Iowa State and Baylor are in similar situations as they prepare for this weekend’s matchup in Ames. Both teams are 3-1 after heart breaking losses on the road in overtime. Baylor lost to Texas A@M and Iowa State fell in double overtime at Nebraska. I-S-U coach Dan McCarney says both teams put themselves in position to get a great road victory, but came up short. McCarney is concerned about the Cyclones’ running game. Starting running back Stevie Hicks carried only once against the Huskers as he still battles injury and for the game the Cyclones managed only 57 yards on the ground. He says they could go into the fifth game with their third tailback. He says they want balance and don’t want to have to depend on the pass.Baylor coach Guy Morris says McCarney will make sure the Cyclones bounce back from Saturday’s loss. Morris says I-S-U is a good football team and says his team will have to score when it gets in the red zone. Morris says how these teams respond may determine the outcome on Saturday. He says whoever gets back on their feet the quickest and has a good week of practice will win the game.
