Iowa State Cyclones 41 Texas Tech Red Raiders 7
- Coaching Staff – The game plan was a masterpiece and the players were “ALL IN” even after four straight tough conference losses. The Cyclones dominated on offense, defense and special teams. Well done coaching staff!
- Defense – It is hard to single any one out in a unit that completely shut down one of the best offenses in college football. The Cyclone D held the high-powered Tech offense to just 290 yards and 7 points. The defense did not allow a Red Raider TD pass, breaking Tech’s streak of 69 straight games.
- Offensive Line – 67 rushes for 368 yards; time of possession: ISU 40 minutes, TT 20 minutes; enough said.
- QB Jared Barnett – It will be a very memorable first start for Mr. Barnett. The offense executed the game plan to perfection and Jared was the maestro.
- RB James White – James was a workhorse carrying the ball 31 times for 138 yards and a touchdown. He is becoming more involved with the passing game as well; he caught 3 balls for 19 yards.
- WR Josh Lenz – Josh was the #1 receiver again with 4 grabs for 74 yards, he also did a great job of handling Tech’s nine punts.
- K Zach Guyer – Guyer has really stepped up his game the last few weeks and made the kicking game a strength for Iowa State. Guyer made his two field goal attempts and all 5 PAT’s.
