What you need to know about Iowa State

Iowa State fell 14-11 to the Kansas Jayhawks last timeout. Quarterback Hunter Dekkers struggled in the loss as he turned the ball over twice (one interception and one fumble). However, the Iowa State defense was able to hold a high-powered Kansas offense to just 213 yards on the day.

The Jayhawks had been averaging 474 yards of total offense and 48.5 points per game in their four prior contests. O'Rien Vance had six tackles, a tackle for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the win. Vance leads the team in tackles (28), tackles for loss (4.5) and forced fumbles (3) this season and he'll need to be a disruptive force against a run-heavy Kansas State attack.

What you need to know about Kansas State

Kansas State has multiple key factors on its side heading into this game, with one of them being recent form. The Wildcats pulled off a 41-34 upset at then-No. 6 Oklahoma two weeks ago as 13.5-point underdogs before taking care of business in a 37-28 win over Texas Tech last week. They have won and covered the spread in five of their last six games dating back to the end of last season.

Iowa State is trending in the opposite direction following back-to-back losses against then-No. 17 Baylor and Kansas, despite being favored in both games. The Cyclones have covered the spread four times in their last 12 games, and they are averaging just 15 points per game during conference play. Their lack of offense is going to make it difficult for them to keep pace with Kansas State quarterback Adrian Martinez, who has already gone over 1,000 total yards this season.
