The Kansas Jayhawks will win this Big 12 matchup if

They can tune out the Iowa State home crowd that will host ESPN’s College GameDay

The Kansas Jayhawks have won five straight and nine of their last 10 for head coach Bill Self and they could remain unbeaten over their last half-dozen games if they play the kind of defense they have in holding seven of their last 10 opponents – and each of their last five – to 65 points or less.

Guard Frank Mason leads the Jayhawks in scoring (12.4 ppg), assists (4.2) field goal shooting percentage (48.2) and steals (1.4). The Jayhawks average a modest 70.9points per game (113th) but give up just 62.8 per game defensively.

The Iowa State Cyclones will win this Big 12 matchup if

Can continue to exploit mismatches against junior forward Georges Niang.

Iowa State is powered by Niang who is fifth in the Big 12 and Monte’ Morris who ranks first nationally with a 5.6-to-1 assists-to-turnover ratio. The Cyclones average a stellar 80.4 points per game to rank 15th in the nation and they’re going to need to put as many points on the board as possible against the defensive-minded Kansas – and that means playing to their tempo not the Jayhawks’.

I love the fact that Fred Hoiberg’s team has a different leader in scoring (Georges Niang, 15.2 ppg), assists (Monte Morris, 5.4 apg) and rebounding (Bryce Dejean-Jones (6.1 rpg) and they play their typical’ spread the wealth’ style of ball, they’ll have a good chance of winning this one outright as a likely slight home favorite of about two points.

Will Kansas or Iowa State win this Big 12 matchup?

I know the Kansas Jayhawks have the higher national ranking heading into this telling contest, but I’m going to back the Cyclones to hold it down at home and get the solid, but not overwhelming home win.

The last time these two Big 12 teams met in Iowa, the Cyclones won 94-83 and I think a nearly similar outcome will take place in this matchup.

If the point spread for this matchup stays under three points, I say take the Cyclones to cover, but anything more than that and Kansas cashes in!
