After avoiding an upset bid by UNI the Iowa State Cyclone now focus their attention on this weekend’s game against Nebraska. Iowa State coach Dan McCarney says it’s the fourth ranked team in four weeks and says they’re in the middle of a very tough part of the schedule. McCarney says he thinks their best game is still inside of them and hopefully they can bring it out.
McCarney has made some line-up changes in the secondary after the Panther offense rolled up 334 yards. He says they’re not getting good enough play at safety he’s starting Steve Johnson to safety. McCarney says the safety has to be a good consistent, solid, strong tackler.
Iowa State is giving up around 250 yards of passing per game. McCarney says one of the things that’s impacted that stat is missed tackles. McCarney says they’ve had far too many missed tackles.
Iowa State has won all three home games this season and all three have gone down to the wire. He says they would have liked to make it a little more relaxed, but he says a win is a win. McCarney says the Cyclones have been too inconsistent this season and that must change. He says the team understands that there are a lot of rewards out there and they have to work hard to get them.
