___________________________________________
WEEK 2 Iowa State

As the game week went on, the line for the contest moved up to 3.5 by the morning of kickoff.  Wonder what the gamblers knew….

We see a box on the screen, over the last 10, 6 up 4 down for the Hawks.  But when the Hawks win, it’s by 21.8 points.  When the Clones win, 2.8.

Trice is of course a sell out for this one, the sun is shining, and the players take the field.  The Clones have won the toss and taken the ball, a trick out of Iowa’s playbook.  

Recinos kickoff lands one yard deep in the end zone, and the Clone return man brings it out - across the near hash at the 10, he tries to cut it more up the middle, but the Hawks drop him at the 18 yard line.
