Iowa State has another tough assignment this week, much tougher than last week. This week #10 ranked Utah Utes come to town looking to dominate and destroy the Cyclones. But hopefully our beloved Cyclones will blindside the Utes and come away with the win. This week game will be a test for both teams, and shockingly Iowa State has the upper hand in my opinion.
For one thing Utah is coming off a bye week, which either can be a good thing or a bad thing, it just depends. Also Utah hasn’t really face a tough opponent since their first game of the season, which was against Pittsburgh. Utah escape with a 24-27 overtime victory but all the rest of their games this season they have won by a big margin. I think the only was Utah will win this game if they run the ball instead of passing the ball which would be different what they are use to so far because they haven’t been able to produce a run game so far.
For Iowa State to walk away wit the win, it will have to a big team effort on both sides of the ball. The offense will have to coming out of the gates swinging by perhaps mixing the plays up because base on last week’s win Utah will most likely will be ready to stop the run game. The defense will need to shut down the Utah offense but they might have it easy since Utah really doesn”t have a run game and they might not want to pass the ball a lot because they don’t want Iowa State to intercept and add more to their 8 all ready this season.
I think this game between Iowa State and Utah should be a fun and close game to watch, it should be interesting to see who comes on top and how it will unfold. I think it could be a very close game and Iowa State might escape by a last second play, just to make the victory more thrilling and fun.
