Only a handful of games left in the season!

That's right, two home games and three road games left in the 2014-15 regular season, with Iowa State hitting the road to take on Texas today in a gym they haven't won in since 2005. The Cyclones did the unlikely on Wednesday and came out of Gallagher-Iba Arena with a 70-65 win over Oklahoma State, which put them only one game behind Kansas for the conference lead. Once again, ISU will have to pull out a victory on the road to keep some pressure on the Jayhawks.

Prediction

Is it just me, or do we always seem to struggle to hit shots when we play in Austin?

Well, even though it feels that way, today I am feeling good. The win over OSU has pumped some optimism into this fanbase after over a month without a win away from Hilton Coliseum.

Despite the dreadful last five minutes against the Longhorns in Ames and our recent drought in the Frank Erwin Center, I'm going with the Clones today.

Iowa State 76 - Texas 70
