    Greatest home game ending in a loss all time

    was for sure the 1984 match up against #2 Oklahoma Sooners. First night game ever at Jack Trice....thought the lights they brought in from musco were sweet, first game ever on espn that night. Iowa State takes a 7-3 halftime lead and controls the second half until just a few minutes left in the 4th when Ou scores on a great option pitch from Danny Bradley to Lydell Carr.....final 12-10 OU...also first time ever the wave was done at Jack Trice. Oh and freshman LB Jeff Braswell was amazing the whole game!


    Just a mile & a 8th left!

    Good to know.


    (I missed that game because I was 5 years old.)

    That was a great game. OU had Tony Casillas and a freshman LB named Brian Bosworth.

    The game against Texas and Major Applewhite was also a great home game despite the loss.

    Kind of a depressing topic.

    93 loss to Iowa. We got an onside kick then Bob Utter fumbled and there was all kinds of talk about his small hands. ISU should have ended "the streak" that year.


    Thanks now I am looking for a bridge to jump off!

    How many other school's fans discuss their "greatest lost"? Duke football? Toledo? San Jose State? Tough topic...

    "Greatest home game ending in a loss?"

    Such a beast does not exist.

    Heck of a game, but "greatest loss" is sort of like "favorite fungus." None for me, thanks.

    Ugh. This is a terrible topic.

    That said, in my lifetime it's probably the 2007 OU game.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Least painfull kick in the nuts?


    The OU game the OP described seems more excruciating than most losses because they had a chance to win it and blew it late.

    1999 K-State game (was at least great for the 1st half). What a painful 2nd half that was.
