The Cyclones (1-1) head on the road to play the Rebels (0-2). UNLV lost its season opener to Eastern Washington in overtime, then fell to No. 19 Arizona State last week.
The Cyclones had four turnovers last week, including three interceptions from quarterback Brock Purdy, who was benched in the fourth quarter.
As the Cyclones’ offense looks to moves past its mistakes, Iowa State can lean on its defense, which ranks eighth in the nation with just 224 yards allowed per game. Last week, they held Iowa to 173 yards and allowed the Hawkeyes to convert just four of their 15 third downs.
This will be the sixth time Iowa State and UNLV meet on the football field. Their last meeting in 2008 was the Rebels' first win in the series, a 34-31 victory in Las Vegas.
