    Top 25?

    Can we FINALLY break back into the top 25 this year? I know its kinda premature but what do you think it would take? Iowa received quite a few votes last week..

    3-0 should get votes.
    4-0 should be in the T25.

    After ISU beats UCONN, there will be a ranked matchup in Ames between Texas and ISU.

    Don't think so. I think we would need to be 4-0 to be ranked and go into a big ranked conference matchup in Waco between the Bears and Cyclones. (Who would have thought those words would ever be typed five years ago???)

    Agreed, 4-0. After we beat the **** out of Texas, we'll be ranked. Probably 23rd in the nation.

    Re: Top 25?

    How funny would it be if College Gameday was in Waco?

    Edit: High profile matchups that day include OU-UT, tOSU-Nebby, and Florida-LSU.

    Re: Top 25?

    Beating Iowa won't likely even get us votes, beating UConn may give us a few if we come out and beat them handily. We won't be ranked going into the Texas game, but if we beat Texas (given they are still ranked when we do) then we can worry about a spot in the Top 25...

    Agreed. If we start 4-0, then we START getting votes. Go 5-0 and we're in the top 25.

    I disagree, top 25 at 4-0. We might be the only school in the BCS with three wins against BCS opponents after week 4 ..... But we are looking WAY to far ahead.
