    导出博客文章AMES, Iowa -- The dullest matchup involving a Big 12 team this weekend is a crucial one for Iowa State. Authentic Andre Dawson Jersey .The Cyclones (0-3) are the only winless team left in the league, and their start has left little doubt that victories will be hard to come by in 2016.But San Jose State (1-2), which visits Ames on Saturday, is one of the team that Iowa State can and should beat -- even if first-year coach Matt Campbell doesnt agree just yet.When youre 0-3, I dont know that youre supposed to win anything, Campbell said. The reality is, what can we do to get better?For starters, the Cyclones could move the ball with more consistency.Iowa State ranks 115th out of 128 FBS programs with just 317.7 yards per game, and the coaching staff has juggled quarterbacks Joel Lanning and Jacob Park in an effort to find anything that will work for more than just a play here or there.Luckily for the Cyclones, the Spartans are 112th with 475 yards allowed per game.Here are some of the keys to consider as Iowa State prepares to wrap up nonconference play.SCOUTING THE SPARTANS: San Jose State looked somewhat improved despite losing last week, as did Iowa State did in falling at TCU 41-20. The Spartans are averaging just 31 points a game -- although 66 of those 93 points came in a home win over Portland State of the FBS. San Jose State has allowed 16 sacks, the most in the country, but its sixth-best nationally in turnover margin at plus-6. Quarterback Kenny Potter, who left last weeks 34-17 loss at Utah with a bruised right leg, is expected to start against the Cyclones. Potter has completed 60 percent of his passes and can do damage on the run.QB CONTROVERSY? Not yet anyway for Iowa State. Campbell has committed to playing Lanning, the starter and a dual threat, and Park, a more natural passer, based on situations and feel. Lanning rushed for a pair of touchdowns against the Horned Frogs, while Park was 7-of-15 passing for 90 yards.BREAKOUT FOR WARREN? Cyclones running back Mike Warren, the nations leader in rushing yards among freshmen a year ago, finally got untracked against TCU with 95 yards on 23 carries. San Jose State is allowing 236 yards on the ground per game and might be the worst rush defense Iowa State sees all season.Ive kept my same goals, and Im still striving to reach them. Even if it doesnt happen this year, Im pretty sure itll happen down the road, Warren said.THE NUMBERS: The Spartans have lost 11 straight nonconference games again FBS opponents in the regular season since beating BYU 20-14 at home in 2012. ... Iowa State has won all three meeting between the teams, who last faced off in 1980. ... The Cyclones entered 2016 with just six career starts among its offensive line, third-fewest in the nation. ... Iowa State was listed as a 6-point favorite as of Thursday. The Cyclones will likely be underdogs the rest of the way, save for a trip to Kansas on Nov. 12.THE LAST WORD: The kids are starting to understand what our expectations are. Its not just about winning and losing football games. Yes, thats very important. We all know that. Nobody is more competitive than I am. But how you win football games is what Im interested in, Campbell said. Everyone in this building demands that what it looks like (during the week) in preparing to be successful is put into not only win a game, but to build a program.---Follow Luke Meredith on Twitter at www.twitter.com/LukeMeredithAP---Online: AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Marlins Jerseys Authentic . Walcott is available for Saturdays home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team. Authentic Jose Fernandez Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. http://www.cheapmarlinsjerseys.us/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey/ . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. HOUSTON -- No. 21 Baylor is looking to improve in its last tuneup game before conference play when the Bears visit Rice on Friday night.The Bears (2-0) beat SMU 40-13 on Saturday, but were disappointed with their start in that game that was tied 6-6 at halftime. They dont want to get off to a slow start against the Owls (0-3) in their first road game of the season. Baylor coach Jim Grobe said playing away from home for the first time makes him anxious, especially as it relates to the teams younger players.Besides playing in a hostile environment its just getting young guys to focus. Youre in an unfamiliar setting, youre in a different hotel, youre liable to find the youngest guys out in the hallway throwing ice at each other and running up and down the hallways and doing crazy stuff, Grobe said. We are not going on vacation, its not spring break, were going to play football.The Owls hope to avoid starting 0-3 for the second time in three seasons before Conference USA play begins on Sept. 24 against North Texas.Baylor aims to start 3-0 for the sixth straight season, which would be the longest such streak in school history. They open Big 12 play hosting Oklahoma State next weekend.Quarterback Seth Russell led Baylors second-half surge last weekend by throwing for one touchdown and running for another to start the third quarter and help the Bears pull away. Those scores were part of a performance where he threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 43 yards and another score.Some other things to know about the Baylor-Rice game:STEWART SHOWS OFFBaylor safety Orion Stewart showed his skills against SMU, finishing with eight tackles and two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. It was a performance that earned him Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.He played really, really well and had a good amount of tackles, was a good leader back there and kind of ccalmed some of the younger guys down, Grobe said. Marlins Jerseys Outlet. Its always good when the young guys see the old guys step up because it kind of encourages them to play better.MISTAKE-PRONE OWLSThe Owls have been mistake-prone in their first two games and have fumbled four times and quarterback Tyler Stehling has thrown three interceptions.Offensively, were really struggling, Rice coach David Bailiff said. I think its that we have young men trying so hard that were making too many mistakes. We have got to find a way where they get their confidence back, they get their trust back.SUCCESS AGAINST RICEBaylor has won seven in a row against Rice and hasnt lost to the Owls since 1992. The Bears are 48-30-2 overall in the series and have been particularly successful in Houston, where theyve won eight of the past nine. The Owls havent had much success against ranked opponents and their last win over one came on Oct. 11, 1997, in a 27-14 victory over No. 21 BYU.RUSHING RECORDBaylor running back Shock Linwood is closing in on the schools all-time rushing record. Linwood has 156 yards rushing this season, putting him just 48 yards shy of breaking Walter Abercrombies career record of 3,665 yards. The senior needs one rushing touchdown to tie Alfred Anderson for the school-record of 35 career rushing touchdowns.NO FAN OF FRIDAY GAMESBailiff isnt exactly excited about playing on Friday night instead of having the usual Saturday game.This is just me growing up in this state. Friday night should be for high school football, he said. Saturday is college and Sunday and Monday night should be for NFL. The world is now out of whack. Were playing every night of the week. Thats just not how I was raised.----Online: APs college football site at http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts From China Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Hoodies ' ' '
