The Iowa State Cyclones host Nebraska in the Big-12. Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez is questionable after suffering a sprained ankle in last week’s victory over Missouri.
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says Nebraska will have a productive offense regardless of which quarterback is playing and they will have to try and control it the best they can to stay in the game. At 3-2 the Cyclones would claim the Big-12 North title by winning their final three games but Rhoads says there only concern is playing well against Nebraska.
Rhoads says they’re trying to be a better football team this year than they were last year. He says they’ve played three top 10 teams this year and have been beaten soundly, so they are trying to stay in the game and give the fans something to cheer about in the fourth quarter.
Roy Helu jr. set a Nebraska single game record last week with 307 yards of rushing. Rhoads says Helu runs hard and runs north and south and makes his yards fast and he is physical and violent as a back.
I.S.U. is 5-4 overall.
