Iowa State Cyclones
OVER 8 Wins?? -125
Now the Cyclones are returning 14 starters and are led by one of the head coaching products in college football and that is Matt Campbell. Campbell was sought after by groups in the NFL but feels as though something is being built by him in Ames, Iowa.
Iowa State is one of just two teams in the Big 12 (another being the Oklahoma Sooners) to acquire at least eight games in each of the past two seasons. This team has five players that are preseason All-Americans and a quarterback in passing efficiency campaign in Brock Purdy who led The Big 12.
You heard that Brock Purdy needed a better efficacy than Heisman hopeful Sammy Ehlinger of Texas and Heisman winner Kyler Murray of Oklahoma. Purdy really turned this team around from the second half of the year since he included a game when he was called the newcomer to 14 more points.
That the Cyclones will overlook NFL-bound David Montgomery but also have the emptiness to fill although in the.
The Cyclone defense will probably be extremely strong again and directed the Big 12. They allowed only 3.3 yards per carry, a marker that has been ninth-best from the country. Since the conference was founded in 1996, Iowa State hadnt ever finished first in scoring defense until they finally did it in 18 into their glorious turnaround period.
Tons of sound players reunite like standout safety Greg Einsworth (led team with 87 tackles), defensive end DaQuan Bailey (8 sacks, 14.5 tackles for a loss), along with linebackers Marcel Spears and Mike Rose.
Campbells team completed the season by winning seven of its final eight games and has high expectations heading into the 2019 season. Getting to eight-plus wins isnt just something I believe they will perform however a conference championship game is in their reach.
In their non-conference schedule theyve only twocake matches, versus Northern Iowa and Louisiana-Monroe, but flanked by those games that they have their in-state competitions, the Hawkeyes of Iowa. Its time for the Cyclones to make an early-season announcement and a triumph over the Hawkeyes (Iowa has won four straight in this series) can do exactly that.
Their road conference competitions are Baylor, West Virginia, Texas Tech (at AT&T Stadium) and Kansas State, all of teams that the Cyclones beat a year ago. They do play one road game and thats vs Oklahoma. Before you count that as a loss, dont forget two decades ago in Norman that the Cyclones stunned Heisman winner Baker Mayfield 38-31 and that the Sooners.
The week after that game the Longhorns venture to Jack Trice Stadium in the game which will determine who gets a possible tiebreaker to qualify for the Big 12 championship game. Although Texas has a head coach in Tom Herman plus a powerful crime, the Longhorns yield just three starters and will not be able to keep up by the end of game.
Things are changing at the Big 12 and the Iowa State Cyclones would be the No. 1??change that is going to take the convention by storm.
