Just in case you hadn't seen it, here's what ESPN's Tim Griffin had to say about our game this weekend:
Iowa State 33, Army 21: This should be an intriguing battle as two 2-1 teams coming off impressive victories over Mid-American Conference teams will meet. Iowa State will be gunning to beat its 2008 season win total with a victory Saturday night. The Cyclones rebounded from a struggling performance against Iowa with an impressive victory at Kent State that snapped a nation-worst 17-game road losing streak. Austen Arnaud orchestrated a strong performance as Alexander Robinson rushed for 143 yards for his second straight 100-yard game. The key for the Cyclones will be to contain Army’s option-based attack and force quarterback Trent Steelman into long-yardage passing situations. This one will be won in the trenches, and I like Iowa State’s chances because the Cyclones are more multi-faceted.
Here's the link to the article for those interested.
I don't think he's too far off, but I don't see Army scoring that many points. I think Army hangs around for about the first quarter and then we open up a double-digit lead in the 2nd quarter and continue to fine-tune the offense in the second half.
ISU 38 - Army 13
