Saturday Blitz Vegas Big 12 Predictions Week 6

Iowa State Cyclones at No. 21 Oklahoma State Cowboys

Line: Oklahoma State by 17

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have gained lots of respect this season after they were expected to go through a rebuilding year. But after playing Florida State close, then losing J.W. Walsh and not missing a beat with Daxx Garman. Mike Gundy’s system has clearly proven itself, but now it’s time for the group to prove they belong with the Big 12 elite as well. With Iowa State coming to town this weekend, the Cowboys need Garman to do what he’s been doing. The Cyclones have struggled on defense overall, so if Oklahoma State just plays its game, this should be a win. But don’t forget that 2011 Iowa State-Oklahoma State match-up that cost the Cowboys a shot at the national title. Oklahoma State has to take this game seriously.

  • Iowa State, meanwhile, needs to find a way to focus on its passing game, as the Cowboys aren’t great in the secondary. Sam B. Richardson will have to be the cornerstone of the offense once again, picking up yards through the air and using his mobility to give Oklahoma State fits. But the Cyclones also have to find a way to establish the run game, which has been absent through the first four games of the season. Then they also need quite a few breaks, or Oklahoma State mistakes, to be able to pull off the upset on the road.


    Mike Gundy’s  Cowboys won’t have any trouble with Iowa State this year. Oklahoma State is too good on offense, and the Hawkeyes have absolutely no offense to speak of to make this a game. The Cowboys will have this game in hand by halftime and roll to an easy victory.
