Before I get into my game preview, I’d like to promote my event for those that are planning on being at or around Jack Trice on Thursday. If you haven’t seen the scene, look no further.

Anyways, I didn’t catch the second half of the Texas-USC game, but I hear it was a classic, and that Texas now looks much better than Texas earlier this season. Iowa State has been statistically better in most games this year, so it should be a very good matchup. The last time we played Texas on a Thursday, Jeremiah George was a Cyclone.

Hey, taking the under last week on Tech worked, neat. Also, Oklahoma State got beat by TCU, so why even play Oklahoma State in late November now. Gee thanks Horned Frogs.
