Iowa State 26, Akron 13
Iowa State got its first win of the season beating Akron 26-13 in an emotional day at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. Players from both teams stood on the sideline and joined the crowd in a moment of silence before the start of the game to honor I-S-U student and athlete Celia Barquin Arozamena. She was murdered Monday morning at the Coldwater Linds golf course that sits just east of the football stadium. Cyclone coach Matt Campbell talked about it in his first remarks after the game.
He says it is something they saw earlier this year when storms and tornadoes hit.
Akron game into the game at 2-0 after an upset win over Northwestern, took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter before I-S-U tied it up and then went ahead on a field goal and never gave back the lead. But the Cyclones had several drives stall and had to settle for three field goals in the fourth quarter. Campbell says they had too many mistakes in the second half.
Cyclone quarterback Zeb Noland also talked about the emotion at the start of the game.
Noland threw for 233 yards and one touchdown, while David Montgomery rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown. He says they must do a better job of not settling for three points.
The Cyclones take their 1-2 record on the road Saturday to face T-C-U.
