We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s a non conference showdown and also a rivalry game.
In this game the Iowa Hawkeyes make the trip across the state to take on Iowa State Cyclones. Last year when these two teams played the Hawkeyes won 13-3.
The Iowa Hawkeyes have high expectations for this season, and so far they have lived up to the expecations that have been placed on them.
they really haven’t been tested playing Miami of Ohio and Rutgers to start the season but they have done exactly what is expected, they have dominated them.
In their last game against Rutgers the defense really flexed their muscles giving up zero points and that led to the blowout victory.
On offense the Hawkeyes are led by quarterback Nate Stanley who has thrown for 488 yards, six touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
In this game if they can just play a complete game and not fall behind early, they really should have no issue coming away with a win.
Iowa State Cyclones
On the other side of this matchup is the Iowa State Cyclones who have only played one game, and they didn’t look good in it.
They took on FCS level Northern Iowa in the first game of the season, and they really struggled, to move the ball. They did end up scoring 29 points, but don’t let that fool you, the game went to overtime.
At quarterback the Cyclones are led by Block Purdy who threw for 278 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Those stats aren’t terrible, but in this game he is going to need to be a lot better.
On the defensive side this team was good in the first game, but in this game they really need to try and create some turnovers to give the offense a short field.

It’s a rivalry game, and it scares me a little bit, but I still think the play is with the Hawkeyes.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Iowa -1.5
The Cyclones looked so bad in game one, while the Hawkeyes have looked really good. I think Stanley has a good game for the Hawkeyes and that will lead to them winning this game by a touchdown. It’s also a lean to the under.
