The Cyclones need a win to gain momentum and still keep a bowl game in the discussion. The Cowboys are high flying on offense and tough as nails on defense. The Cowboys running defense could spell doom for a Cyclone offense looking to get back on track on the ground, but the key match up will be the talented Iowa State secondary keeping Cowboys' quarterback Daxx Garman in check.
Paul Rhoads has made a habit of beating top 25 teams on the road during his time in Ames, but has failed to do so since an upset over similarly ranked Texas Tech in 2011. This is a young Oklahoma State team coming off a hard fought win over Texas Tech last week and is looking forward to a trip to Lawrence next.... who am I kidding, it's Kansas.
This isn't a trap game for Oklahoma State but it's a big game for Iowa State to show their fan base that there's something left in the tank for Paul Rhoads and his regime.
Grab a beer and settle in, IT'S GAMEDAY BITCHES!
