IOWA ST. (-10.0) 27 Army 17

Over/Under Total: 46.5
04:00 PM Pacific Time Saturday, Sep-26

Army's option offense was derailed last week by 6 fumbles and even though they lost just one of them, the rest put the Cadets in poor down and distance situations that stalled drives.

Army didn't play their best against Ball State last week, but if they play their normal game today they should be fairly competitive, as the Cyclones have been just average offensively and bad on defense in allowing 5.7 yppl to teams that would combine to average just 4.9 yppl against an average defensive team.

Army's option running attack should work fairly well against a Cyclones' defensive front that's allowed 5.3 yards per rushing play but my math model favor Iowa State by 10 points, which is right on the number.
