    Int'l Bowl on ESPN U (Northern Illinois)

    Last year's Int'l Bowl is on.

    It's a good look at NIU since they return a good chunk of that team.

    Their defense sucks.

    Re: Int'l Bowl on ESPN U (Northern Illinois)

    A few things I noticed (admittingly only watching a few series in the 3rd/4th Q):

    First, this team returns a ton of experience from the Int'l bowl team, despite what you think we're still Iowa State and no game will be a walk in the park.

    They are incredibly scrappy and held there ground well until the 4th quarter when USF began to take control. They do have a solid offense and two viable threats at QB and will be solid at RB. The passing game is a bit suspect so pressuring the QB will be key, as usual.

    USF's bigger and more athletic line started to wear down the Huskies and provided big holes in the second half.

    Iowa State will win this game by:

    1. Consistent Oline play and keeping Jake Coffman out of the backfield. The Oline was very well coached last year and I expect that to continue. We won't run out of the gates and dominate, but it will happen over the course of the game by wearing down a smaller Dline and linebacking unit.

    2. Manning up and plugging holes by the front 7 on D. The D has to hold strong for 4 quarters and not let the NIU offense wear them down. (this will be a good test how the D will look this year. Wear down and let 10-yd gashes through in the 2nd half we could be in for a long year, on the flip side hold strong and fill gaps consistently and we could be in for a surprise)


    Here's my prediction:

    ISU - 24
    NIU - 21

    I watched that game a couple times again. NIU is decent, and will be a solid matchup. Hard to judge the defense because i think that SFloridas qb is a lot like Seneca Wallace. Seneca is a bit better, but this guy is redic. If we (ISU) dont turn the ball over more then 2 times we should win this game by 10 pts i beleive. If we dont turn the ball over at all, i could see us winning by 14.
