Iowa State defense steps up in Kinnick

IOWA CITY --- Jake Knott simply made an instinctive football play, right?Umm, think again.Yes, Knott used his fantasic athletic ability, but the interception that sealed Iowa State's 9-6 victory over Iowa was more of a result of his brain than his legs and ar...
