The Iowa State Cyclones look for their first Big 12 victory when they visit Kansas State. The Wildcats have been using two quarterbacks in Jake Waters and Daniel Sams and while Cyclone coach Paul Rhoads says they have different strengths the offense remains the same. “It’s not like you’ve got a two-sided game plan, ” Rhoads says.
K-State is 3-4 on the season and Rhoads says the Wildcat defense is making progress. He says the defense doesn’t gamble, they line up to take away your strengths and you have to manufacture some things — something he admits has not been their strength. “We’re going to have to figure out first-down opportunities, especially starting halves and getting series started,” Rhoads says.
Sam Richardson is expected to start at quarterback but Grant Rohach is ready if called upon. Rhoads says ISU needs more production out of that spot. Rhoads says they want to see the quarterback making the right decisions, which is the first thing he looks at, and then throwing accuracy.
Iowa State is 1-6.
