Iowa State Coach Matt Campbell Previews Louisiana

Season openers always have a lot of question marks and even more so this season. After not having spring practice and navigating through a pandemic the past couple of months Iowa State debuts on Saturday against Louisiana.

Cyclone coach Matt Campbell.

Campbell likes the way his team has prepared.

After a roller coaster of an off-season Campbell says the Cyclones are ready for a game.

As he enters his fifth season Campbell has turned the Cyclones into a consistent winner. The next step is handling lofty expectations. Campbell felt the Cyclones were pressing a year ago in finishing with a 7-6 record.

Campbell says last year was a learning experience for a program not accustomed to dealing with expectations.

Campbell does not think the lack of fans at Jack Trice Stadium will have any impact on the game.

A veteran Iowa State defense must slow down a high powered Louisiana offense led by dual threat quarterback Levi Lewis.
