In the century-plus history of Iowa State football, the Cyclones have only beaten Oklahoma five times.

Las Vegas is not predicting No. 6 to come in Thursday night’s 6:30 kick on ESPN. In fact, the experts in the desert have tabbed the Sooners as a 20-point favorite.

Iowa State (1-7, 0-5) lost to Kansas State 31-26 on Saturday.

The Sooners (6-2, 5-0) throttled Kansas 56-3.
