This week’s game against Texas might be just what the doctor order for the Cyclones. I feel this game will be a big confidence booster for the team if they can come out with a win or make it a very close game. The Longhorns are to looks run the ball. They are very good success with that against Nebraska last week.
Iowa State my have to follow suite and stick to the run game against the Longhorn defenses. The offense may not what to pass as much because I feel the Texas defense is like the Iowa State defense, which is get at defending the pass and ok against the run. Overall I think these two teams are mirror images of each other except for the fact that Texas has had a little more success than the Iowa State.
I feel if Iowa State comes out running and use the play action past option once in awhile, I think they can get a early lead. If they score at least 3 touchdowns and maintain their lead and stop the Longhorns. They could probably pull out a close victory. My guess is 27-20 Iowa State over Texas……Go Cyclones.
