Oklahoma State will face a ranked opponent for a second straight week when they visit No. 23 Iowa State on Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.
The Cowboys (4-3, 1-3 Big 12) is coming off a 45-27 homecoming loss against undefeated Baylor. OSU running back Chuba Hubbard did his part with 171 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries to increase his FBS-leading rushing total to 1,625 yards. The Canadian is the only back in the country to surpass 1,000 yards this season.
OSU’s defense was exposed with big play after big play as Baylor rallied from a 13-10 halftime deficit to hand the Cowboys their third loss in four Big 12 matchups.
Iowa State (5-2, 3-1), meanwhile, is back in the AP Top 25 poll after a 34-24 win last week at Texas Tech. It was the Cyclones’ third straight victory with quarterback Brock Purdy lighting up the box score with 308 passing yards and three scores in the first half then finished with 378 yards. Freshman running back Breece Hall rushed for a career-high 183 yards and two touchdowns and 256 all-purpose yards against the Red Raiders.
Cyclones head coach Matt Campbell guided the Cyclones to a 48-42 win over OSU to snap a six-game skid against the Cowboys. ISU hasn’t won at home in the series since 2011, a 37-31 victory over then-No. 2 OSU.
