Week 2: Iowa State

It was a beautiful day in the mid 60s as the Hawks and Clones took the field.  About 10 minutes late, as the Yankee game on Fox went into extra innings.  Fortunately, Fox switched the game to Fox Sports 2 - but of course, my DVR did not catch the change, so the first part of the game is quick recapped from the ESPN play by play.

The Hawks start with the ball first, but they go 3 and out, and Kidd boots his punt 55 yards, where Lazard makes the fair catch at the ISU 13.  

The Clones would run 7 plays and get the ball to the Iowa 43, but from there, Richardson was sacked by Fisher for a 9 yard loss, and on the play, a flag, and ISU is nailed with a personal foul.  15 more yards backwards, and they now had 3rd and 32 at their own 33.

ISU then completes a short pass, but another flag, and it’s holding. 3rd and 43 from their 23.
