For the season Klein has completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 1,587 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions while rushing for 1,013 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Iowa St. Cyclones vs. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

The Oklahoma State Cowboys take their unbeaten record and National Championship hopes on the road to tangle with the Iowa State Cyclones Saturday. The Cowboys whacked Texas Tech in week eleven 66-6 while the Cyclones had the week off after dumping Kansas 13-13 in week ten.  The Cowboys are -24.5 point favorites over the Cyclones.

OSU totaled 183 yards on the ground in a two man rushing attack with Hershel Sims leading the way with 109 yards on 13 carries while Joseph Randle adding another 78 yards on 13 totes with three trips to the end zone.

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Iowa St. Cyclones

The struggling Kansas Jayhawks meet the Iowa State Cyclones on the road in a Big 12 match up Saturday. The Jayhawks season of frustration continued with a 43-0 loss to Texas in week nine while the Cyclones hammered Texas Tech 41-7 on the road.  The Cyclones are -14 point favorites over the Jayhawks. The losses keep mounting for Kansas as it’s been obvious for quite some time that this team has huge holes on both sides of the ball. That was readily apparent against Texas with both areas being exposed once again in the team’s poorest performance of the season. Kansas totaled an abysmal 46 total yards of offense, going 1 of 10 on third down and somehow managed three first downs.

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Iowa St. Cyclones

The Iowa State Cyclones started the season with three consecutive wins and it seemed reasonable at the time that Paul Rhoads team was on a collision course with bowl eligibility but since then it’s been three losses with the post season looking like it might be a reach. QB Steele Jantz has 10 touchdown passes but he didn’t have any last week and he was replaced by Jared Barnett. ISU’s best back, Shontrelle Johnson, missed last week’s game and could miss this one as well and while James White isn’t bad, he isn’t quite at the same level as Johnson. Darius Reynolds leads the Read More
