The Iowa State Cyclones will go through a final practice, today, before teeing it up against Pittsburgh tomorrow night in the Insight-dot-com bowl in Phoenix. One of the keys for the Cyclones will be finding a way to run the ball against a Pitt defense that has yielded less than 100-yards on the ground per game. Cyclone running back Ennis Haywood says the Panthers have a number of playmakers on defense.The biggest threat is junior defensive end Bryan Knight who led the team with nine-and-a-half sacks.The Pittsburgh defense is led by coordinator Paul Rhoads, who left the Cyclone staff as the secondary coach to take the job at Pitt. Iowa State quarterback Sage Rosenfels says Rhoads has done a great job with the defense.
