Iowa State has a second opportunity to avenge a loss from last season (79-44 to Drake). Something seems to have clicked after the Hawai'i game, and the Cyclones are playing noticeably better - at least in terms of running the offense and getting more comfortable. The addition of Lucca Staiger as a scoring threat in the Oregon State game also helps.

Josh Young is very obviously the engine that fuels the Drake machine. I imagine he'll get the attention of our defense tonight.

It's so good to see those numbers from Craig at the top. He's totally capable of carrying this team. With continued improvement from Diante Garrett and Lucca Staiger, we've got an exciting group of sophomores to watch.
