It may be somewhat surprising to see a team that won just three of their nine conference games competing in a bowl game, but that is the case for an Iowa State Cyclones’ team that will limp in to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on the heels of consecutive losses. The Cyclones finished the year just 3-6 in Big 12 play and 6-6 overall, but will get the chance to clinch another big sports betting win against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights to finish above .500

While Iowa State dropped its final two games to nationally ranked opponents, the Scarlet Knights can only blame themselves for not remaining in the BCS hunt as they lost three games to non-ranked opponents, including two by less than a field goal.

Two-point losses to North Carolina and Louisville will leave a stain on Rutgers’ 2011 season, but they still have a chance to finish strong in a bowl game after missing one the year before. The Scarlet Knights will be eager to put their previous effort behind them after committing six turnovers to a visiting Connecticut team that took a 30-point lead in just the third quarter, and they have a couple of key players that can help them do it in wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and linebacker Kahseem Greene. Sanu set the conference record with 109 receptions and his 1,144 yards and seven touchdowns were both second-most in the Big East, while Greene was named co-Big East defensive player of the year after leading the nation’s 12th-ranked scoring defense in tackles.

A double-overtime win over the previously undefeated Oklahoma State Cowboys was the high-point in a season in which the Cyclones appeared to burn out at the end of. Iowa State dropped their final two contests to Oklahoma and Kansas State by a combined 27 points, and will need a win at Yankees Stadium to avoid a fifth losing season in six years. Freshman quarterback Jared Barnett has had some big moments since taking over as the team’s starter in late October, including a season-high 376 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Cowboys, and will need to be at his best against Rutgers.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl Betting: Outlook & Pick

The Scarlet Knights have won four straight bowl games since 2005, and they are favored to earn another against an Iowa State team that has just three in its past 10 bowl appearances. Sanu will be the spark to the Rutgers’ offense, while their 12th-ranked defense looks to bounce back after being hung out to dry in their season-ending loss to the Huskies. The Cyclones are talented enough to at least keep this game close, but they will have trouble adding another improbable upset to their resume for this season as sportsbook underdogs.
