    Week 1

    ISU rumbled over FCS Midwest 63-14. The tone was set on the first series of the game. The Tuskers took the opening kick off and on third down attempted a pass. The pass was broken up by the ISU safety and picked off just inches from the ground by star linebacker Jeremiah George who returned it for six.

    The offense did their part as well. The running game amassed 281 yards, with starting half back James White taking a seat at halftime and letting his mates do the rest of the work. All of the backups came into the game in the fourth and still couldn't be kept out of the endzone even when almost exclusively running the ball.

    The matchup against Missouri after next weeks bye will surely be a real eye opener in comparison to this week. Hopefully the Cyclones will be ready.

    HAWK BLOCKED!

    ISU gives ball away too many times to keep up with Hawkeyes 42-21

    The Cyclones came into a packed Jack Trice stadium with a specific plan. Execute. They knew they were facing a talented Iowa team whose main goal was to ram the ball down the defenses throat. ISU took the opening kickoff and the offense went to work on their first drive. They mixed solid runs with timely passes, resulting in a TD run by halfback James White from 3 yards out. The Hawks answered with a methodical drive of their own. Solid running set up short third downs and easy passing situations for first year starter Rudock. The ISU defense did a decent job against the run. The big plays of the drive were when Rudock took advantage of the numbers up in the box and hit precision strikes to TE Fiedorowicz and a TD pass to WR Martin-Manley to knot it up early in the 2nd quarter.
    ISUs ensuing drive was also successfull, getting down within the ten yard line. That's when they hit the first snag of the game. TE Ernst Brun made a solid cut on a corner route but QB Sam Richardson left the pass a little low and safety Nico Law laid out to make a perfect interception. The Iowa offense took advantage of the huge momentum swing and led a clock eating drive capped by a shot Weisman TD run to go up 14-7 with 20 seconds left in the half.
    Coach Rhoads decided to take a few shots and Richardson hit Jarvis West deep as the opposing safety dove to break up the pass. West streaked 75 yards to tie it up at the half 14-14.

    ISU was lucky to tie up the game and the defense knew they needed to step up to get the ball back. They did, but on ISUs first drive in the second half Richardson tried to squeeze the ball into coverage resulting in his second pick on the day. Iowa pounced, breaking the tie. ISU would throw the ball to the Iowa defense again on their next drive and Iowa executed precisely scoring again. The nightmare 3rd quarter ended with Iowa up 28-14.

    ISU would hit paydirt in the 4th with a TD pass to Ernst Brun but with only 3:32 left, they were almost out of time. The defense stood strong and got the ball back right away and Sam led his troops onto the field hoping to march the ball down and tie it up again. Cornerback BJ Lowery stuck a dagger in ISU with a 28 yard pick 6 basically ending all hopes of a comeback. The ISU offense would sputter on their next drive turning it over on downs deep in Hawkeye territory. With too much time on the clock to just kneel it out, the Hawk running game battered away at an exhausted ISU defense and Mark Weisman fell into the endzone to end the scoring at 42-21.

    After the game coach Rhoads said the following: "We just don't have the talent to overcome that many mistakes. We showed that we could go toe to toe with them if we execute, but our defense can only do so much when they play almost the entire 3rd quarter without rest. I take my hat off to Coach @Selvy9 . He did exactly what he should have done. His QB was nearly perfect, setting up the pass with the run and hitting open receivers with everyone up in the box. The one time we picked him off, we threw it right back to them. Our defense actually did a very good job. If our offense can hold onto the ball better and keep them off the field, we can make some noise in the Big12. Now we have to prepare for a completely different style of offense with Oregon coming to town and our offense NEEDS to do a much better job."

    Upset Storm Brewing!

    ISU upsets Oregon in instant classic at Jack Trice Stadium! 33-28

    ISU QB Sam Richardson was challenged by his coaches after last weeks loss to the rival Iowa Hawkeyes. "Take care of the football, make good decisions, and we can win." Sam did just that during a difficult game against an extremely talented Oregon team.

