The Texas Longhorns and Iowa State Cyclones face off on Saturday in a Big 12 college football showdown at Jack Trice Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, it was Iowa State that came away with the 23-20 victory. 

The Texas Longhorns have had some major disappointments this season sitting with a 4-4 record. In the last game against Baylor, Texas could only score 24 points, and that led to the seven point defeat. Texas is averaging 39.4 points while the defense is giving up 29.8 points per game.Under center for Texas is Casey Thompson who has thrown for 1,554 yards, 17 touchdowns, and six interceptions. In this game if Texas wants to find success the offense is going to need to be a whole lot better. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Iowa State Cyclones who sit with a 5-3 record but they are coming off a bad loss in their last game. Iowa State gave up 38 points to West Virginia and the offense couldn’t make up for it, only scoring 31. Iowa State is averaging 32.1 points while the defense is giving up 19.6 points per game. Under center for Iowa is Brock Purdy and he has thrown for 1,833 yards, 12 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Breece Hall has also rushed for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Texas is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games as an underdog. Iowa State is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games in November. Texas is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven games in Ames. The under is 6-0 in the last six meetings. 

After Iowa State struggled with their defense in the last game I don’t trust them to slow down Texas and their offense. I expect Texas is going to run up the score, and they are going to keep this game close. I also am throwing a few dollars on Texas to win on the money line. I also expect there to be plenty of scoring and this game is going to go well over the total.
