With no game this week the Iowa State Cyclones can take some extra time to celebrate Saturday’s win over Northern Illinois. The Cyclones roared back from a two touchdown deficit in the third quarter to beat the Huskies 48-41. ISU will take a 2-1 record into the Big-12 opener at Oklahoma State. Cyclone coach Dan McCarney says they have a lot of work to do to get ready for conference play and hope to get several injured players back. McCarney’s team managed to win despite a sub-par day from the defense, by he says the most important thing is that they won. Austin Flynn came off the bench and had a strong second half in the comeback, including a touchdown pass and touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He says he knew all along he’d have to come in a produce when he had the chance. Flynn says he expects the rotation with Bret Meyer to continue. He says they both will continue competing and that will help the team continue to get better.