    Iowa State took the opening kickoff and went to work. The Cyclones wanted to run the ball and mixed in passing to drive down the field all the way to a first and goal inside the 5. 3 straight stuffed runs led to a disappointing field goal.
    Oregon would answer with a solid drive of their own on the shoulders of do everything running back DeAnthony Thomas. Iowa State had a big opportunity when Marcus Mariota made a bad decision trying to stretch the field. His pass hit Sr safety Jacques Washington in the chest, but he dropped it. Oregon would capitalize on the free pass and scored on a TD run from one yard out by Thomas.
    ISU worked their way down field on the next drive, opening it up a little more in the passing game and taking advantage of an aggressive Duck defense. A sharp TD pass to TE Ernst Brun was the result.
    [​IMG]
    ISU would get an interception by Sr safety Cliff Stokes to set up their next drive which was again capped by a TD pass to Brun with 1:14 left in the half.
    [​IMG]
    DeAnthony Thomas decided to take matters into his own hands. Despite a deep kick to the very back of the end zone, DAT worked his magic as multiple ISU players were smashed leading to an almost too easy 109 yard record setting TD return. A 17-7 lead was almost completely nullified.
    [​IMG]

    ISU would take a few shots on the resulting drive with just over a minute left in the half. Sam Richardson worked the ball methodically down the field, using timeouts and the sideline to stop the clock. He had the Ducks on their webbed heals and hit a strike down the the one yard line with just a few seconds left. ISU called a quick run play, but the ducks saw it coming and came out in a goal line D. Sam audibled to a pass and got the ball of quick. Unfortunately Oregon safety Brian Jackson made a miracle leaping grab to kill a sure scoring opportunity.
    17-14 ISU at half

    The second half got a bit crazy. Oregon would take the kickoff looking to capitalize on the ISU miscue before half. Mariota, who had been cold all day Threw his second pick to Stokes. Stokes was so happy that he jumped for joy. Coach Rhoads would pull him aside later and tell him that was a fucking stupid idea.
    [​IMG]
    Right after the change in possession, disaster struck. Oregon Coach @guayo10 was struck by lightning resulting in a loss of "connection" to the game. The game was immediately delayed. After Guayo regained consciousness, Coach Rhoads asked him if he wanted to postpone the game. Coach Guayo said, "No, your boys have earned this night, let them finish." He would let his offensive coordinator Scott Frost complete the game. ISU would take advantage of the short field and punch the ball in from 3 yards out.
    Marcus Mariota's accuracy did not improve in his coaches absence either, throwing a third pick to corner Kenny Lynn. ISU would rumble in for another TD, this time y Jeff Woody.
    [​IMG]

    The Ducks weren't done though. A botched option pitch would give them a short field, followed by a TD on a screen pass to, you guessed it, DAT.
    After a punt the Ducks would drive again on the back of Thomas to get another TD run. 31-28 ISU.
    After a failed onside kick, ISU would do their best to run out the clock on the ensuing drive. Oregon would stand strong and prevent a first down, using all of their timeouts to ensure a final possession. However during the resulting punt, with under a minute remaining, Thomas tried to do too much, muffing the punt which then bounced down all the way to the 1 yard line before a duck would finally recover it. To score, the ducks would have to drive all the way from their 1 yard line. ISU dropped everyone into coverage and after an incompletion, ISU defensive end David Irving broke through for his third sack of the half, resulting in a safety to seal the game. ISU would kneel the ball after the free kick with a 33-28 win!

    Great game by coach @guayo10. I am lucky he did not want to replay it as I definitely had the upset special going. Mariota was cold as ice and DeAnthony Thomas could only do so much. He did end up with 143 on the ground, 40 through the air, 157 return yards and all four Oregon TDs. That's 340 total yards! I saved a video of the end of his 109 yard return for posterity.

    ISU Stats:
    Sam Richardson: 18/25 235 yards, 2 TDs and 1INT - 12 rushes for 47 yards
    James White: 47 yards rushing
    Quenton Bundrage: 6 catches for 101 yards

