    I just realized...

    Iowa State is the only team in the Big 12 North with a win over a Top 25 team in either the AP or USA Today poll.

    Chances are they'll be top 25 for sure headed into the championship game if they win their last two games to be 9-3.

    Sounds great but NE wasn't ranked when we beat them.

    If we beat USC this weekend, would you say, "we just beat the #3 ranked team in the nation"??? (bc that's what they were ranked in the first week)

    +1

    And different players.........

    Question for the person that made the original statement. Would you rather?:

    1. Beat a team ranked in the top ten in the first week and watch them lose the rest of their games and close the season unranked.
    2. Beat an unranked team and watch them win out and finish the season ranked.

    If Nebraska winds up a top 25 team at the end of the season, guess what? We played and beat a top 25 team this year.

    I thought you were siding with us beating a ranked team. That's why I had to throw that logic out there. If you were agreeing that we technically haven't beaten a ranked team this year, than sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Well I would rather wait until the season was over... look at the rankings and see how many teams we beat.
