Iowa State Struggling to Score
The Iowa State Cyclones are not resembling a typical Big 12 Conference team this season, as they have little offense. Iowa State is scoring 23 points per game and is averaging 106 rush yards per game in 2022.
Quarterback Hunter Dekkers has thrown for 1,514 yards this season and 11 touchdowns, but he also has six interceptions. The Cyclones are going to have to play nearly perfectly on offense, and they have to hit on some big plays.
Iowa State has been a great defensive team, as it is allowing 13.7 points per game. The Cyclones haven’t faced an offense like Texas yet, though, and this will be a difficult test.
Texas Can Take it to Another Level
It’s been an interesting season for the Texas Longhorns, but they now have Quinn Ewers back and healthy at the quarterback position. Ewers was terrific in the blowout win over Oklahoma and said, “I know all these guys were pretty excited, but growing up a fan, I always wanted to play in this one.”
Bijan Robinson is also having a great year for the Longhorns, as he has racked up 645 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. Texas just has so many weapons on offense that they are going to be difficult to stop when they have the ball.
The Longhorns haven’t been great on defense, but that unit shut out Oklahoma on Saturday. As long as Texas is solid on defense, then the offense should be able to take over the game.

Iowa State vs Longhorns Prediction
Iowa State began the year by shutting teams down with its defense, but that unit has started to give up more yards and points. That’s a problem for the Cyclones, as this team can’t keep up on offense.
Texas struggled without Ewers but is coming into this game with momentum after the big win in Week 6. The Longhorns are pretty clearly the best overall team in this matchup, and they will blow this game wide open at home.
Taking the Texas Longhorns at -17.0 at BetUS Sportsbook is the right play in this matchup.
