    ESPN.com lists us as a 52.5 point favorite for Saturday...

    NCAA College Football Odds and Daily Lines - ESPN

    I think they meant that the over/under is 52.5. But still. Glad to know that the typos believe in us!

    Yahoo only has one sportsbook posting a line, but that gives us a 19 point edge.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a typo.

    I can only dream of the day that we will be favored 52.5 pts in a football game.

    The line I saw today was "OFF".

    I hate to say it... but I think I'd take the under on that one


    Even OU was only listed as 20 some point favorites over us (though they'd have come close to hitting this one )


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    I'd put my life savings on Kansas and the points.

    Only to see Iowa State win 53-0.

    Means there's some inside craziness going on where they aren't establishing a line yet. Usually it has to do with injuries but I'm not sure what they're waiting for on this one.

    Maybe they got the decimal point in the wrong spot and meant 5.25.

    I'd assume because of the Kansas QB situation, but it looks like some likes lines are starting to come out. Yahoo has two sportsbooks posting now, both ISU by 19 with an O/U of 56.

    The line is off because of the injuries that KU has. They will re-open the betting when they get a full injury report. If they re-open it at all.

    Don't do it! Line will probably be down to 52 by gametime.
