The Iowa State Cyclones and the Texas Tech Raiders both have the same overall score so far into the NCAA football season 2017-18. Both teams are 4-2. The Cyclones have a better score in their own division than the Red Raiders in theirs.
Clearly, the Texas Tech Red Raiders are better players than the Iowa State Cyclones. However, that alone doesn’t mean that a game’s fate can be easy to decide. You never know which aspects are factored in during the actual gameplay. Both teams have their own defenses and strengths.
The Red Raiders are much better in passing yards and receiving yards than the Cyclones. The season’s leader in passing yards is Nic Shimonek having 2,134 yards with 18 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. His performance is really core for the team’s offense.
Further, Keke Coutee leads the team in receiving with 45 receptions and 672 yards along with 6 touchdowns. The stats of these players are much higher than those of the leaders in the Cyclones. However, the team really needs to up its rushing game. They can surely improve a lot in rushing yards. Justin Stockton leads the team right now with 481 yards on 72 carries and 4 touchdowns.
Iowa State is a team that might be lacking a bit in the stats but is nowhere near an easy opponent. The Cyclones have what it takes to sweep an unwary enemy who comes without preparation.
Jacob Park leads the team in passing yards with 1,181 yards with 9 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Not a stellar score, especially when you see it next to Shimonek, but this is something that will be vital in case ISU has an opportunity to win.
David Montgomery leads the team in rushing yards and Hakeem Butler leads the team in receiving yards with 22 receptions.
