Akron vs Iowa State Live

It’s a label no one wants to have, but I’m a firm believer that Iowa State is the best two-loss team in all of college football. Even without their original home-opener against South Dakota State, the Cyclones have lost to an Iowa team that should be in the top 25, and an Oklahoma team that appears ready to win the Big 12 once again. Iowa State is in the midst of one of the toughest schedule’s to start the season in all of college football.

Even without Kyle Kempt, Iowa State had plenty of positives to take away against Oklahoma. Zeb Noland was tremendous against an improved Sooners defense, and Hakeem Butler was a man amongst children out at wide receiver. David Montgomery returned to his beastly ways as he willed was for plenty of yards after contact. One area of concern for the Cyclones was their defense as they appeared to take two steps back following their stout performance against Iowa.

Akron comes into the game with loads and loads of confidence following their huge win at Northwestern, their first win against a Big Ten opponent since 1894 – yes, 1894. The Zips are coming off a MAC Championship game appearance in 2017 and have a rising, young quarterback by the name of Kato Nelson. Nelson has thrown for 509 yards and five touchdowns in his first two contests after taking over their reigns late last season as a true freshman.
