LINE: Iowa State -14.5, o/u: 46.5
ATS PICK: Iowa State
Kansas isn’t Kansas anymore.
It rose up and stunned TCU 27-26 last week …
A week after losing to Texas Tech by 32.
It gave West Virginia a wee bit of a push in Morgantown …
And lost by 16.
When Kansas loses to FBS teams this year, it loses big, with all four of them by over two touchdowns.
Iowa State might have fought to get b Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, and it lost to TCU, but it doesn’t turn the ball over in bulk.
The one common theme for Kansas when it does well is takeaways. The Jayhawks have forced two or more turnovers in five games, including nine in the last three games. the Jayhawks have to be at least a +3 to win this game, but Iowa State is a +2 on the season.
It hasn’t turned it over more than twice so far, and it only gave it away twice in wins over Oklahoma State and Akron.
QB Brock Purdy and the Cyclones are careful with the ball – they’re not going to screw up enough to blow this. More to the point, they’ll run wild on this Jayhawk D.
