The Mountaineers suffered their second defeat of the season, losing 56-28 as a 3.5-point home underdog versus Oklahoma last Saturday. West Virginia was sloppy throughout and despite making a fierce rally in the second half, its defense couldn't come up with a big stop in the closing minutes to get the ball back and potentially get closer to the Sooners. The Mountaineers are now 8-2 overall and just 4-6 against the spread this season.

The Cyclones absolutely embarrassed Texas Tech last Saturday, blasting the Red Raiders 66-10 as a 3.5-point home underdog. That win improved Iowa State's record to 3-8 on the year and the Cyclones are 7-4 against the spread. In fact, they've covered the number in three of their last four games overall and in seven of their last nine.

OUR PREDICTION: It's hard to figure where WVU's head is going to be after that highly disappointing performance versus Oklahoma last Saturday. That was essentially the Mountaineers' season and they saved their worst performance for their biggest game of the year. Iowa State, meanwhile, has been competitive in most of its games and is flying high after back-to-back wins over Kansas and Texas Tech. This is a nice spot to take the home underdog against what will very likely be an un-motivated WVU team.
