Iowa State rolled over it’s Sun Belt opponent from last year when the Cyclones steamrolled ULM 72-20. This year? This year will be no easy task as the Ragin’ Cajuns are one of the teams to beat in the Sun Belt. Louisiana’s offense is still loaded, with the 8th-best rushing attack in the country last year returning veteran QB Levi Lewis who threw for 3,050 yards, 26 touchdowns and 4 picks as well as the one-two punch in the backfield of Elijah Mitchell and Trey Ragas who combined for just under 2,000 rushing yards and 27 touchdowns last season. The Ragin’ Cajuns are no joke, returning a bunch of pieces that contributed to an 11-win season while finishing top-10 in the country in terms of total offense, scoring per game and yards per play. Iowa State just has a tendency of starting slow, and the Cyclones will have their hands full from the word go. I’d advise the Cyclones to be on upset alert here as I think this is a field goal game. Give me Louisiana and the points as my premium pick for this game.
