    Biggest win in school history

    Beating #2 Oklahoma State will be the biggest win in team history if we can do it. No reason not to pack the house, dress warm and cheer loud ON SENIOR DAY. Here is a list of Iowa States senior class:

    Matt Tau'fo'ou
    Darius Reynolds
    Kelichi Osemele
    Leonard Johnson
    Lattimer
    Pat Neal
    Hayworth Hicks
    Earl Brooks
    Anthony Young
    Stephen Rump
    Grant Mahoney
    Ricky Howard
    Te'Ran Benton
    Ried Branderhorst
    Darius Darks
    Zach Guyer

    and others as well

    The guys in Bold i believe were Rhoads recruits
    Pat Neal was a McCarney recruit

    Beating OSU will not overtake 11/14/1992 as the biggest win in our history. It will be huge though

    I think if we beat OSU it'll be the biggest win in school history. Or if we beat OU on the road.

    completely disagree. NU was ranked #7 and already had a loss that year while we were 2-7. In contrast to beating an undefeated #2 ranked OSU team where the win would also put us in a bowl game is a much more impressive victory. Don't let your NU Hate bias how much better a win next Saturday would actually be for the program.

    Ricky Howard is redshirting and I believe he will return for 2012 as redshirt senior.

    Yes it will. Beating a team that is 10-0 and ranked number 2 would be higher than a Nebraska win in the Walden era. If we were to win this would eliminate OSU out of national title contention which would be huge.

    Re: Biggest win in school history

    The highest ranked team that ISU has ever beaten was #7 -- 3 times.

    1976: ISU 21 - Mizz 17
    1985: ISU 15 - OSU 10
    1992: ISU 19 - Neb 10

    Considering OSU is on track for the BCS title game, televised nationally on ESPN, and it would get ISU bowl eligible I think it'd be much bigger than the Nebraska win in 1992. The '92 win over Nebraska was big but little was done with it as ISU finished 4-7 and Walden was gone 3 years later.

    A crappy team beating a highly ranked team isn't the same as becoming bowl eligible by beating an undefeated #2 team on national TV. Not really even that close.

    Double-edged sword, because that win meant Walden kept his job for 2 more seasons. Don't forget, ISU lost to UNI in 1992.

    Won't overtake? It will lap it 100 times. Much bigger and more meaningful if it happens.
