    If you could pick one game to win

    who would it be?

    Think about it for a second.

    Obviously we would all like to beat Iowa in Iowa City, but what about the babies that are coming up from Lincoln for the last time? Not to mention, there is always Oklahoma whom we have only beat like ten times over some 70+ years. Taking out some revenge against Texas would be nice as well, especially since we have never beat them and are playing them in Austin this year (ouch, wouldn't that hurt the Longhorn fans). Of course we already know we are beating Colorado (I know that is a little cocky), it would be nice to rub it in the face of the Pac10 by beating both their new teams in the same year.

    So many mouth watering options. Personally I think beating Texas on the road would do the most for us, however beating Nebraska each of their last two years would be sweet. I'll take them all.

    Beating Texas @ Texas would be huge. I pick that one.

    Re: If you could pick one game to win

    Nebraska and it isn't close. Winning the final two games in the series would be something that none of the other games would give our fan base. We have been their whipping boy for a long time. We will have several chances to play the other teams. Texas would be a great win for the program and give us great exposure, but I live in Husker country so I love it when their fan base has to be pulled back from the ledge.

    As much as I want to beat Nebraska, beating Texas at Texas would be a much bigger win. I choose Texas.

    @ Oklahoma.

    I am a fan of Texas, so that rules out that game.

    Nebraska. It will be a LONG time before ISU gets a shot at Nebraska again, especially at home. I could care less about the pot smoking hippies of Colorado.

    I can't get by my hatred of all things Hawkeye. So an Iowa beat down it is.

    Re: If you could pick one game to win

    If the situation is we are only going to win 1 game, I would pick Iowa. Since the Big 12 wouldn't matter I'd at least like bragging rights in-state.

    If it is pick one automatic win, it would be Nebraska. It would be a nice little f-you as they walk out the door.

    Re: If you could pick one game to win

    I take it we're excluding the National Championship game?

    Winning at Texas would be the biggest possible victory.

    At home, possibly the last REGULAR SEASON game against them.
    Win the BIG 12 North, play TEXAS again in the big 12 Championship game.
    Beat TEXAS.
    Play Iowa in a bowl game , beat Iowa .
    Perfect year.
    We will keep the rivalry game with IOWA(I hope) and beat them on a regular basis form now on.
    As much as I hate the Hawks, I resent and hate what Nebraska and Colorado did to the Big 12.

    Love your picture.

    I want Iowa this season especially after Clayborne said that they are the only school in the state.

    This year, Nebraska. In future years Oklahoma, mainly because of the disparity in all-time record.

    Texas at Texas...soooo much good can come out of that.
    1. Recruiting-Beating a top ten team in the heart of a major recruiting ground would give us a huge boost in Texas recruiting as well as everywhere else
    2. Nationally televised game- The game most likely would be nationally televised and therefore would have more of an affect.
    3. Bigger win- Texas is by far a bigger win. We have shown we can beat Iowa and Nebraska but have we ever beaten Texas?
    I do like the point that it would be nice to send nebraska out with two consecutive losses but that still doesn't outweigh the benefits of beating Texas. Beating oklahoma would have similar effects but people would claim that Oklahoma is down because they were down last year. Plus we wouldn't get the bang for our buck in regards to Texas recruiting
