I took Iowa State at +5.5. I think they will win outright, but the points are just insurance. I think there is any team that is head and shoulders above Iowa State right now. Both of these teams are disciplined and play good D, but I have full confidence that this coaching staff will make the correct adjustments to come away with the W!

What do you guys think the defensive plan is going to be? Gonna have to rush more than 3 against Hill

Probably similar to OU. Give him time to throw, sure, but cover the deep ball and don't let him run wild.

Offense is going to have to be clicking.

I never bet on ISU but last week was tempting...a team we beat by 50 the year before when we are drastically improved this year and getting 7 points???

Anyone know the last time ISU did a towel giveaway to the fans for football? The last I can remember off the top of my head (and could certainly be wrong) was the gold towels handed out to the first 30,000 fans for the Okie State game back in 2011. Would love to see something like that again for this weekend's game. Perk for the fans, looks cool when everyone is waving them, and possibly something to keep the crowd active throughout the entire game. Nationally televised on a major network, top 25 teams, Big12 title/CFB playoff implications. Seems to be a good time to pull the trigger.

Every projection that I've seen has given us about a 30% chance to beat a top-5 opponent this week. So pretty much we have a 30% chance to get two top-5 wins this year, when we had one in our history before that. It will be tough, but awesome if it happens.

I think you'll be able to get ISU+7.5 or more in the near future, you'll probalby want to double down.

Well I have towels from homecoming 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014... So I'm guessing there will be towels at least in the student section.

Agreed. IT went from 7 down to 5.5 really quickly, now it's back up to 6.5 I am sure I will wait until closer to the week and see how high it will get. It will help that money line as well.

I’m surprised it’s that low. I figured ISU +11.5 would have been more likely.

TCU is very well coached, in addition to having great talent. Definitely the biggest challenge of the year imo.
