Iowa State Offense Prepares For Sooner Defense

Iowa State quarterback Rocco Becht says the Cyclones are more confident as they get ready to visit 14th ranked Oklahoma.

After struggling in losses to Iowa and Ohio the offense registered 34 points in a win over Oklahoma State.

The challenge is much tougher this week against a Sooner defense that is giving up less than nine points per game.

The Oklahoma defense is vastly improved this season and Becht says much of the reason is that this is the second year with Brent Venables as head coach.

A key this week will be handling the noise in Memorial Stadium.

Iowa State is only averaging 83 yards of rushing per game but sophomore running back Eli Sanders feels the ground game is improving. He had 58 yards in the win over Oklahoma State.

Sanders says Becht continues to make progress each week.
