The Iowa State Cyclones will open the Big 12 race this weekend on the road at 24th rated Oklahoma State. The Cyclones are 2-1 and did not play last weekend. I-S-U coach Dan McCarney says the time off has allowed some of the injured Cyclones to return. He says lineman Luke Vandersanden is back, and it’s still day-to-day for Cephus Johnson and kicker Tony Yelk. Yelk’s future may be the most critical. The kicking game has struggled while has been out with a leg injury. McCarney calls it one of the real weaknesses on the team as they’re last in the conference in P-A-T’s and field goals made. He says they’ve worked hard on the kicking game in the off week and are continuing to evaluate everyone to determine a starter for this week.
