What to Watch for: Secondary and Overall Improvement
With a Baylor pass heavy attack, Iowa State’s secondary will get tested once again. They have continued to improve each week, and we have seen the emergence of a star in Isheem Young. The whole team will look to improve as they have huge tests upcoming after their bye as they will see both Texas and Kansas State, both towards the top of the Big 12.
FInding a Running Game
Charlie Brewer has had success throwing the ball for the Bears, however a run game has not come to surface. Baylor does not have a running back over 200 yards yet this season and will need to keep a balanced attack against a talented Cyclone defense. John Lovett leads them in carries with 36, tallying 125 yards on those carries.
