    Predictions: Texas Tech @ Iowa State

    What does everyone have for a prediction? I think the defense is as sound as we have seen for a long time. I think field position plays a huge role in this game as Kirby will continue to be a weapon pinning teams deep in their own territory. Like I mentioned yesterday, its one thing to have drives of 40-50 yards, its another to have 85-95 yard drive continuously. With our defense not giving up the big play, it makes opponents grind 10-12 play drives to score points. Its also been since early 3rd quarter of the Tulsa game since we have given up a touchdown. I think this Tech team reminds me a lot of Tulsa with a decent defense and experience on the defensive line, serviceable linebackers and an inexperienced group in the secondary. On offense they have good skill players and running backs like Tulsa and a better throwing quarterback but one that, unlike Green, will stay in the pocket. I just see no way they again stop our running game, I think, as a unit, this offensive line is as good if not better than last season and our passing game will be threat. We will hold the ball the majority of the game and keep turnovers to around 1 while forcing Tech's fumble prone running to 2 turnovers and our solid secondary forces a pick. I dont discount how their non conference schedule may play in this game. They have never been behind the 8 ball in any game, facing no adversity, they have not seen the speed we will present, and they have yet to leave Texas this season. Right now you can say you know more about Iowa State than you know at any position for Texas Tech. Tuberville has yet to out coach Rhoads and has won really nothing in 2 years outside of beating Oklahoma. This is a 5-7 team from last year, with some bad losses and in football you dont change overnight especially if the coach may not be the right fit. Give me a better coached team, the home team, and a 4-0 start for the Clones. ISU 31-20.

    I don't think we'll have as much sucess running them ball against them as we've had in the past, we had 2 QB's much better at the zone read play (which torched Tech) the last 2 years. That sucess will open some things up for Steele in the passing game. I think they will move the ball against us, similar to the way Tulsa did. I think it's a tight game where whomever wins the turnover battle winnig the game. I like ISU 34-24.

    Our defense does fairly well against a Big 12 offense, but we give them too many possessions and our offense can't keep up

    I think our defense is too much.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Heart: Tech 41 ISU 34

    Head: ISU 34 Tech 28

    Wallet: taking ISU if laying 3 or fewer points. Taking Tech if getting 7 or more points.
