Iowa State Struggling in Lubbock, Texas

Iowa State has never had a great track record in Lubbock, Texas with the Cyclones going just 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their past 10 games visiting the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Iowa State’s offense has been downright bad recently, as the team has averaged 67.3 points per game in the past three.

  • Texas Tech is 11-3 SU in their past 14 games at home.
