Result:
LOSS

The Bears thought they had bridged the gap to the big-boys in the Big-12, but were destroyed at home by Oklahoma 49-17 last week. All the talk of the reborn Bears team, and standout Freshman QB Robert Griffin, had to take a back seat last week. But, the public still loves this team (67% on them this week). As confident as they had to be after a close loss vs. Connecticut, they have to now be wondering and doubting. The hype just hasn't translated into the win column. The Cyclones may be just the opposite - severely underrated. They almost beat Kansas, losing by just 2, and lost to a very good UNLV team in OT. They also held their own vs. a good Iowa team. They are going against a team that is more on their level here, that must also be full of doubt right now, and emotionally drained after thinking they could give OU a game. The Cyclones are in a good spot here, and could steal the win. I expect them to at least hang around as they have all year in what has the makings of a field-goal game.
