After giving up 34 unanswered points to North Dakota State, the Iowa State defense had to take a step back and assess where they were at as a unit.

“Huge improvement,” Miller said. “We had a player meeting last night and I talked to them about how we didn’t have a lot of energy last week and we weren’t playing together, winning our one on one battles and how we need to come out with more fire and have more fun playing the game of football and we did that this weekend. We played as a unit. We will finish games. We have to finish the games.”
