The Kansas Jayhawks and the Iowa State Cyclones are trading blows with one another in Jack Trice Stadium as Paul Rhoads' bunch from Ames lead the boys from Lawrence 10-7.
In a game where both teams have performed equally on the offensive side of the ball, the reason why Iowa State is in the lead can be pointed at one key state. Third down conversions. The Cyclones are 5-of-8 on third downs offensively, while the ISU defense has slowed down Kansas to just 2-of-7 on third down.
Aaron Horne scored on an 18-yard run in the second half for Iowa State to give the Cyclones the 10-7 advantage. Jared Barnett has contributed for 152 of Iowa State's 169 total yards thus far in the game. KU QB Jordan Webb is just 6/11 passing for 73 yards.
Iowa State will receive the ball in the second half as Jayhawks' head coach Turner Gill will try and find a way to help his team get their first Big 12 conference victory of the season.
