    Most anticipated ISU football game ever?

    Maybe, maybe not - but it definitely ranks right up there. The bye week nearly killed me - time to whip some Longhorn ***.

    Go Cyclones!

    Yes, because it's the first game since NIU last year that I'm attending!

    Let's go Cyclones!

    Re: Most anticipated ISU football game ever?

    I want to say the Nebraska game back in 2002 was more anticipated than this one. Both teams rated, ISU was getting serious national respect, and there was just this energy in Ames all week. Oh yeah - we also laid the wood to the Cornholes that day.

    But yeah, this ranks right up there.

    Re: Most anticipated ISU football game ever?

    I think the bye week really amplified the hype for this game.

    It's gotta be right up there in terms of being the biggest game. This could be a program changer.

    I can't wait!

    Insight Bowl v. Pitt would have that title, I think. People had been waiting for that game for almost 30 years.

    The most national anticipated game we have been apart of is when we were #9 and played OU in Norman a while back. The circus came to town that day.......

    I was thinking this too, but you're not supposed to actually say it.

    Re: Most anticipated ISU football game ever?

    Yeah, feels like a bowl game to me. Playing UT is always big but with all the crap going down in the B12 and that is all being caused by UT has me psyched I would like nothing better to beat the crap out of them. If we win this game it will be the best cyclone victory ever. In my opinion, it puts us on the map and on the way to a real bowl game. Its gonna be fun!

    Biggest since 2002. Hopefully we don't crap out at the end of season like that year.

    Re: Most anticipated ISU football game ever?

    With all the hype, I think a win sets the tone for this program for years. It would prove we are ready for the next step. Also if we win today, I expect a few more sell outs this year.

    No maybe about it for me. Until now the most anticipated game I can remember was the 1976 Nebraska game. I fully expect to hear the loudest crowd in Jack Trice history tonight.
    And if we win, next week will be off the charts!!!
