Big Monday could turn into a big blowout.
Kansas sticks around Allen Fieldhouse for a Big Monday matchup with the Iowa State Cyclones.
Kansas is the #3 team in the country in the AP Poll, while Iowa State comes in unranked. KenPom currently has KU at #1 and ISU at #71, which makes the Cyclones the highest-rated team with a losing record. (#31 Minnesota is currently .500.) The Jayhawks are coming off an 87-70 home win over Oklahoma while the ‘Clones are coming off an impressive an 81-52 home win in Ames against a laughable Texas Longhorns squad.
Kansas leads the all-time series with Iowa State 183-66, which includes a 53-10 mark inside Allen Fieldhouse. The most recent meeting between these two programs was a 79-53 Kansas victory in Ames back in January in a game that KU led by 20 at halftime.
Here are the essentials:
(3) Kansas: 22-3, 11-1
Iowa State: 11-14, 4-8
Line: KU -16.5
