Iowa State (3-3, 2-2) returns from its bye week as a 5.5-point favorite at home against Texas Tech (5-2, 3-1).

Here are predictions, pregame links and TV, radio and streaming details.

Predictions

Marc Morehouse — Iowa State over Ryan Gosling Tech (it’s funny because the Texas Tech coach looks a little like Ryan Gosling). Well, maybe “funny” is stretching it. Iowa State 24, Texas Tech 21

Mike Hlas — Four of Iowa State’s final six games are against teams from Texas. So are all three of East Texas Baptist’s remaining games. Our Tigers will whip Sul Ross State today. Iowa State 24, Texas Tech 21

Jeff Johnson — I’m going to rush the field after this one. What? Too soon? Iowa State 31, Texas Tech 27

Beth Malicki — I love when people randomly ask my opinion about college football due to my success in these Pick ‘Ems. Then watching their horror when I respond with, “I like (insert team here), but mostly for their costumes.” Iowa State 33, Texas Tech 28

Ben Visser — The last time Texas Tech came to Ames, Matt Campbell’s team handed it a 66-10 beatdown. Campbell has never lost to the Red Raiders. Iowa State 34, Texas Tech 21

Todd Brommelkamp — Jamie Pollard can keep his checkbook safely tucked away after this one. David Montgomery will handle all ISU’s rushing today. Iowa State 37, Texas Tech 20
