    Top 25 after the weekend?

    Big game today! With a win we could be in the top 25! Hoping for a great game!

    One question, do we cheer for TT or Ok? TT helps with our loss not looking bad but hurts because they will jump into top 25 too.

    We dont deserve it even with a win. If we get another one convincingly the week after then I would say its worth it.

    We will not be in the top 25 if we win this game...Unless 15 teams directly in front of us lose.

    Re: Top 25 after the weekend?

    We won't make it because the voters will not see it as ISU beating #15 TCU... they will see it as TCU losing a game without their starting QB. We will not get credit

    Re: Top 25 after the weekend?

    No because if we win it'll be because TCU's starting QB didn't play, not because Iowa State is the better team. Just how national perception works sadly.

    Re: Top 25 after the weekend?

    We would have to win pretty convincingly to be ranked IMO. Would be awesome though.

    I don't think you understand how the voting works. The voters don't look into detail when looking at scores.

    Yes, we will get some top 25 votes if we win.

    Re: Top 25 after the weekend?

    Questions like this only matter if you are in the National Championship hunt. Which we aren't. I really don't care about being ranked at this point in the season. Now, if we get to 7 or 8 wins, then I would love to see ISU ranked at the end of the year. But only because it's one more thing you can talk to recruits about.

    Everyone knows Pachall is out. They won't know about what happens on the field today, but they do know he isn't playing.
