Iowa State looking to bounce back against Oklahoma State

No. 19 Oklahoma State will open the second half of the season unsettled at quarterback and with an offense that's been somewhat average of late.

What a perfect time to play Iowa State.

The Cyclones (1-5, 0-3 Big 12) are coming off the worst loss in school history, a 71-7 shellacking at No. 6 Baylor.

They've given up 113 points since a heartbreaking one-point loss to Texas and are on pace for their worst finish in the five-year tenure of coach Paul Rhoads.

Still, the Cowboys (5-1, 2-1) aren't nearly as certain at quarterback as they'd like to be by now.

Oklahoma State likely won't let anyone know if J.W. Walsh or Clint Chelf will start on Saturday.

Chelf relieved a turnover-prone Walsh in last week's win over TCU.
