AMES (KWWL) -- The Iowa State Cyclones opened the 2010 College Football season with a 27-10 victory over Northern Illinois at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.

Alexander Robinson rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns including a 63 yard run to paydirt and Cyclone quarterback Austen Arnaud produced 310 yards of total offense as Iowa State fought off a determined Husky rally in the second half.

The young Iowa State defense came up with three interceptions to thwart several NIU scoring opportunities.
