    Missouri (7-3) at Iowa State (3-8)
    2 PM EST Saturday November 18th
    Why to Watch: It's the end of the Dan McCarney era at Iowa State after 12 years of occasional success and a disastrous finish. The Cyclones have been awful all season long and haven't even been close on a six-game losing streak since beating Northern Iowa in late September. Missouri might be disappointed to be out of the Big 12 title race with Nebraska clinching the North last week, but there's still plenty to play for with jockeying going on for bowl position and a shot at a ten-win season, the program's first since 1960, still possible. The Tigers are on a two game losing streak and have to focus in what's certain to be an emotional day in Ames.
    Why Missouri Might Win: With the rest from a week off, the Tigers should be the far fresher team. The offensive line should give QB Chase Daniel all the time he needs to throw against an awful pass defense that made Colorado's Bernard Jackson, leader of one of the nation's most inefficient passing game, look like Troy Smith. Daniel should be able to dink and dunk his way to his heart's content, while the running game shouldn't have any problem moving the ball if ...
    Why Iowa State Might Win: ... it doesn't keep turning the ball over. The Tigers were plagued by turnovers against Oklahoma and Nebraska losing it seven times. Fumbling has been the big issues with seven in the last four games, and all seemed to turn out to be killers. Iowa State's offense needs a kick-start and a bit of momentum, and getting a few breaks would be just the ticket.
    Who to Watch: Will Chase Daniel relax? The Missouri quarterback was terrific throughout the first half of the season, and then in big games against Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Nebraska, he pressed too much, tried to make every throw, and appeared to try to do everything himself. While he spread the ball around well over the last few weeks, he has to find his NFL-caliber tight ends, Martin Rucker and Chase Coffman more. Most quarterbacks dream of having one safety valve, and Daniel has two.
    What Will Happen: Iowa State will be jacked up to win for McCarney, but if Missouri can withstand the early wave of emotion, and win the turnover margin, the overall talent will come through in the second half.
    CFN Prediction: Missouri 31 ... Iowa State 10 ... Line: Missouri -14.5

    10 seems to be a number we like to hit in our games this year. What a terrible disappointment this year has been.
