IUPUI @ Iowa State
What to Know
The IUPUI Jaguars and the Iowa State Cyclones will face off at 8 p.m. ET November 7th at James H. Hilton Coliseum to kick off their 2022 seasons. Returning after a rocky 2-26 year, IUPUI is aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Iowa State went 22-13 last season and got to the Sweet Sixteen before losing to the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes 70-56.
Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Jaguars ranked 356th worst with respect to turnovers per game last season, where the squad accrued 16.6 on average (bottom 103%). To make matters even worse for IUPUI, Iowa State was 13th best (top 4%) in takeaways, finishing the 2021-2022 season with 16.6 on average.
Since the experts predict a defeat, IUPUI will need to dig deep. Perhaps they'll be able to flip the script and come out with a big win.
