    TX has played like Poo so far against subpar teams.

    Oklahoma- Bob Stoops loves to run up the score and has said that he wants to do so to ISU. Plus, they are the "team to beat" this year in the BIG XII

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    I pick Oklahoma, because it seems they have run some of our seasons into the ground in past years notably what could have been in 2002. Plus, Bob Stoops is a hawkeye at heart.

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    I picked Oklahoma since I'm not sure Texas will even be ranked by the time we play them. They are not that good and could easily be coming off a loss to K-State and a throttling by Oklahoma.

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    I think OU will win the Big XII, it'd be nice to say we beat the conference champs.. It still somehow feels like a pipedream however..

    Oklahoma. Beating a team that could potentially play for the nat'l championship? It would be the greatest upset in Iowa State history, hands down. Well, maybe the win over Nebraska in '92 is still better.

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    While I know OU is the team to beat a victory there would probably be viewed as a total fluke at this stage. However, a victory over a struggling power like Texas will be similar to some of our recent victories over Nebraska. It will appear to be a step in our progression to get better with a victory against a solid opponent. Plus I'm sure it would be sweet for Gene.

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    I picked Texas just because I'd like the Big 12 to win the NC this year, and OU is the only team to do that.

    Texas for Gene's sake. Beating Oklahoma is not going to happen, unless they all get food poisoning the night before the game

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    OU because...

    1. They look like a better team.
    2. People would put an * next to a win over Texas stating it was only because Chizik had inside knowledge, his rivalry game
    3. OU has embarrassed us since the beginning of time.

    Re: You get one chance at an upset this year...

    Oklahoma
    1) They are the best team in the Big 12
    2) Texas, as it has been said, is having a down year (comparatively)
    3) A win against Oklahoma would produce instant credibility to this new regime
    4) I am actually going to be at the OU v. ISU game and I would love for it to NOT be a blow out
