Oklahoma vs. Iowa State preview:
October was a good month for the Sooners. They didn't lose a game, and come out of with five nice wins. Keep in mind this was a team that everyone had championship hopes for preseason, then subsequently wrote off after a 1-2 start. The Sooners are back, they're No. 1 in the Big 12, and the offense is No. 1 in the nation. Iowa State will be a nice tune-up match before they finish the season versus three tough, ranked opponents.
Iowa State started the season with three losses, won a game, and bookended the win with four more losses. A losing season was pretty much expected this year, and the Cyclones looked decent last week against Kansas State scoring the last 16 points, but they're out of their league in this one.
The Sooners are on a 17 (!) game win streak versus the Cyclones, with the streak beginning all the way back in 1991.
Oklahoma vs. Iowa State prediction:
Oklahoma takes this one. The Cyclones might be able to hang with the Sooners for a quarter or so, but once the Oklahoma gets into a rhythm it's all but over. The Sooners will keep their foot on the gas through the second half and cruise to a six-straight win.
