Why Kansas Will Win

Iowa State has a high-powered offense that’s putting up big plays and yards in chunks, but when Kansas is on, it can do that, too. As long as it’s not screwing up, it can go off.

The offense has fallen flat lately – the running game hasn’t worked over the last two games – but the passing attack is moving the chains and doing just fine when it’s not turning the ball over.

What’s been KU’s biggest issue over the last few weeks? Giveaways.

The defense hasn’t come up with a takeaway over the last two games, and the offense got picked off five times. How were the the Jayhawks able to be interesting for the few weeks before the struggles? No giveaways.

The Jayhawks went three straight games without a turnover, and gave it up just once in the win over Texas Tech.

Iowa State’s defense isn’t bad, but it doesn’t force takeaways on a consistent basis. Ten of the team’s 11 turnovers on the year have been generated in just four games.

KU has to hope that this is one of the games when the D isn’t forcing mistakes.

Why Iowa State Will Win

Yeah … the Kansas running game.

There’s talent and experience in the backfield, but it’s all falling flat over the last few weeks.

Oklahoma State isn’t being confused with the New England Patriots defensively, but it held the Jayhawks to just 39 rushing yards on 24 carries last week. Kansas State allowed just 61 yards the game before.

Kansas has had a few explosions here and there – ripping up Boston College and Texas – but it’s not getting consistent enough performances from the line or the rest of the offense.

Iowa State’s defense has been able to hold up just fine, for the most part. It’s second in the Big 12 against the run, it’s generating sacks on a regular basis, and it should be able to overwhelm the KU offensive front.

What’s Going To Happen

The Cyclones will win on the lines. The defensive front will do its part, the offensive line that’s doing a great job in pass protection will keep the limited Jayhawk pass rush from generating anything to bother QB Brock Purdy, and it’ll be a fifth-straight win in the series.
