The Iowa State Cyclones have a well deserved week off before hosting Texas Tech on October 12th. The Cyclones are 5-1 after Saturday’s cruise past Nebraska and coach Dan McCarney feels his team could use some rest. McCarney says he’s got a number of guys who are “banged up” a little right now, including Luke Vander Sanden, who had a broken bone in his leg earlier this season, then on Saturday broke a bone in his other leg. He’ll have surgery on the leg tomorrow. McCarney does not believe the off week will slow their momentum. McCarney says his team is playing real good football in all phases, but with a 13-game season — three games short of an N-F-L regular season — McCarney says a player’s body and mind can only take so many hits and McCarney believes the players need some time off. The Cyclones will return to practice on Wednesday.
