    Release: CYCLONES GET SECOND ESPN FOOTBALL GAME IN 2011




    AMES, Iowa – For the first time in school history, the Iowa State football team will play two regular-season games across ESPN networks.

    The 2011 Iowa State home game against Oklahoma State on Friday night, Nov. 18 was originally set for Saturday Nov. 19, but ESPN offered the schools national TV exposure on Friday.

    “Earning a second national TV contest on ESPN is important for the growth of our program,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “This is also another opportunity for our recruits and alums to see the Cyclones play on national television.”

    Earlier this year, Iowa State’s non-conference game at Connecticut was shifted to Friday, Sept. 16. Pollard said Iowa State generally prefers to play on Saturday. But, each opportunity merits study and discussion.

    “In this particular case, there is no conflict with the regular season for high school football in our state,” Pollard said. “It’s the same as last fall when our Missouri home game was played the same evening as the state finals.”

    Pollard also added that Iowa State closes for Thanksgiving on Nov. 21, so moving the Oklahoma State game a day earlier eased concerns for students heading home for the holiday.

    “Our department met with student leaders and the President’s leadership team to discuss the opportunity, and the feedback was that playing Friday night was beneficial in regards to the student body’s travel plans,” Pollard said.

    Nice! More exposure, more money!

I don’t care where you come from, whether it’s Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I don’t care about any of that… But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    I'm kinda saddened because playing on Friday is for the MAC, but I do think it'll help increase the student attendence, so overall it's not a bad thing.

    That's multiple short weeks this year though, which is tough with so many new starters. I'd rather being doing that with a veteran team.

    It shows that CPR, and the boys have the program heading in the right direction. A few years ago this would of never even been a thought.

    Hopefully we'll actually compete with these guys. They've been drubbing us lately.

    Or extra days of rest for the games against Texas and KSU. This is ESPN, the players will be jacked either way.

    Ummmmm no it's not. ESPN is starting to fill that Friday night slot with more games from BCS conferences (Big 12, Big East, Pac 10, also BYU). When the MAC is on ESPN, its stuck mostly playing Tuesday and Wednesday night games

    By the time we get to the Oklahoma State game, the new starters won't be that new.

    Great for exposure. I remember watching Oklahoma State play at Louisiana Tech last year on a Friday night because it was the only thing on that night. On a Saturday I would never watch that game or care about it.
