Iowa State Defense Gears Up For “Air Raid” Offense

San Antonio, Texas —┬áIowa State’s defense has faced several good passing attacks in the Big 12 Conference and another one awaits in 13th ranked Washington State in Friday’s Alamo Bowl.

Cougar quarterback Gardner Minshew has passed for nearly 4500 yards and 36 touchdowns while only being sacked 11 times. Cyclone junior defensive end JaQuan Bailey says they need to find a way to create pressure.

Bailey says it is a big challenge for an ISU defense that was ranked at the top of the Big 12.

ISU coach Matt Campbell says there are elements that make Washington State’s passing attack unique.

Campbell says Minshew’s ability makes the offense even tougher to stop.

Kick off is at 8 pm on Friday at The Alamodome.
