    Early Odds

    Cyclones are a 2 1/2-point underdog to Minnesota. How's that possible?


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    Re: Early Odds

    Good question, but I would imagine that some are looking at the head to heads versus Iowa, and see that we were 3-35, and they were 0-12?

    Re: Early Odds

    This game is very evenly matched IMO. Should be a good game.

    It's a winnable game, but I believe they are rightly favored.

    Re: Early Odds

    Will we have everyone back besides Parker? Or am I missing somebody? It's been a long time-- actually the Kent State game since we were healthy.

    Re: Early Odds

    Does anyone know if Minn. stud reciever (Decker I think his name is?) will be back? I know he got hurt a month or so ago, can't remember what type of injury though.

    How does that make a difference? Do we have a competitive advantage since we have darker colored jerseys on and they have on white?
