Iowa State’s opponent on Oct. 24 will have this week off just like the Cyclones.

Oklahoma State’s game on Oct. 17 with Baylor has been postponed to Dec. 12 due to a COVID-19 outbreak inside the Bears’ program. Baylor halted football activities late this week due to the outbreak.

This means No. 7 Oklahoma State is guaranteed to be undefeated and most likely a top-10 team when the Cyclones visit Stillwater. Kick time is expected to be announced on Monday unless the game is selected for the six-day window.

Iowa State moved to 3-1 overall and 3-0 in Big 12 play on Saturday with a 31-15 win over Texas Tech at Jack Trice Stadium. The Cyclones enter their bye week on a three-game win streak and ranked No. 20 in the AP Poll.
