    College Football News - ISU to Insight

    Scout.com: 2009-2010 Bowl Projections ... Nov. 22


    College Football News' most recent projections (Nov. 22) have Iowa State going to the Insight Bowl - and that only has ONE team in the BCS and also looks like it has Kansas beating Missouri. I'm not sure that I agree with this but it is possible. If two teams get to the BCS, I've got a feeling it will be the Insight Bowl.

    Great location, good matchup. Only downside is that it is the only bowl game on NFL Network, which wouldn't be the greatest as far as exposure goes.

    Re: College Football News - ISU to Insight

    There could be some thinking behind close doors about getting Iowa and Iowa State down there at the same time. Would the Iowa fan go early and watch ISU play....maybe......would the ISU fan stay late and watch Iowa....maybe....might be more of a stretch since its a few days after the New Year. They may hope winter Iowans down there might go to both games.....who knows how these closed door deals work

    I really hopes this one happens it is the one I will be able to attend. But I have checked airfares recently out of cedar rapids to phoenix and they are pricey right now. Even Allegiant air is pricey to Mesa. Their rates will go down though if they add more flights. Does Des Moines have direct flights to Mesa with Allegiant yet?

    I would stay and goto the Iowa game if they were down there as well. Specially since I have a place to stay that doesn't cost anything and all my family is there.

    never fly out of Cedar Rapids...make the drive to Moline if a flight works time wise

    Anytime but around christmas and new years right now it is around $200 round trip out of Cedar Rapids to Mesa. I have to think it is because those flights are reaching capacity. They will likely add more flights if both Iowa and Iowa State are going there.

    There's no way we can finish 6th, is there? I'm sure it's all dependent on the OU vs OSU game.

    Re: College Football News - ISU to Insight

    The projection of one B12 team to BCS and ISU landing Insight was not adding up to me. I found out why. They left OU out of the bowls. I assume it's a mistake unless they are thinking OU turns down a bid? In any case I have OU ahead of us, making Indy bowl the ceiling if only one B12 team goes BCS.

    They must have OU beating OSU because OSU is not in the BCS.

    That's what I was thinking too, but maybe they know something that we don't know.

    That doesn't matter, bowl games don't have to pick the teams in order. We can get picked ahead of teams with 7 wins but not 8.

    yes, but we aren't going to be picked ahead of OU. So it is either an error or they think OU will decline a bid (not going to happen).

    Minnesota has the worst offense I've seen all year. DO WANT this matchup!
