    What will be the first major prime time game in Jack Trice Stadium?

    I've had ESPN on all afternoon hearing the build-up to the Texas vs. Texas Tech game in Lubbock Saturday night on ABC. It got me thinking, if there is a major hyped prime time game like this in the coming years, what is it? We've never really had a game like this IMO, but there have been some big prime time games in Jack Trice Stadium just none that have been over-hyped.

    Here are the HOME schedules for the next 5 years. I'm only interested in the game taking place in Ames, not other cities. (Note: I also did not include next year's home game at Arrowhead.)

    2009
    Thu, Sep 03 North Dakota State
    Sat, Sep 12 Iowa
    Sat, Sep 26 Army
    Sat, Oct 17 Baylor (Homecoming) *
    Sat, Nov 07 Oklahoma State *
    Sat, Nov 14 Colorado *

    2010
    Sat, Sep 04 Northern Illinois
    Sat, Sep 18 Utah
    Sat, Sep 25 Northern Iowa
    Sat, Oct 02 Texas Tech *
    Sat, Oct 30 Kansas (Homecoming) *
    Sat, Nov 06 Nebraska *
    Sat, Nov 20 Missouri *

    2011
    Sat, Sep 10 Iowa
    Sat, Sep 24 Northern Iowa
    Sat, Oct 01 Kansas State *
    Sat, Oct 15 Oklahoma (Homecoming) *
    Sat, Oct 22 Texas *
    Sat, Nov 12 Colorado *

    2012
    Sat, Sep 01 Tulsa
    Sat, Sep 15 Western Illinois
    Sat, Sep 22 Western Kentucky
    Sat, Sep 29 Texas A&M *
    Sat, Oct 06 Kansas *
    Sat, Oct 20 Nebraska *
    Sat, Nov 17 Missouri *

    2013
    Sat, Aug 31 Northern Iowa
    Sat, Sep 14 Iowa
    Sat, Sep 28 Kansas State *
    Sat, Oct 12 Baylor *
    Sat, Nov 02 Oklahoma State *
    Sat, Nov 09 Colorado *

    I personally have my eye on those back-to-back weeks against Oklahoma and Texas in 2011. I say we beat Oklahoma on Oct. 15th to have a Top 10 Gene Chizik vs. Mack Brown showdown on Oct. 22. Gameday will finally make its way to Ames.

    What do you guys think? Of course, there's the choice that there will never be a game like this in Ames or it will happen later than 5 years.

    I think the Shrine Bowl for high school all-stars is played at night.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Hopefully next year vs. Okie State if things go our way. Next year should be Chizik's breakout year.

    I fear that if we don't have this kind of game within the next 5 years, we may never have one because our program will have sunk so low. That being said, I'll say TTU in 2010.

    On the off chance that we can finish this season with a little promise and start strong next year (probably have to be undefeated or 1-loss leading up to Okie State) that could be the game. ESPN could bill it as "Payback for the one that got away" referring to the ever so close but yet so painful loss from November 1st, 2008. Pregame highlights from 2008's game could include 5 takeaways by ISU (3 by LJ, 1 to the house), and a recovered onside kick in the final minutes by ISU only to fall painfully short yet again. Ok, I'll put down the cardinal-and-gold crack pipe now.

    A win next year in Iowa City would be sooo sweet.

    As far as a major prime time game in JTS, we would have to be ranked or have a winning big 12 record against a ranked big 12 team. Which call me pessimisstic but I don't see that happening until 2010 or 2011 at the VERY earliest. The only game I could possibly see it being next year is Okie State, but I don't think we'll be quite good enough by then to make it the primetime game.

    More likely, there won't be a primetime game withing the next 5 years at JTS unless we get amazingly good, but I could definitely see us in a primetime AWAY game in that span.

    It was on ABC regional and it was not really a "hyped" game. It was a drifting away Nebraska team vs. an Iowa State team that had escaped against a few opponents.

    I'm talking gameday and the whole bit.

    Bad scheduling. You would have beat them last year. I have my doubts about next year.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.

    Rep to you. _1. Maybe they should change the thread title to the NEXT major prime time game....


    IOWA-ISU 2011. Oops. No, we'll be on sometime in 2010, Austen's senior year.
