The Iowa State defense is getting ready for a little bit of everything from Minnesota. The Cyclones and Gophers collide on Thursday afternoon in the Insight Bowl in Tempe, Arizona.
I.S.U. defensive coordinator Wally Burnham says they will run a lot of different formations and they will want to throw the football, unless they decide they can run it. He says the Minnesota offensive line will be the biggest they have gone up against.
Burnham says they have worked on a lot of fundamentals since the regular season ended and he has seen progress. He says they are beginning to play with better leverage and better football position, and he says the young guys are getting better at underneath pass coverage.
