Iowa State dominates OSU

The ISU football team took the strategy of a ball control offense to

a whole new level in a 28-14 victory over Oklahoma State Saturday

at Jack Trice Stadium.

The Cyclones owned a dominant time of possession advantage,

holding the ball for over one second over 40 minutes. All four

Cyclones scoring drives reached double digits in plays and totaled

28 minutes.

“This is good solid win,” ISU head coach Dan McCarney said.

“We had some tremendous drives. It was a great job by the whole


The Cyclones opened up a 28-7 lead in the fourth quarter and

tailback Ennis Haywood helped run out the clock. Haywood racked

up 196 yards on the day, including 125 in the second half, and

scored three touchdowns.

“Ennis Haywood is a special back,” McCarney said. “He’s as fine

a fourth quarter back as there is in the country.”

Seneca Wallace had a great all-around game after struggling the

last two weeks. The Cyclone signal caller finished 16-of-19 for 150

yards through the air and added 68 rushing yards.

The Cyclone defense gave up just 42 rushing yards as the

Cowboys went to their air attack for a majority of the game.

The Cyclones have won five straight home games, the first time

the team has accomplished that feat since 1981. Overall Iowa

State has won seven of its last 10 games.
