The Iowa State Cyclones picked up a rebound win over the Texas Longhorns last week, 30-7. That’s four wins in the last five games now for the Cyclones as they look to improve their standings prior to bowl season.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders took a beating from the Oklahoma Sooners last week, losing 52-21. Texas Tech has lost three of their last four games, and will fight to make an appearance in a bowl game this season. With Oklahoma State and Baylor on deck after Iowa State, there’s no guarantee of the Red Raiders playing in December.

Iowa State vs. Texas Tech Prediction and Pick

If Texas Tech wants to make a bowl game they are going to need a win, and this game may be their last chance with two stronger teams waiting for them on the schedule.

Both of these offenses line up very closely on paper. Statistically, it’s hard to find two opponent offenses closer than these two teams have played. But, on defense, it’s night and day. 

Texas Tech has allowed 33 points per game, Iowa State has only allowed 18.2. The Red Raiders defense is averaging 402 yards against, while the Cyclones have been allowing just 282 yards. 

Texas Tech is going to struggle to move the ball on one side, and fail to stop it on the other. Their bowl game dreams will go down the drain this week against Iowa State.
