Iowa State Wary of Upset-Minded Kansas


November 4th, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State went on the road last week as a double-digit underdog that hadn’t won a Big 12 game – and won by 34 points. Kansas hits the road this week as a double-digit underdog that hasn’t won a Big 12 game.  On Saturday, the Jayhawks (2-6, 0-5 Big 12) face Iowa State, the one team that knows how dangerous a supposedly weaker team can be in this league.  Iowa State (4-4, 1-4) stunned the Big 12 by throttling Texas Tech 41-7 in Lubbock last week. The Cyclones insist they’re on guard against letting Kansas (2-6, 0-5) pull off a similar feat.  The Jayhawks have lost six straight and gained just 46 yards in a 43-0 loss at Texas last week.
