Iowa State plagued by missed opportunities in loss to K

Iowa State plagued by missed opportunities in loss to K

Bill Snyder's team outlasted the Longhorns at home 24-21 to improve to 4-3 and 2-2 in conference.

K-State (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) built a two touchdown lead by halftime behind a strong running presence in the early going as the Wildcats ground and pound attack went for 149 yards in the first half, averaging 7.5 yards per rush. This will be the Wildcats' most hard home game. Should Kansas State win in Ames on Saturday, the Wildcats will be one game closer to bowl eligibility.

Despite falling behind by three scores to begin the fourth quarter, the second half's final statistics flipped as Iowa State racked up 360 total yards on its way to making it a five-point game late. Iowa State hasn't beaten the Sooners since a 1990 win in Norman and on a short week of rest, the attention to detail in practices has priority over just about everything.

Junior quarterback Jesse Ertz throws a pass at the game against Texas on October 22, 2016, in Bill Snyder Family Stadium. His 106 yards rushing represented a season-high for the redshirt sophomore.

There is also nothing wrong with rotating running backs. Justin Silmon, Alex Barnes and Ertz all averaged more than six yards per run, but the all saw few carries than Charles Jones, who managed 37 yards on 12 attempts. In the first quarter, the Wildcats compiled 98 rushing yards. Jones had a team-high 12 carries for 39 yards.

Warren, who has 124 carries and 530 yards with three touchdowns this season, participated in practice Sunday and will be evaluated throughout the beginning of the week.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State's most recent stretch of futility has made it tough for any of its players to put their name in the school record book.

The Cyclone offense had an impressive day despite missing key opportunities to score, putting up 493 yards and going 7-for-15 on 3rd down conversions. Playing on the road in front of a insane Homecoming crowd in Ames probably wasn't K-State's idea of a good time.

Sophomore cornerback D.J. Reed paced all Wildcat defenders in tackles, as he tallied a career-high 14, matching Elijah Lee's effort at West Virginia on October 1 for the most tackles in a game this season. Once the second half came around Ertz and Kansas State's passing attack stalled.

The way Kansas State's offense has been playing lately, the Wildcats could perform as they did against the Red Raiders and the Cyclones.

The Cyclones rotated quarterbacks from series to series, but in the fourth quarter Park and Joel Lanning rotated within the same series.

Iowa State struggled just as much on defense in the first half against the Wildcats - and tackling on first contact was a persistent issue - but the unit allowed just 141 yards and 14 points in the last 30 minutes. The Wildcats held nearly a 2-to-1 advantage in total yards (257-133), an 18:12-11:48 lead in time of possession, and a 16-7 advantage in first downs.
