POLL: Are you confident?

Being that Cy-Hawk week is officially upon us, we’re wanting to take the temperature of the Cyclone Nation

Iowa State is 0-1 with a loss to UNI. 

The Hawkeyes are 1-1, with a loss to NIU and a less than impressive win over lowly Missouri State. 

Frankly, it doesn’t seem like either side has any confidence at all heading into next Saturday’s 5 p.m. kick. Iowa is a three-point favorite.

It’s early in the week but we want to know how you feel about 2013’s battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy.
