Iowa State coach Dan McCarney says cutting down on turnovers has helped the Cyclones get back to their winning ways. After suffering through a mistake-filled three game losing streak ISU is now 5-3 after a 42-14 rout of Texas A@M.
McCarney says nothing is more devastating then getting into position to score and then taking points off the board as you turn the ball over. McCarney says the mistakes are magnified when they come near the goal line. He says it doesn’t matter who you are, or who you’re playing, when you turn the ball over inside the five yard line, “your chances are slim and none.”
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder says the Iowa State team his Wildcats will play this weekend is better than the team that earned a share of the Big-12 North Division title in 2004. He says they’re more experienced across the board on offense and defense.
Snyder says the Cyclones could be 8-0 heading into this game and they looked like it at A@M. He says with three loses with close scores that means his team will have its hands full. Snyder says his team hasn’t been great on the road this season and will have to be more disciplined to play well on the road.
The Wildcats are 4-4 overall and 1-4 in the Big Twelve.
