Coordinator Speak: Burnham Talks Toledo

Iowa State defensive coordinator Wally Burnham breaks down Toledo's defense leading up to the Cyclones' homecoming matchup with the Rockets on Saturday.

Toledo will arrive in Ames this weekend boasting a powerful running game that Iowa State must attempt to contain to leave homecoming weekend with a victory.

The Rockets are averaging 242.7 rushing yards per game this season, the 20th-best mark in the nation. Running back Kareem Hunt, who may or may not play this weekend due to an injury, has racked up 527 rushing yards for an average of 8.9 yards per carry, the top mark in the country. Even without Hunt, freshman Terry Swanson rushed for 172 yards last week against Western Michigan.
