What to Know
After two games on the road, the Iowa State Cyclones are heading back home. The Cyclones and the Baylor Bears will face off in a Big 12 battle at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium. Iowa State will be strutting in after a win while Baylor will be stumbling in from a loss.
When you finish with 312 more yards than your opponent like Iowa State did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. Everything went their way against the Kansas Jayhawks as they made off with a 52-22 victory. That looming 30-point mark stands out as the most commanding margin for Iowa State yet this season. RB Breece Hall continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, rushing for two TDs and 185 yards on 21 carries. Hall put himself on the highlight reel with a 58-yard TD scramble in the fourth quarter.
Iowa State's defense was a presence as well, as it got past Kansas' offensive line to sack the QB five times. It was a group effort with four picking up 1.5 sacks apiece.
Meanwhile, the Bears came up short against the TCU Horned Frogs last week, falling 33-23. QB Charlie Brewer wasn't much of a difference maker for Baylor and threw one interception with a passing completion percentage of only 45.95%.
Iowa State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 14-point margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's contest last week, where they covered a 27.5-point spread.
Iowa State was close but no cigar when the two teams previously met in September of last year as they fell 23-21 to Baylor. Maybe the Cyclones will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
