    Adam Carper’s Picks
    Oklahoma State @ Iowa State – Yes, Okie State has better athletes than us, but on gameday, a team that plays together can overcome a team with talent and I’ve been really impressed with that aspect of the Cyclones this year. Give me the Clones but the question is do we rush the field after this game?
    Chris Williams’ Picks
    Oklahoma State @ Iowa State – I’ve been saying all week that I have a weird feeling about this game. I really think that Iowa State is going to win. Cyclones 38, Oklahoma State 31
    Bret Meyer’s Picks
    Oklahoma State @ Iowa State – Beautiful weather, ABC telecast, top 25 team coming to Ames, bowl eligibility one win away. Too many reasons not be a great win for the Cyclones. Offense comes alive and wins a shootout. ISU 41- OSU37
    I hope so fellas. I really, really hope so. Talk about a week in Cyclone athletics that would go down in history if ISU won both of its big games on Saturday.

    Sounds like they all are ateast giving us a chance. Should be a typical football game in that whoever wins the turnover battles wins. OSU has proved it, and we have too.

    A turnover here or there, JTS goes ******* crazy, and AA gets us in from the redzone. I'll take our chances.

    Weather is gonna be great. PACK THE JACK!

    Although OSU obviously should be (and is) favored, I do like our chances in this one. I think A&M has really gotten better as the year goes on, and they're probably better than OSU at this point. Add in that IMO we left a lot of points on the field against A&M and this game is at home, I think we have a good shot as long as Arnaud and Robinson can play throughout.

    This is my thinking as well. Yes, A&M whipped us. No problem admitting that.

    But the game within the game was that ISU moved the ball on A&M. We pretty much had 3 turnovers (one TO on downs) and had a poorly executed punt from the A&M 37 yard line (that strategy is no good unless it gets downed at 10 or less) on our first 4-5 possessions. The game was lost in the first half with missed opportunities.

    But we are at home this weekend. It will take a +3 turnover margin, but I truly feel like we will be in this game.

    Re: This Week's Experts Pick'Em

    I will have no disagreement if people want to rush the field after this victory!


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

    You know, I didn't think I could love Bret Meyer any more than I already do. After reading his picks the last few weeks, I realize I was wrong.
