    Stats for 1st 3 quarters

    I've tried to find this, but I can't so apologies to anyone who has already posted this, but I have a question...
    Looking at the stats for the game, other than the final score, things look pretty even. In some cases SDSU actually looks far better than the Cyclones.
    I'm wondering if there is any way to compare the stats for just the first three quarters. That fluke fumble for a touchdown made their total yardage look impressive, but it also seemed like ISU pulled its starters early while SDSU kept theirs in. Is there any way to compare stats for just the first 3 quarters?

    Not sure other than going back through yourself and doing it play-by-play.

    I thought the same thing you did but when you factor in the fumble was ~70ish yards that was a fluke and we basically played every single person that will see the field this year (minus punter), I think the stats are fine. Also, you have to note that once we are up 20-0 at half, I am sure Chizik and Co didn't want to reveal any other aspects of the D or Offense, thus just run their basic packages.

    Yeah, they definately slowed things up in the 4th, which would explain our huge TOP advantage.

    If you go to the Official Iowa State website. Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - Iowa State Cyclones Sports
    In the main article about the game there is a link to some pretty in depth stats. They have stats broke down by quarter.

    Wow, SDSU did not belong on the same FIELD as us.

    They did close to nothing against our first teamers.

    You realize, most all their yards came against 2nd and 3rd team defenders out there.

    Thanks, I don't have time to break it all down, but here is what I found...

    At the end of 3 quarters, SDSU averaged 3.98 yards per play and ISU averaged 5.54 Yards per play.

    If anyone else can find anything else important in those numbers, I would appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance!

    Basically, we did what we needed to, with plenty of room for improvement.

    I don't know if I'd go that far. If it weren't for some of those INT's, they seemed to be moving the ball against us. Of course, our offensive yardage is skewed a little, as a result of those INT's. That's about an extra 200 yards to be had. I'm guessing we would have chewed up a little more time and had a lot more yards offensively, if we hadn't returned the INT's so far!

    Either way, SDSU wasn't great, but if hadn't caught some of the balls that we may not have caught last year, we may have had a game on our hands...

    Goes both ways. We scored on every drive that didn't end with a fumble, including once on the goal line.

    Our first/second team defense gave up just 3 points, the second/third team gave up one touchdown. Their second touchdown was as fluky as can be.

    The game could have VERY EASILY been close to a 55-7 final.
