ISU On Defense Against Nebraska

The Cyclone defense gets ready for the Cornhuskers after coming off an impressive showing against Baylor.

The Cyclone Sports Report Three Keys To Look For On Saturday Afternoon:

1)GET READY FOR TWO-Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has stated throughout the week that it will be a game-time decision on whether he starts junior Zac Lee or whether he goes with true freshman Cody Green. The position has been a problem for the Cornhuskers who have failed to score a touchdown in 10 of 12 quarters against BCS opponents. Green is considered to be the better athlete and runner while Lee is the more accurate passer.

2)STOP HELU JR.-Cornhusker junior I-back Roy Helu Jr. trails only Cyclone running back Alexander Robinson for the rushing lead in the Big 12. He has posted five 100-yard rushing games including a very impressive career-high 169 yards against a very tough Virgini Tech defensive unit. He is nursing a shoulder injury so if he is slowed by it on Saturday don't be surprised to see highly touted freshman running back Dontrayevous Robinson.

3CAUSE THREE TURNOVERS-The Cyclones did a great job of forcing turnovers against Baylor and it helped lead them to their first Big 12 victory of the season. If the Cyclones want to end their Big 12 road losing streak on Saturday they should set a target goal of causing three turnovers. If they can do that and turn them into points each time they would really enhance their chances of a big victory on Saturday.
