Iowa State lost an important game to Oklahoma State last week. It was close so there could be a letdown.
In a nice scheduling twist they get Kansas this week. They are on the road but Kansas is like the free middle square on the bingo card.
The Jayhawks are staring down what looks to be a winless season.
Iowa State Cyclones
Iowa State lost last week, a close game on the road that could have gone either way. The loss puts them in a tougher spot to reach the B12 title game for sure.
The loss to OSU was 24-21 so it looks like the defense played pretty well and the offense sputtered. The Cowboys are strong on defense though.
RB Breece Hall was the best player on the field from either side last week. He has been impressive all season long but this was his best game with a season high 185 yards on just 20 carries. He has not rushed for less than 103 yards in a game this season.
Brock Purdy is supposed to be the steady hand at QB but he has struggled more than expected. The running game should make things easier for him but at the same time, he does not have a ton to work with.
The defense gave up 461 yards to Oklahoma State. Look for them to drop that in half against Kansas.
Kansas lost by 41 points to rival K-State last week. That was their worst loss of the season. At home this week not much is likely to change.
Not helping is the fact that Pooka Williams, their best player has decided to sit out the rest of the season. He was the only player on offense that you really had to worry about.
The 55 points they gave up to Kansas State were a season-high too. They might not give up that many this week but it won’t be because of any real improvement.
Kansas is the worst Power 5 team this season and it might not even be close with Arkansas showing so much improvement.

Kansas is a bad team but any time you give up a full four touchdowns you have to at least take a beat before hitting it.

If they want Breece Hall to get some Heisman pub this is the week to put up some gaudy numbers. I don’t see how they really slow the guy down.
That does not mean the offense is plodding either, as he is just as likely to score from 80 yards out as he is from inside the red zone.
