The Iowa State Cyclones prepare for their regular season finale this weekend when they visit Missouri. The Cyclones are 6-5 after a 17-10 win over Colorado in their home finale.
Cyclone coach Paul Rhoads says they’re excited to head into the final game with an opportunity to play for a winning record, but he says it will take a great effort against a good team. I.S.U. is bowl eligible after the Colorado win and would lock up a bowl trip with a victory this week.
Rhoads says he has not even considered the possibilities as they have enough to do in preparing for Missouri. A big key this season has been a defense that has generated turnovers and done a good job of keeping opponents out of the endzone. He says those two things have helped as he says when you create turnovers and keep people out of the endzone, then you have a chance in any game.
Rhoads says he is most happy for the older players that have been through two coaching changes. He says it is fun to see the faces of the players and see them work and enjoy the rewards of the hard work.
Missouri is 6-4.
