Iowa State faces a tough challenge this week as the Cyclones prepare to visit third ranked Oklahoma.
That’s Iowa State coach Matt Campbell. The Cyclones opened Big 12 play with a 17-7 loss at home to Texas.
An improving Iowa State defense will need to try and slow down a Sooner offense led by quarterback Baker Mayfield.
Campbell says he has been impressed with the smooth transition Lincoln Riley has made to head coach. Riley was elevated from offensive coordinator following the retirement of Bob Stoops.
Campbell says there has not been a loss of confidence since losing to Texas.
Campbell has been impressed with how quickly Joe Lanning has adapted to the switch from quarterback to linebacker. Lanning is coming off a 20 tackle effort in the game against Texas.
