Iowa State coach Dan McCarney says the Cyclones need a better ground game in Saturday’s game at Oklahoma State. The Cyclones managed only 33-yards on the groun in a loss to Nebraska and McCarney says that’s a perfect example of what happens to a team that does not run the ball well and does not stop the run. He says you’ll rarely win a ballgame with that type of disparity in rushing.McCarney is concerned by Oklahoma State’s run defense which ranks 16th nationally. He says they haven’t allowed a 100 yard rusher in five games.With Tony Lindsay sidelined, the Cowboys will play freshman Aso Pogi at quarterback. McCarney says Pogi has gained some experience this season playing several plays in the last few weeks.With a victory, the Cyclones will have five in the win column and will be just one victory short of earning that elusive winning season and being bowl eligible. McCarney says it’s something he stresses with his team.
