1)PRIDE-This defense has given up an average of 47 points per game over their last four and Saturday will be good test for them to show that they haven't quit on the season. The young players need to step up and show that they can improve this defense next year.
2)BLITZ-Iowa State needs to take some chances in this game so I think a few safety or corner blitzes could possibly lead to an early turnover and a nice momentum builder for Iowa State.
3)THREE TURNOVERS-Kansas State has turned it over ten times over that last four games. So I believe that three is the magic number. If Iowa State can get the Wildcats to commit three or more turnovers I believe they will win the game.
