    I think the Cyclones gained a lot of confidence last week. 42-17 Cyclones.

    I think this week ISU finally gets some long runs from the RB's. I think similar score to last week 49-23.

    Interesting what they have done to bowl in both endzones of the "Jack Trice Stadium Blueprint."

    Same small press box.

    I hope you guys are right, but I'm probably not picking us to win a road game by 3+ touchdowns.

    It's on Field Turf and not natural grass so I am assuming we will score 100 points and win going away after the 1st quarter.

    Am I doing it right? :rolleyes:

    Tough place to play against a good coach and a scrappy team. A stressful 31-27 Cyclone win. All victories are sweet, Big 12 road victories against historically good programs are especially sweet for this program.

    Toughest road trip of the year, small margins

    ISU 24 WVU 21

    Nothing bad ever happens when everyone picks Iowa State to win by double digits.

    ISU wins 28-21. I think this is going to be a tough test. WVU has improved a lot from week to week. Obviously we have too. I think we're the better team. I'm not impressed with the WVU QB. I think we can get him to commit some turnovers. I just hope we have a consistent running game this week. Let's just get the W and get out of Morgantown!

    Among the staff picks, @brentblum is closest to my guess.

    This is a probably-should-win game, that makes me fidgety as a Cyclones fan.

    I don't think it'll be like last week, but I could see a 38 - 21 type of W.

    I could also see a 21-17 type of W.

    Feels like it could go either way like Baylor or ISU wins going away.

    I don't see a blowout in favor of WV.

    I think our D gives them fits and scores at least once.
    Offense has a meh day largely cuz that is all they need.

    31-20 ISU with a late WVU score making it look closer than it is.

    Not to derail but theirs fits the stadium better. Never been there but it looks to be 2 stories and a bit wider. It isn’t really that ours is to small it’s just disproportionally tall.
