Following Saturday’s convincing 38-14 victory over West Virginia, the Cyclones are on roll in Big 12 play with another tough road trip coming up this weekend.

Iowa State (4-2, 2-1) will take its talents to Lubbock to challenge a hungry Texas Tech (3-3, 1-2) team that lost in double-overtime at Baylor last weekend – in controversial fashion.

Oddsmakers have chimed in and have the Cyclones slotted as an early 6.5 point favorite.

Saturday’s game will kick off at 11 a.m. and be televised on FS1.
