Think the game plan vs. Texas Tech. Think about what you saw in the second half against Kansas. In a frigid Jack Trice Stadium, I expect a heavy dose of David Montgomery early and often to hopefully take the will out of the Bears. I don’t expect a blowout here, even though I think Iowa State is a significantly better team. Just get out of this one healthy and let the defense do the dirty work.

I think this will be a tight game almost all the way through. In the end, Brock Purdy hits Tarique Milton late in the game to give the Cyclones some distance and a double-digit win.

Iowa State has become the new vampire squad in the Big 12. This is an efficient, ball control vampire special.

Baylor’s ALMOST back and playing hard, tough football for Coach Ruhle. ISU’s simply much better defensively and stronger in terms of ball security and discipline. David Montgomery tops 100 yards again and Brock Purdy hits on just enough big plays to allow the ‘Cones to win somewhat comfortably, but not cover.

Iowa State finds success on the ground and hits on a few big pass plays to build a double-digit lead in the first half and pull out a comfortable win.
