    The Iowa State Cyclones have lost six games in a row, including a 21-17 setback to the TCU Horned Frogs as seven-point home underdogs last Saturday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Cyclones are 3-0 against the spread as underdogs of 21.5 to 31 points, with the UNDER cashing in on each of those affairs.

    The Oklahoma Sooners were handed their second loss of the 2013 campaign last time out, as they dropped a 41-12 decision to the Baylor Bears on Nov. 7 as 17-point road underdogs.

    College football handicappers will find that the Sooners have won 78 of 79 games under Stoops when scoring 40 or more points.
