1)MUST LIMIT THEM IN THE FIRST QUARTER-If Oklahoma State gets something like a 21-0 lead at any point in the first quarter this could get real ugly. However, if the Iowa State defense can step up and shut them down early this might make things interesting.
2)STOP THE RUN-The Cowboys lead the Big 12 in rushing with 209 yards a game. If Iowa State can't contain the run they will be in for a long day.
3)TACKLE!!!-The Iowa State defense might not have as much talent as other defenses in the league but missing basic tackles is just ridiculous. The Cyclones need to tackle exceptionally well on Saturday in order to keep this offense from blowing them out.
