine touchdowns.

Iowa State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games. West Virginia is 7-1-1 against the spread in the last nine home games. The favorite is 5-1-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings. 

This has been a series dominated by the favorite, and I don’t believe that is going to change in this game. Look for West Virginia’s offense to struggle against the Cyclones' defense, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for West Virginia to finish with 13 points or less, and Iowa State will cover the spread.
