    NCAA tournament and bowl game the last 2 years

    I know we have done this, but are there even 8 other schools in the nation that can brag about this?

    even more impressive is this factoid-

    how many teams have been to the ncaa tournament, bowl games, and had losing records in football in the last 2 seasons

    Don't think it is too rare. Purple Kansas and okla st can both make the same claim from the big 12.

    Don't know, but I'm proud of the Cyclones. They hung in there and won the games they had to to get in the tourney.

    Re: NCAA tournament and bowl game the last 2 years

    I think there are several teams that have achieved this. But I would be curious to see how many 2 year spells ISU has had like this.
