westerberg have a recap. josh the iowa offense was really ballard tonight's game 198 yards rushing to one and 37 passing and what a game for the senior matt vandeberg with seven catches for 129 yards. he is faster than people think yeah he is white but it really fast and a lot of people think he is not as fast he's a trustworthy guy he is going to be where he needs tto be and i can't count him to be their. and i just to the off-season now that we have been together for a full year it is really nice to have that is a pass we work on all the time in practice because i know it turns up in games and so when you put get that situation in a game we are able to convert. those were beautiful plays and i just really well thrown balls and a nice nice catches he had that one drop which i know that was too easy probably if you can make some plays like that that's gonna make you tougher to defend. and what a night for vandeberg not only did
field right after the game he proposed to laura bulanda for intern ifor kcrg tv nine and i guess she said yes yes that was amazing i don't have any other words for it. wasn't quite as fun in the iowa state locker room scott no the players talk about how to keep it from falling apart right now campbell said you know i don't know my quarterback is it still joe lanning but jacob park played and he needs to look at that. and see what's going to happen he even mentioned mike warren michael needs to step his game up didn't just fn alot of competition in the back field so things not great at iowa state right now they need to go back to the drawing board and see what they got for next week i thought they really controlled the first half of the football game their ere spits were we were able to get to get ourselves get some momentum and as soon as we got any momentum you know it es penalties a self- destructing the kind of took ourselves out of it you just don't walking and all of a sudden everything changes. night i think the one thing we do have is we are really good kids we got to learn how to play
era and i feel like people thought was going to win games but it starts in the lockeroom that is where the spark needs to come from. it's fair to say the compition might get tougher next week with five-time fcs champion coming in town. you don't win five national titles in a row without being a pretty good football program the are going to bring in some great athletes and maybe give iowa a little bit more test next week right back to you josh. .. and i'm joined right now by the legend himself, chuck long, for the sunday night spotlight. he's our the big ten. chuck, what a routing by iowa, 42-3 over iowa state. four of the past five meetings have been decided by six points or less... what impressed you most about iowa in their dominance against the cyclones? "both the offensive line and defensive line really controlled the game and the line of scrimmage. starting with the offensive line, they just came off the ball, they were in great unison, their pad level was low and they just blew the iowa state defensive line
set the tone early. and that's usually where it's won when you look at games." speaking of the offensive line, james daniels was out at center. so the hawkeyes brought in sophomore lucas legrand who's a dubuque senior grad. how do you think he did when you had a chance to see him run the offense? "i don't think they missed a beat. they had a couple of snaps early, the quarterback-center exchange was a little rough at first, but they got in a groove again. after a while, you didn't know who was in there because it was such a smooth operation. but i thought they handled themselves very well." the passing game was something we saw a lot of on saturday. matt vandeberg with another big night, 129 yards, a 25 yard reverse and he also got engaged after the game. vandeberg is really showing that he's capable of being a no. 1
their go to guy. i think he and c.j. have good chemistry. they've obviously been together longer than some of the other receivers have with c.j. it's nice to have that when you're a quarterback... what i love about matt is he attacks the ball. some receivers wait for the ball; he attacks the ball when it's in the air and he attacks it at its highest point, which is good coaching." let's talk about the defense. the big thing was covering allen lazard. he still had 7 catches for 111 yards, but he wasn't a big factor in the game. he had the one big play that led to a field goal. and the defense stood its ground on that drive because the cyclones had it first and goal at the 10. what impressed you most about the defense? "one of the things they did better in this game was get off blocks. first game, they weren't getting off blocks like they should've been and that's
him on friday. i thought they really got off the blocks all across the board. and josey being back makes a world a difference." chuck long joining us for the sunday night spotlight. we'll be right back, stay with tv9. ... t we asked u.s. cellular customers with our strong signal. you posted from the seashore. you shared from your hike. you showed us this sunset. you posted from the farm. and you adventured way out there... a lot of amazing places. ?? u.s. cellular put towers where the other guys don't. so join our network, and start sharing your moments
