The nation’s top-ranked offense will invade Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday (2:30 kick on FS1) and believe it or not, the Cyclones are only a 3-point underdog.
The thing about Texas Tech is while Kliff Kingsbury’s Red Raiders are averaging over 600 yards and 43.38 pions per game, their defense is as bad as the offense is good.
Texas Tech (4-6), who heartbreakingly (missed PAT) lost 45-44 to Oklahoma State on Saturday, has the nation’s 125th ranked defense while giving up 517 yards per game.
Iowa State won its first Big 12 game of the season by a 31-24 final at Kansas on Saturday.
