The Iowa State Cyclones host Oklahoma on Saturday in Big 12 action. The Sooners came into the hoping to contend for a national championship but those hopes ended after last week’s loss to Notre Dame.
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says the Sooners lost to two undefeated teams and they still have an explosive offense and are very good. He say they will have to play very well to stay in the stadium with them.
Rhoads says it woud be a big victory for the program, especially in front of a home crowd that has been very supportive this season. He says they were happy to deliver a homecoming victory after losing the two previous home games.
The Iowa Hawkeyes look to snap a two-game losing streak with a visit to Indiana. For the second straight week the Hawks have been forced to prepare face two quarterbacks. With Tre Roberson injured the Hoosiers have been using Nate Sudfeld and Cam Coffman.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says both quarterbacks will run the football, but when they run they will be looking to throw the ball, compared to last week, where the Northwestern quarterback was running all the way.
The Iowa defense has been shredded the past two weeks and Ferentz says that unit faces another tough test as he says Indiana has really good skill players who are playing well, especially on the line.
