Iowa State football Ready For Spring Practice

The Iowa State football team is embracing high expectations as spring practice begins this week. A young Cyclone squad stumbled early before finishing in a tie for fourth in the Big-12 race and 7-6 overall after losing to Memphis in the Liberty Bowl. Nearly all the key players return for next season.

That’s ISU coach Matt Campbell who says they have experience handling high expectations in past years.

Campbell says last season was a huge boost of confidence for the returning players.

Campbell admits there is a good feeling around the program heading into spring drills.

Among the key returnees is reigning Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the year Rocco Becht at quarterback who says the Cyclones welcome the expectations.

Becht says building consistency is a key for the offense this spring.

Becht says a 36-26 loss to Memphis in the Liberty Bowl has served as motivation in the off season.

Iowa State’s spring game is April 20th at Jack Trice Stadium
