1)STOP REESING-The Cyclones couldn't do it last season when Kansas defeated Iowa State 45-7. He was 21 of 36 for 253 yards and threw for four touchdowns with no interceptions. They need to blitz him and really try to keep him off balance. He is the leader of this offense and the Cyclone defense must contain him if they expect to win.
2)DOMINATE THE RUN-The Kansas running game is only averaging 3.4 yards per carry and have not had a run longer than 20 yards this season. The Iowa State defensive line must have a stellar game and completely shut down the Jayhawk rushing attack.
3)KEEP THE TURNOVERS COMING-The Cyclones lead the Big 12 in turnover margin and if they want to start off 1-0 in the Big 12, I feel they will have to cause at least two game-changing turnovers.
