AMES — Iowa State will be without two freshman when they open the season tonight at home against Mississippi Valley State. Marcedus Leech and Luke Anderson informed coach Steve Prohm they are leaving the team.
Prohm says both intend to transfer.
Prohm says he wants to see the Cyclones play the right way in the opener.
Tipoff at Hilton Coliseum tonight is scheduled for 7 o’clock.
AMES — Iowa State returns to the spot of a breakthrough win in 2017 when they visit ninth ranked Oklahoma. Two years ago the Cyclones stunned the third ranked Sooners 38-31 and would go on to post eight wins in Matt Campbell’s second season as head coach.
Quarterback Brock Purdy had three interceptions in the fourth quarter of a loss to Oklahoma State. Campbell expects the sophomore to bounce back with a strong effort.
Campbell says the first priority of the bye week was to rest and get healthy.
Kickoff in Norman on Saturday is scheduled for 7 o’clock.
