Iowa State vs Kansas Prediction & Pick
It's easy to look at the trends and expect a blowout in favor of the Cyclones here. After all, Iowa State is 7-0 in its last seven games against Kansas. This Jayhawks team is different, though. They are converting on 64.9% of their third downs (No. 3 in FBS) and picking up 7.2 yards per play (T-No. 8 in FBS).
The Cyclones are going to have to prepare to defend Daniels both through the air and on the ground, which is something they haven't had to do against a QB so far this season. This Kansas squad has all the momentum in the world right now and with passionate crowd support, it will emerge victorious.
