The annual battle for Hawkeye State bragging rights takes place when Iowa and Iowa State meet at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Hawkeyes once won 15 in a row in this rivalry, but Iowa State has actually won nine of the last 16 meetings, and two of the last three.
Iowa is 2-0 SU but 0-2 ATS this season, failing to cover 17-point spreads against both Northern Iowa and Ball State. In fact, the Hawkeyes needed two touchdowns in the last three minutes just to beat the Cardinals. The Cyclones, meanwhile, are 0-2 SU, 1-1 ATS, after getting upset by North Dakota State, then almost upsetting Kansas State last week.
The Iowa State Cyclones will look to cover ATS vs their hosts on Saturday, as they are 1-1 ATS versus the spread this season, while the Iowa Hawkeyes are 0-2 ATS. Iowa State is 1-1 against the over under total, while Iowa is 1-1 versus the number.
