Iowa State Cyclones
Iowa State junior RB David Montgomery (arm) has been practicing this week. Montgomery (5'11/216) is considered questionable for Saturday's showdown with Oklahoma State as he continues his rehab from an arm injury sustained against TCU over the weekend. We'll have to wait until later in the practice week -- perhaps even up until kickoff -- to know definitively whether the junior will be able to suit up on Saturday. For what it's worth, QB coach Joel Gordon said that he does expect Montgomery to be ready for Saturday.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State redshirt senior QB Taylor Cornelius completed 15-of-20 passes for 312 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 48-28 win over Kansas. This was Cornelius' first-career four TD game against an FBS opponent. It was nice to see after he'd totaled three total in the previous three games combined. Next week, OSU hosts Iowa State.
The Cyclones are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus the Cowboys in Stillwater.
The home team is 9-3 against the spread in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.
Assuming the Cowboys drag the Cyclones into a shootout, they should run away with this one. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Zeb Noland will start again for the Cyclones and while he has completed 63.9 percent of his passes thus far with a 4:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio, TCU also held him to just 79 yards passing last week. I just don’t see how ISU keeps pace this afternoon.
