Offense: The fate of the Cyclones O will rest on their ability to fill in the holes on the line. QB Brock Purdy and RB Breece Hall return from a unit that spit out 32+ ppg last year. the top two WRs are gone, but if that line comes together this will be among the Big 12's best.
Defense: The D will be solid in 2020, but will miss Mike Rose and Greg Ellsworth
Overall: The Cyclones will be better overall, but not enough so to be amongst the conference's elite.
Projected 2020 Record: 8-4
