The Iowa State Cyclones are looking like the best team in the Big 12 based on their current form. They can add to their lead atop the conference standings this coming Saturday when they pay the Texas Longhorns a visit, though that game should be tricky for Iowa State, as Sam Ehlinger and company are on a three-game unbeaten run themselves.

Betting on the Iowa State Cyclones (+2)
Record: 6-2 Overall / 6-1 Conference
Thanks to a big day by quarterback Brock Purdy, the Cyclones thrashed the Kansas State Wildcats at home Saturday to the tune of a 45-0 win. Purdy passed for 236 yards on 16-of-20 completions to go with three touchdowns with no interceptions thrown. Meanwhile, running back Breece Hall attacked the gut of the Wildcats’ defense and ended up with 135 rushing yards and a couple of touchdowns on 15 carries. Texas looked good defensively last Saturday against the West Virginia Mountaineers, but that’s a Mountaineers team that’s not really bringing a lot of pop on the offensive side of the field. Iowa State, meanwhile, entered the game against the Wildcats averaging 32.9 points per game, which was third overall in the Big 12. Iowa State has also averaged 45.0 points over its last three games.
The over is 4-3 in Iowa State’s last seven contests.
Betting on the Texas Longhorns (-2)
Record: 5-2 Overall / 4-2 Conference
Texas built its longest winning streak of the season by defeating the West Virginia Mountaineers at home on Nov. 7, 17-13. Usually a high-scoring team, the Longhorns were put into an acid test by West Virginia’s stingy defense, which is among the best in the nation. Nevertheless, quarterback Sam Ehlinger managed to pass for 184 yards and two touchdowns without turning the ball over on 15-of-31 completions. Ehlinger’s receivers can expect an easier time catching passes this time around against the Cyclones, who entered Saturday just 102nd in the nation with an opponents’ completion percentage of 65.49. The Longhorns are also well-rested, as their scheduled game against the Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence last Saturday was postponed due to COVID-19 related reasons. That gave Texas more time to rest up some of its hurting players like Keondre Coburn (ankle) and Jordan Whittington (hip flexor).
The under is 2-o in Texas’ last two games as the home team.
Texas wins, 33-30.
