As for controllable things, get the wide receivers and running backs comfortable early and often. The opener being cancelled last season by lightning threw a wrench into the start of Iowa States 2018 season and they came out flat in their next game against in-state rival Iowa. Same thing at running back with Sheldon Croney, Johnny Lang, Breece Hall and Kene Nwangwu. The Cyclones cant control the weather, which is one of the few things Matt Campbell doesnt try to control, but if he could, he should. Whether its DeShaunte Jones, Tarique Milton, Landon Akers, Sean Shaw, etc., spread it around so Purdy gets a flow going in game action with a lot of new-ish faces.

Trends to know

Stanley will be just sharp enough on third downs in the fourth quarter to lead two scoring drives to breathe a little easier, but its going to be an intense four quarter fight. Iowa State will hang around, hang around, hang around and it wont be able to come through late when it has its chances.

Its GameDays first appearance in Ames, so the environment should be off the charts. Stanley throws two touchdowns in the second half, and Iowa makes it five in a row against its in-state rival. We anticipate Iowa State jumping out to a quick lead, but as long as Iowa stays within double digits, the Hawkeyes should be able to wear on Purdy with a defense that settles in as the game progresses.

In ISUs nine Big 12 seasons before her arrival, ISU had only picked up 13 conference wins compared to 167 losses. In 2009, alone, Iowa State won a program-record 17 Big 12 matches en route to a school record 27 victories on the season. The Cyclones had anchored the Big 12 standings in seven of those nine campaigns. Johnson-Lynchs 161-87 record against Big 12 opponents is incredible in many contexts.

You know about Iowas defensive line and Sporting News preseason All-American A.J.

She has guided the Cyclones to the NCAA Regional Semifinals three times and to the Regional Final on two occasions in 2008 and 2011.

Meanwhile, Nate Stanley has been terrific right out of the gate. Justin Fields might be doing big things for Ohio State, but Stanley is right up there with the Big Tens best quarterbacks, coming off a strong 236-yard, three-score day against the Scarlet Knights. Iowa State has a solid secondary, but it needs help from the pass rush thats going to struggle against the Iowa line.