    Messin' With Texas!
    [​IMG]
    Cliff Stokes with first of 3 INTs
    Defense sparks upset of Texas at JTS!
    Texas came into the game with plans of running over the Cyclones. Their first drive started out just as they planned. ISU stood up to prevent big gains, but the Longhorns worked their way down the field, first down after first down. ISU was finally able to force a 4th and short on the 16 yard line and Texas booted a 33 yard field goal. ISUs ensuing possession went as planned for Texas as well. They stuffed two quick runs and the third down pass was dropped in tight coverage. 3 and out and a punt to give Texas great field position.
    ISU was able to get the ball back however and this time led a drive of their own. Texas was determined to stop the run, forcing the Cyclones to go to the air more often than they would have preferred. QB Sam Richardson was able to exploit some minor mismatches with slot receivers covered by the LBers clogging up the middle. Sam hit WR Tad Ecby from 10 yards out after calling a hot route to pull him away from a the middle.
    Texas would again drive down the field but missed a 50 yard field goal setting ISU up with great field position. The Texas D held strong forcing a 40 yard field goal. 10-3 ISU
    Ash then led a solid 2 minute drill hitting TE Greg Daniels right up the seam for a 20 yard TD pass with just over a minute left in the half.
    The ISU coaches decided to roll the dice and went to the air as well. Richardson used the sideline and his timeouts, capping the drive with a 26 yard TD pass to Quenton Bundrage.
    17-10 ISU at the half!

    The Cyclones got the ball to start the second half, hoping to add to their lead on their first drive. Texas remained stiff against the run but were exploited through the air again. Quenton Bundrage took a quick shot over the middle on 3rd and 3 and wiggled his way up the middle for a 55 yard TD! ISU would get a pick to set up their next drive. On the 25 yard line the Texas D seemed to be expecting the read option to the outside. Jeff Woody instead took a dive right up the middle for a long TD run. ISU all of a sudden was up 31-10 at the end of the Third.

    The 4th quarter would get interesting. Sam Richardson struck another big blow, keeping the ball on a read option, cutting to take advantage of his TE blocking down field and rumbled 35 yards for what looked to be the TD to put the game away.
    Texas struck back on the ensuing kickoff, with Daje Johnson taking the return right up the middle for a TD getting the Longhorns back into the game. With nearly 6 minutes left, Texas kicked it deep hoping their D would get the ball back. ISU took no chances and attempted to run for the first down to keep the clock running. Jeff Woody was stopped inches short on 3rd and 2 putting the ball back in Ash's hands. A facemask on the punt return gave Texas extra yards. Ash worked his way down and struck from 8 yards out with 2:32 left. 38-24 Texas. Texas again chose to kick deep. ISU would run three times, using up Texas' time outs, and punting the ball back to the Longhorns with just under 2 minutes left.
    Ash would get picked off a fourth time to seal the victory for ISU.

    Cardinal vs. Cardinal FIESTA!

    Cyclones win Fiesta Bowl in Impressive Fashion
    The Iowa State Cyclones earned their first bid to a BCS game ever after winning their first Big12 title in dramatic fashion. Their only loss came against iIn State Rival Iowa early in the season. The Cyclones rolled through their conference schedule with big wins over Texas and Oklahoma and a non-con win over Heisman Winner DeAnthony Thomas and Oregon in Jack Trice stadium. On to the Fiesta Bowl!

    Cardial and Gold vs Cardinal and White. The ISU defense was tasked with containing Teddy Bridgewater and they answered the call.
    Strong defense gave the Cyclones good field position all day leading to easier scoring drives.

    The game started out with ISU getting on the board with a Jeff Woody TD from 6 yards out.
    [​IMG]
    Jeff Woody also had 3 rushing TD on the day​

    Louisville answered soon after to tie it up. The second quarter, however, did not work out so well for the Cardinals. ISU reeled off 3 straight TDs. Sam Richardson controlled the tempo well, throwing accurate passes to move the sticks. He also ran the ball well combined with the running of Jeff and James out of the backfield. Louisville would tack on a field goal right before the end of the half to make it 28-10 Cyclones.

    The third quarter was more of the same. Louisville couldn't get anything going against the stout ISU defense, and the Cyclone offense ran up and down the field adding two more TDs by the bulldozer Jeff Woody.

    Teddy Bridgewater would get hot in the 4th, scoring two TDs on long drives, but it was too little too late.
    The defense continued to impress in the 4th. Big Walter Woods, a Senior defensive tackle, got a huge sack on Bridgewater.
    [​IMG]
    Sam Richardson would tear a 31 yard run, the teams longest of the night, to set up one last TD for James White. 49-24 Cyclones!

    Senior linebacker Jeremiah George put the icing on the cake with a late pick down the field.
    [​IMG]
    Player of the Game: James White In his last game he had 118 rushing yards, 3TDs, and 50 receiving yards

    Other stats:
    307 team rushing yards and 515 total yards
    9/10 on third down conversions
    Richardson: 13/18 for 208 and 1TD, 82 rushing yards
    Woody: 81 rushing yards and 3TDs
