Down the Pipe & Natty Lite - Episode 23: Alamo Bowl Preview with CougCenter and Signing Day Recap

A JAM-PACKED episode with all the Alamo Bowl preview and analysis you’ll need to get to you to San Antonio.

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

With the Alamo Bowl just a week away, Levi, Cole, and Marchie are back to bring you a HUGE preview for the game. Washington State’s high flying air raid offense has been torching the Pac-12 all season on the arm of Gardner Minshew, but the stout Cyclone defense is built to stop the air raid offenses of the Big 12. Which will break first, the unstoppable force, or the immovable object?

We also recap all of the signees from the early signing period. The theme: SIZE and SPEED. The crown jewels of the class are a Jirehl Brock and Breece Hall, a pair of top-10 running backs in the country that will have an opportunity to contribute next fall, but the class has a ton of athleticism from top to bottom. With this class including three running backs in total, what does that signal in regards to the impending draft decision for David Montgomery? If David returns, that would make SEVEN scholarship running backs on the roster. That’s an incredibly loaded group of backs, but how you you distribute carries to make sure everyone is happy? No matter what happens, this a good problem to have.

Then, we sat down with Michael Preston from CougCenter, our Washington State counterpart, to get the lowdown on the Cougars, and gives us some predictions for the game.

This is a longer episode, but it’s absolutely jam-packed with great Iowa State football content.
