Brandtner Having A Very Good Year
AMES, Iowa – Punting in Iowa State's Jack Trice Stadium is an art. The facility is not bowled in and day games are frequently played in windy conditions. There were no big wind gusts Saturday as a crowd of more than 50,000 watched Iowa State down Army 31-10 to improve to 3-1 this season. At the start of the game, the flags around the stadium hung limp, perfect conditions for ISU punter Mike Brandtner. The Cyclone punter was at his best, averaging 47.8 yards on five punts, dropping four kicks inside the Army 20-yard line.
