AMES, Iowa — Kansas center Gavin Howard says to keep your eyes on Iowa State’s No. 52.
KU’s game against ISU — 7 p.m. Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium — most likely will hinge on whether the Jayhawks’ can get Cyclone linebacker Jeremiah George blocked.
“The more we can get a hat on No. 52,” Howard said, “the better we will run the ball.”
The biggest difference for KU offensively in a 31-19 victory over West Virginia last week was its ability to get yards on the ground, as it racked up a season-high 376 rushing yards on 66 carries.
