On the week of their homecoming, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will host the Iowa State Cyclones, looking for revenge for their late-season loss to them back in 2011. Homecoming is always a big deal in Stillwater, and the fact that Iowa State is coming to town just adds to the excitement.
After losing a close game to Texas and playing a poor game at Kansas last week, the Cowboys will face perhaps their toughest test of the season with Iowa State. The Cyclones play solid defense, something that is rare in the Big 12, and they can put points on the board when given the opportunity.
If the Cowboys have a similar game to the one they had last week in Lawrence, they will undoubtedly lose to the Cyclones. Iowa State is looking to rebound after pushing Big 12 leader Kansas State to the brink last week and will be ready to give this Cowboys team all it wants.
Each of these teams is currently in a huge logjam in the middle of the Big 12 race. A win for either would be a step toward the top.
