The fans at Jones AT&T Stadium will be treated to a game between the Iowa State Cyclones and the Texas Tech Red Raiders when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT IOWA STATE (4-2, 2-1 Big 12): Fifth-year senior quarterback Kyle Kempt won his first two starts in place of junior Jacob Park (health issues) and has completed 70.5 percent of his passes for 465 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Sophomore David Montgomery has rushed for 478 yards and eight TDs, while senior wideout Allen Lazard (30 receptions, 350 yards in 2017) has 200 career catches – one of three current FBS players to reach the plateau. Senior free safety Kamari Cotton-Moya (team-high three interceptions) and junior linebacker Marcel Spears Jr. (52 tackles, two forced fumbles) complement Lanning on the defensive side.

ABOUT TEXAS TECH (4-2, 1-2): Fifth-year senior quarterback Nic Shimonek has recorded five 300-yard passing performances while completing 70.1 percent of his attempts for 2,134 yards and 18 touchdowns against just four interceptions. Senior Justin Stockton (481 rushing yards) has provided a ground presence while junior wideout Keke Coutee is enjoying a standout campaign with 45 catches for 672 yards and six scores. Junior weak-side linebacker Dakota Allen (42 tackles, team-leading two interceptions) is the standout of a defensive unit that ranks sixth nationally in turnover margin (plus-9) while racking up 15 takeaways (eight interceptions, seven fumbles).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Red Raiders as 7-point favorites versus the Cyclones, while the game’s total is sitting at 68 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

Texas Tech certainly hasn’t forgotten what happened the last time it saw Iowa State jerseys and seeks a much different result when it hosts the Cyclones on Saturday in Big 12 play. Iowa State manhandled Texas Tech 66-10 in a stunning beatdown last season, which represented the most points scored by the Cyclones since a 69-0 victory over Colorado State in 1980.

Iowa State’s Joel Lanning tied the school record with five rushing touchdowns in last season’s victory, and while the senior still receives playing time at quarterback, his move to middle linebacker has been a success as he leads the team with 64 tackles – including six for losses. Lanning’s two-way play fueled the Cyclones’ stunning upset of then-No. 3 Oklahoma on Oct. 7, and he recorded 2.5 tackles for losses when the defense allowed just 106 yards in last Saturday’s 45-0 rout of Kansas. Texas Tech averages 44.8 points per game and is looking to bounce back from a 46-35 loss to West Virginia in which the Mountaineers scored the final 29 points in a torrid comeback. “I think we’re fortunate that the team that we’re playing this Saturday demolished us last year,” Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said of moving forward at a press conference. “Anybody that was on that sideline and on this roster that was a part of that, that’s not one you forget.”

Texas Tech was a 46-35 loser in its last match on the road against Mountaineers. They failed to cover the +5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 81 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Iowa State was a 45-0 winner at home against Jayhawks. They covered the -23-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (45) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.
