Cyclones are on fire!

Iowa State is now on the home stretch and looking to finish out the season on a high note. They are ranked 5th in the nation and are rolling full steam ahead. with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State behind in the rearview mirror, the Cyclones are looking to finish out the season unscathed in the conference. Before they do that, they must finish strong and beat the remaining Big 12 teams which 2 of them will be coming to Ames this weekend. Iowa State will first face West Virginia and then the next day goes against Air Force.

West Virginia

The Cyclones will face the Mountaineers on Friday, February 4th at 7 p.m. it will be available to watch on ESPN+. The Mountaineers have a 5-5 record and 0-3 in the conference. They are looking for their first conference win but will be tough to get against these mighty Cyclones.

Summary

West Virginia and Air Force are looking to get a win in Ames, but I don’t believe they will find one here. Iowa State has plenty of guys to get the job done. One thing to look forward to is Sam Schuyler being challenged by Wyatt Hendrickson of Air Force and Michael Wolfgram of West Virginia. It should be good matches for him. another match to watch is Kysen Terukina and Killian Vardinale of West Virginia. Great opportunity to get a win and move up in the rankings. Overall, Iowa State should be able to get both wins.

Predictions

Iowa State 35-6 West Virginia

Iowa State 32-3 Air Force
