Top Week 8 college football expert predictions
Oklahoma State running back Jaylen Warren has burst onto the scene in the Big 12, rushing for 705 yards and six touchdowns. He ran wild in a 32-24 win over Texas last week, finishing with 193 rushing yards on 33 carries. The Cowboys have now knocked off three ranked teams this season and are undefeated coming into this matchup.
Iowa State has lost to the top two teams it has faced (Iowa, Baylor) this year. The Cyclones rank third nationally in total defense, but they have not played the best offensive teams in the conference. Oklahoma State has covered the spread in four of its last five games this year and has won eight of its last nine contests against Iowa State.
"This game has all of the makings of an old-school slugfest," Sallee told SportsLine. "A full touchdown spread seems a bit aggressive here."
