Ames, Iowa — Iowa State and Iowa collide in Ames for the 67th meeting in the series. With College GameDay as a back drop the rivalry is getting more national exposure than ever before and ISU coach Matt Campbell says the Cyclones need to remain focused on the game.
Campbell says it is important not to be distracted by everything going on around the game.
Campbell says like most big games it will come down to who wins in the trenches.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the Cyclones have become a contender in the Big 12 with defense and it is tough to solve.
Ferentz says the Iowa defense must contend with Iowa State’s run-pass option plays.
Iowa has won four straight in the series and Ferentz says the players know what this game means.
Kick off is at 3 pm at Jack Trice Stadium.
