AMES, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Iowa State Cyclones have had pretty good success to start the season, with wins over Tulsa and Iowa.
But, the Cyclones aren't satisfied as they welcome FCS opponent Western Illinois to Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday.
The Leathernecks (2-0) are members of the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
As a program, Iowa State is 36-4-3 all-time against teams from the MVC.
Granted the Cyclones have been pretty dominant the first two weeks of the season, they're looking for continued improvement against Western Illinois.
"I think I've shared it in here before that you get your most improvement from week one to week two," Head Coach Paul Rhoads said. "I think it's a bunch of hogwash. I think you've got an opportunity to improve every week and some weeks you're going to make bigger gains."
"It was definitely up there. It was defiantly one of the top performances, but I'm looking for even better performances out of us and I think we can do that," linebacker Jake Knott added.
The Cyclones and Leathernecks kick off at 7 p.m.
