Iowa State vs Texas Prediction & Pick
Iowa State has beaten Texas three straight times. Now you get inflated points to back the Cyclones, who have lost three straight close contests by 7 points or less to Big 12 foes. The Cyclones are last in the league in rushing averaging just 106 yards per game. That's a concern, but the Cyclones defense has been nearly dominant in allowing a league-low 91 rushing yards per game and 186 passing yards per game. Iowa State QB Hunter Dekkers is capable with more than 1,500 yards passing and 11 touchdowns.
Texas is worthy of their ranking and clearly on the upswing. The Longhorns power rating is even higher and QB Quinn Ewers returned from injury last week to pass for 289 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Longhorns also have a big time running back in Bijan Robinson, who will counted on to carry a big load against a stout Cyclones defensive front seven.
Final Score Prediction: Texas: 27 | Iowa State: 17

Recent results have clearly impacted this point spread, as Texas would have been near a 7-8 point favorite if this game was played in Week 2. Iowa State has been in all three conference games this season against winning and ranked teams.
The Cyclones are scoring a Big 12 low 23 points per game. But the Iowa State scoring defense leads the Big 12 allowing just 13.7 points per game this season while Texas' defense is close behind allowing 17.8 points per game.
Add in a Texas letdown situation off a big rivalry win over Oklahoma, and a Longhorns 1-8 ATS run as double-digit favorite in Big 12 games, and you have inflated points with a defensive 'Dog to support.
Bet: Iowa State +16.5 (-110)
