We are just 30 days away from the Texas Longhorns starting the season and we are entering the final third of our season preview episodes. Next up are the Iowa State Cyclones, who are coming off what is easily the most successful season in recent history and just the second nine-win season in school history. They bring a ton of skill and talent on the offensive side of the ball - including last year’s leading rusher in Breece Hall. Alongside him in the backfield is long-time quarterback Brock Purdy, who finished his season No. 2 in the conference in passing yards a year ago.
Head coach Matt Campbell decided to stay in Ames for another year - reportedly turning down eight-figure NFL offers - to run it back with the Cyclones, so what does he expect from his team in 2021? Can the Cyclones repeat their performance from a year ago and find their way back to Dallas for the Big 12 championship game?
