    Any news on the game, is it going to be played?

    I'm up here in the tundra of north central Iowa and all the school are out and some of the main highways are closed because of zero visibility. What's it like in Ames?

    It's just recently gotten bad up here. Snow and very windy, visibility beginning to decrease.

    Why does it have to almost always snow when ISU has a home game?

    The snow is starting to pick up and its really windy here in West Des Moines.

    I'm sure they will play the game but attendance will suffer badly.

    The radar shows a very thin storm... we haven't even seen the storm come through yet. It should clear up by mid afternoon, though.

    I thought it was mandated by the conference that visiting teams are to be on site the night before a game so games aren't cancelled by travel conditions....or at least it would be rare. Someone correct me if they know otherwise but I think that is the rule.

    I always thought that if the visiting team was in town already then the game would be played.

    This isnt High School. The game will go on. As long as both teams are in Ames. We know the good guys are in town, not sure about Colorado.

    Colorado got here yesterday, so the game won't be cancelled.

    Re: Any news on the game, is it going to be played?

    isnt it a NCAA rule that the opposing team has to be in town 24 hours prior to the game played, barring weather conditions? ive heard that somewhere, but i was just curious what the truth is in that...

    I don't think it's 24 hours, because there have been early Saturday games (11:00) where the team didn't get there until 4 or 5 on Friday...? I don't really know what the rule is though.

    There is a rule in place about it though, isn't there?
