Iowa State’s regular season finale road trip to Kansas State has been set for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff on ESPN2. The Cyclones will travel to Manhattan on Saturday in search of their eighth win of the season.

The Wildcats became bowl eligible with their 45-40 win over Oklahoma State. Kansas State has won nine straight games against the Cyclones, including last year’s 31-26 win in Ames.

The longest winning streak in the series is Kansas State’s 10 consecutive wins from 1994 to 2003.

Iowa State picked up its seventh win overall and fifth Big 12 win, tying the school-record, with a 23-13 victory over Baylor on Saturday. A win next weekend in Manhattan will give Iowa State six conference wins for the first time in school history.
