The Iowa State Cyclones will leave next Tuesday for the December 31st Houston Bowl matchup with T-C-U. With final exams out of the way the practice scheduled picked up this week and defensive back LaMarcus Hicks says the Cyclones are getting anxious to play a game. Hicks says they just started having consecutive practices, but he says they’ve been good and focused practices.
Hick says they’re starting to focus on the game and not worried about their classes. He says they just want to go and play good football and win the game. Coach Dan McCarney is giving his players a few days off for Christmas before the team leaves next week.
