Baylor Bears vs Iowa State Cyclones, Odds, Prediction, and Pick
The 2011 College Football season has been one of the most exciting, and up and down seasons in recent history. We've seen multiple upsets, and many teams moving around inside of the top 10 rankings. One team that has been playing very well this season though is the Baylor Bears. The Bears are currently sitting at 3-1, and are coming off of a tough loss against the Kansas State Wildcats. They were involved in that big time opening night game against TCU in which they won 50-48 with a late field goal. Baylor has been led by the incredible early season play of quarterback Robert Griffin, who has competed 82.3% of his passes for 1308 yards, 18 touchdowns, and only 1 interception. Griffin is currently a Heisman front runner, and is one of the best quarterbacks in the country.
On the other side we have the Iowa State Cyclones who are 3-1, but their first real test came last week at home against the Texas Longhorns. The Cyclones only loss came in that game, as they were beaten 37-14. Iowa State seems to live and die by quarterback Steele Jantz, who has 7 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, and their rushing game is between good and bad as well. Iowa State will need a strong performance from Jantz in order to knock off this strong Baylor team.

You can only say good things about Baylor so far this season, and especially their quarterback Robert Griffin. One thing that people overlook is how great their running game has been as well this year. Baylor's combination of their ability to run and pass will be tough for Iowa State to stop, and I also think that they will struggle to shut down wide out Kendall Wright. Wright has 40 receptions through 4 games, and has 621 yards and 7 touchdowns as well. Iowa State is going to be in for a tough game in this one, and I see Baylor winning by three touchdowns here.

Iowa State lost by more than 15 at home against the Longhorns, and I'd be shocked if the Bears aren't to bounce back at home after their tough loss and beat the Cyclones by more than Texas did. This is also a night game which will draw in quite a crowd for the home team here, and I think that the home field advantage will play a role as well. I'm picking the Baylor Bears to cover here.
