    As I have mentioned before, I recently moved back to Iowa after living around the country for the last quarter century. I technically moved in 1995 after the UNLV game (Big game for Troy Davis!), but I just realized this will be my first full season of Cyclone Football since 1994. Yes, that dreadful 0-10-1 season! I went to every stinking home game too.

    So, I am looking forward to my first year back as a season ticket holder watching Iowa State play Big Xii Football instead of Big 8 Football. It will be fun seeing the Texas teams as conference opponents and seeing old Big 8 rivals too. I've been to a few games since I left town, but it has been sporadic at best.

    So, looking at this year's home schedule, here is the last time I have seen these 7 home opponents play in person:

    UNI: 1994 @ Iowa State. The Panthers sang their fight song in the end-zone after the game, AGAIN!

    Iowa: 2001 @ Iowa State. I was visiting my in-laws for Thanksgiving and was able to go to this 9/11 make-up game. Seneca being Seneca - along with a strong showing from the defense helped ISU to a hard fought 17-14 victory.

    UL-M: Will be a first for me! FYI: The WarHawks will be the 110th FBS team for me to see play in person.

    TCU: 2004 @ Cincinnati in the C-USA days!

    Oklahoma State: 1997 @ Iowa State. The Cowboys put a damper on Jack Trice Stadium Dedication night. Plus, that was the night Princess Diana died.

    Texas: 1995 Sugar Bowl vs. Virginia Tech! Got so drunk that night with a buddy of mine from California. We had a designated driver who laughed at us all night long. Had a blast though. lol. "Roll on you Hokies!"

    Kansas: 1994 @ Iowa State. Another miserable loss in a miserable season. Kansas must be destroyed!

    As for Iowa State, I last saw the boys in the Liberty Bowl win over Memphis.

    Looking forward to a great season of football watching some old foes I have not seen play in a while.

    Let's Go State!

    P.S. The UNI Game will be my first game in the stadium since the expansion. My last home game was in 2012 vs. West Virginia (another Thanksgiving Weekend game).

    LOL! ISU is actually *4-3* in games I have attended in Ames - since I moved away in 1995: Beat Mizzou in 1996, Lost to Okla. State in 1997, Beat Iowa in 1999, *Lost to Texas A&M in 2000*, Beat Iowa in 2001, Beat Mizzou in 2002 and lost to West Virginia in 2012. Not bad, actually!

    *Edited and Updated*, as I forgot about the 2000 loss to Texas A&M.

    That Iowa game in ‘01 is one of the more underrated games in ISU history. I was there and it was electric on a cold crappy day.
