Prediction:

The Cyclones always seem to play Kansas tough and I'm betting on that happening again here. Kansas struggled Saturday and this is a quick turnaround to sort things out. Iowa State is top 20 nationally in both adjusted efficiency on offense and defense, while the Jayhawks are only 29th in adjusted offensive efficiency. I'm going to bet on Iowa State being a thorn in Kansas' side yet again.
