Iowa State comes in at 6-5 after losing to Texas in Ames, 26-16.  BYU in Provo, 45-13.

The ISU offense is scoring 24.8 ppg, while passing for 218.6 ypg, rushing for 129.2 ypg, and converting 38.5% of their third downs.

Iowa State vs Kansas State Trends

ISU is 6-5 against the spread, with a 4-7 O/U record. 

KSU is 8-3 ATS, with a 6-5 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Kansas State has been really good since a road loss to Oklahoma State, and I do believe they’ll close their regular season strong here. Iowa State has been pretty scrappy down the stretch, but with a faint chance at going to the Big 12 title game still at stake for KState, their pedestrian offensive approach may not be enough here on the road. The total is attainable, as eight of KSU’s last ten games have hit this number, so roll the Wildcats to win here, and give the Over a hard look.
