Iowa State is 2-2, and has lost a number of key players to injury and faces top-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday. Cyclone coach Dan McCarney does not want any sympathy, though. McCarney says his players should relish the chance to take on the nation’s top ranked team. He says that’s why he came to I-S-U and why the players came to the school McCarney says they don’t think they’re dead even though the have a couple of losses. McCarney says the Cyclone’s are looking ahead and aren’t feeling sorry for themselves. Oklahoma is 4-0 and has been idle since a 59-24 win over U-C-L-A. In that game the Sooners Antonio Perkins set an N-C-A-A record by returning three punts for touchdowns. McCarney says if he returns one, they won’t kick to him the next time, and he says they won’t kick it straight to him in the first place.
