    CW says this: "I think this all comes down to one very simple question. How good is Texas Tech?"

    I hate to be that guy that says we beat ourselves rather than giving credit to the other team. However, I think this game comes down to turnovers. If we continue to see interceptions thrown by the Cyclones, we are not going to continue to win. We are playing better teams each week, and it will be much more difficult to overcome those types of mistakes. If we lose, I predict we beat ourselves with turnovers. That said, I think we win by 6 in a low scoring game. Cyclones 16 -10.

    Good job Chris. I'm going to somewhat agree with your prediction, but add in that if we turn the ball over less than twice then I'm thinking 38 - 17.

    I think we'll see a couple of plays reminiscent of this one:

    Re: Preview: Iowa State vs. Texas Tech

    Iím picking the Cyclones to win this game by double digits and Iím banking on the fact that Iowa State learned from its bad bye week before the Texas game a year ago.
    Ugh! I think you meant to say "hope". It's not a fact until there is a "W" in the win column. I'm nervous about turnovers and bye week rust. If we win, it won't be by double digits.

    I agree but I think it goes without saying that every game comes down to turnovers to a point. I mentioned that in my 3 keys to victory. I guess I'm to the point where I actually believe that this Iowa State team is different than many of the past. I really do. Hopefully I'm right.

    I see what you did there...

    Week 1: Tulsa
    Week 2: Iowa
    Week 3: WIU
