• Brett McMurphy has the Pokes taking on South Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl (Action)

• Diving into the OSU defense, here are good and bad indicators from Saturday’s game:

Best stat: Iowa State only averaged 2.2 yards a rush. That’s big-time run defense. 

Worst stat: Iowa State quarterback Rocco Becht completed 71.1% of his passes. What might Jalon Daniels or Dillon Gabriel complete?
