    Which game is tougher

    With Texas out of the top 25 for the first time in forever, do fans feel that playing Texas on the road is a tougher opponent or Top 10 Ranked Utah at JTS?

    I still feel like Texas is the tougher game.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Which game is tougher

    I think Texas would crush Utah. Therefore, my vote is that the Texas game is tougher.

    Re: Which game is tougher

    Texas no doubt. The ISU to Texas talent gap is much MUCH larger than ISU to Utah.

    Austin is a tough place to play.

    Re: Which game is tougher

    Well we haven't lost a home game yet this year and we play Utah at home and Texas @ Austin, so I am going to go with Texas as the more difficult game.

    Re: Which game is tougher

    I don't care where Texas is in the ratings - ISU has never beaten them. It will always be the tougher game until someone on the team believes they can win.

    I don't think so. It would atleast be a good game. Texas is down this year. Changing their offense was just a bad idea.

    Texas... on the road, plus the mental factor (it seems to me that Texas and Oklahoma have an intimidation factor against the North teams year after year, especially Oklahoma).

    Many of those wins came with different players than the current guys.

    I'm not saying this game in not winnable. I think ISU has a great shot to knock off Texas this year. I'm just saying it's not going to be easy.

    No way. Utah > Texas this year. I still think it's a worse match-up for us against Texas than us against Utah because of the relative talent gaps.

    Wow, I don't know that Texas would crush us... UCLA lost to K-State and then beat the crap out of Texas in their stadium. But if my vote counts I would say Texas is the much tougher opponent anyway... Travelling to Austin to get a W is no easy task. Good luck! This is the year to get a W from them.
