Oklahoma State Cowboys vs Iowa State Cyclones Odds, Prediction, and Pick
This week's Friday night football match-up is between two teams who are on complete opposite sides of the College Football world right now. Oklahoma State is flying high, is undefeated, and is sitting at number 2 in the BCS rankings currently. They've been impressive across the board, and are fresh off of a 66-6 absolutely dominating performance against the Texas Tech Red Raiders (who beat Oklahoma by the way). While Texas Tech isn't a top 25 team by any means, they did beat one of the best teams out there, which makes this win for the Cowboys even more impressive. On the other side of the ball on Friday is a team in Iowa State who is hoping that they have finally gotten it figured out. They are sitting at 2-4 in conference play, and their last two games were their two conference wins. One thing that is definitely worth pointing out though, is that these two wins came against the two other bottom teams in the conference currently in the same Texas Tech team as above, and Kansas (who is 0-7 in conference play currently.
Iowa State beat Texas Tech 41-7 in a pretty impressive win, but in the Red Raiders' defense, they were fresh off of their upset against Oklahoma, and that was definitely a let down spot for them. This isn't to take anything away from the Cyclones though, but this Iowa State team just is not an excellent all around team. This week, Iowa State gets Oklahoma State, who is one of the highest scoring offenses out there, and a team whose defense looks to be getting stronger as well. The game will kick off at 8:00pm EST on Friday, and will be played at Iowa State.

Oklahoma State is a team who knows that if they give the BCS ANY reason to think that they don't deserve that number 2 spot, that they will lose it. They are playing to go to the National Championship, and I expect no slip ups from this team before the season ends. They have an excellent quarterback-wide out combination in Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon. Weeden has 31 touchdown passes so far, and Blackmon has 14 of those. I see these two players making a huge impact on the game and giving the Cyclones issues all night. I'm taking the Cowboys in a rout here.

It's always tough to pick a team who is a massive favorite on the road, but this is one that I'm really feeling confident about. Oklahoma State has EVERYTHING to prove here. IF they don't make a statement in these last two games, they could realistically have a chance to lose their spot in the National Championship. I like the Weeden and Blackmon combo to light up the scoreboard on Friday, and their defense to do more than enough. I'm picking the Oklahoma State Cowboys to cover.
