The Texas A&M Aggies and the Iowa State Cyclones continued their difficult seasons last week with home conference losses. Neither team has captured a Big 12 win this season, but at least one club will walk away with that prize when the two teams square off at 7:00pm ET at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, IA. College football betting odds at SBGglobal.com would indicate that that prestigious honor might fall to Iowa State as they are a -3 home favorite.
Texas A&M put together a nice first half last week against the Texas Tech Red Raiders but they could not sustain their effort into the third quarter. Tech eventually pulled away from Mike Sherman's Aggies , winning 43-25. A&M, who has had a difficult time shutting down opposing ground games this season (allowing 207.3 yards rushing per game), was burned by the Red Raiders for 450 yards through the air.
Iowa State, after playing a competitive game against the Kansas Jayhawks, has been smoked in their last two outings. The Baylor Bears touched up the Cyclones by a score 38-10 on the road and then the Nebraska Cornhuskers drilled them 35-7 in Ames last weekend. The Cyclones and their second year coach, Gene Chizik , are probably looking forward to the beleaguered Aggies arrival as they look to get a win on homecoming.
