AMES, Iowa (AP) — Grant Rohach might be getting his chance to try to reverse Iowa State’s free fall through the Big 12 Conference. rohach, a redshirt freshman, is listed as the No. 1 quarterback on the Cyclones’ depth chart for Saturday’s home game against TCU, ahead of season-long starter Sam Richardson. Coach Paul Rhoads says that doesn’t necessarily mean Rohach will take the team’s first snap. Rhoads says it all depends on how the quarterbacks practice this week and Richardson very well could end up starting.

Whatever Rhoads decides, the Cyclones (1-7, 0-5 Big 12) need a big lift at the position. They’ve been outscored 170-41 in the last three games and the offense is struggling just to make a first down.
