Iowa State’s surge to the top of the Big 12 standings and to number 14 in the AP Poll is garnering national attention but coach Matt Campbell says it won’t change the focuse for his team. The Cyclones take a four-game winning streak on the road this week to take on West Virginia.
Campbell says the Cyclones won’t forget what got them to this point.
Campbell says the Cyclones won’t have trouble remaining humble even as they receive national praise.
Sophomore linebacker Marcel Spears is the Big 12 Defensive Player oif the Week for the second straight time. Spears had nine tackles and his late interception sealed a 14-7 win over TCU.
Campbell says Iowa State’s linebackers are playing well in part because of how well the defensive line is playing.
Another key for the defense has been the punting of Colin Downing that is helping ISU own the field position battle.
