Oklahoma State Sets Aim on Iowa State
"We've played so well to this point, there's no reason to take someone for granted," said quarterback Brandon Weeden, who has emerged as a leading Heisman Trophy candidate heading into Friday night's contest between OSU (10-0, 7-0 in Big 12) and Iowa State (5-4, 2-4) in Ames, Iowa.
"We respect Iowa State. In college football today, if you overlook an opponent, bad things happen ... and all the goals we've set for ourselves are no longer attainable."
OSU, which secured the first 10-0 football record in school history with last week's 66-6 rout of Texas Tech, can clinch an opportunity to play Dec. 3 for a berth in the BCS National Championship Game by knocking off the Cyclones. But Iowa State, which had a bye last week, averages 183 rushing yards per game and leans on the contributions a dual-threat quarterback to make it happen.
