The bye week is behind us. Up next for the Cyclones is a road trip to No. 9 Oklahoma on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Oddsmakers weighed in on Sunday tabbing the Cyclones (5-3, 3-2) as a 14-point underdog to the 7-1 (4-1) Sooners.
Oklahoma, like Iowa State, is coming off of a bye week following a loss. The Sooners dropped their first game of the season at Kansas State, 48-41, on Oct. 26.
Oklahoma is headlined by Heisman Trophy front-runner, quarterback Jalen Hurts, who has thrown for nearly 2,500 yards this season while rushing for 801.
