Week 3: Iowa State

As the game begins, we see the coaches and players talking about the CyHawks series, and then Kirk answers a few questions.  We get some more FS1 pregame, and then finally get to the field, and the booth says that there will be some showers moving in.  Indeed.  It is very overcast as ISU kicks off.

And ISU is kicking from the open end of the wind tunnel that is Jack Trice, and the kickoff sails out bounds behind the end zone.  Iowa starts from the 25.

The booth points out that ISU issuing a 3-3-5 defensive formation, as Iowa starts with Nate in the gun, and he snaps the ball, and quickly tries the far side, the quick out pattern to his tight end Weiting but and ISU defender knocks the ball away, 2nd and 10.

Nate to the gun again with IKM next to him, and 3 wideouts on the near side, 1 on the far.  He runs the read/option, it goes to IKM, he tries the middle but gets only 1.  3rd and 9 from the 26.

Nate has the team in the same look, after the snap, the pocket begins to close, but Nate fires a rope down the far hash, ISM, caught, and downed but that is an Iowa 1st down at the 37!
