in the updated AP Poll. Seems like a harsh drop but I can’t really argue it when you get blown out at home to an unranked team. Iowa State is on the edge of going from potential Big 12 champion favorites to unranked in a span of 1 week. This is going to be a very crucial 2 weeks for Iowa State. Our next 3 games are against teams that we are 0-3 against with the 4th coming against a team that we also struggled with. @ KSU Baylor @ TCU @ Texas. Coming off a tough home loss, I’ll be pretty happy with 2-2 in the next 4. If we manage to only get 1 win, we’ll find ourselves in a situation where we’ve only 1 out of our last 5 games. We are way too talented to have a big losing streak so hopefully the guys bounce back quickly.
