Friday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, Iowa State has opened up a 6-0 over Rutgers after one quarter of the Pinstripe Bowl. The Cyclones' senior kicker, who had entered the game having made field goals of 40 yards or longer in his four of his last five games, banged in a pair from 40 and 45 yards to give Iowa State the lead.
Iowa State quarterback Jared Barnett has produced mixed results in the passing game thus far, but Rutgers' Chas Dodd has established the passing game with 80 yards on seven completions. Despite being down on the scoreboard, the Scarlet Knights have put up 118 total offensive yards to the Cyclones' 82. Rutgers has engineered a pair of drives of 50 yards or greater, but have thus far been unable to capitalize.
