Campos looking to ace Cy-Hawk test when facing Ott

September 8, 2015

As an offensive lineman, it's hard not to find yourself at the center of attention of the Cy-Hawk rivalry.

This weekend, the Cyclones take on the Hawkeyes. And Jake Campos knows he had quite a bit of pressure on him going into the showdown.

Campos is likely to draw Iowa's Drew Ott as his main assignment, which would't necessarily seem like a fun task at first glance. But the tackle is actually excited for the duty.

“It’s going to be a really fun challenge for me because he is a lot of the things I kind of struggle in,” Campos said. “Doing that and playing against him will really make me a better player.”

Campos, who put on seven pounds of muscle partly for edge rushers like this, thinks he was what it takes ti contain Ott.

“He is a powerful guy,” Campos said. “I’m still working on putting on the mass. I think I’ve got a lot better hang of it this year so it will be fun to see where I’m actually at.”
