AMES — It will be Iowa State’s run defense against the Kansas ground game on Saturday night when the teams collide in Jack Trice Stadium. The Cyclone defense ranks second in the Big 12 against the run and has eliminated big plays that plagued it early in the season.
That’s junior safety Beau Freyler. The Jayhawks are averaging nearly 212 yards on the ground in conference play.
Freyler says the goal is to make Kansas throw the ball.
Freyler is looking forward to a night game in Jack Trice Stadium.
Kickoff Saturday night is scheduled for 6 o’clock

Otzelberger says the schedule is designed to help the Cyclones get into the NCAA Tournament.
Tipoff Monday night is scheduled for 7 o’clock.
