    They’d have ranked whatever game we were in #2.

    The match up is definitely exciting. If we were playing Memphis anywhere other than Memphis, ISU fans on here would be a lot more excited. At least that didn't discourage all of our fan base because we are expected to bring more fans this year than 2012.

    It should be a fun game. Regarding the disappointment ... it was not for most of us directed at drawing the tigers ... it was playing a team on their home field and the fact that it is not a warm sunny location. Also ... it was the last bowl game we went to and played poorly. Most of us are pumped at the matchup.

    On paper it is one of the more interesting games. Contrasting styles; will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    I actually remember when you guys were here last. Not because I went to the game, but my husband DJed the New Years for your band and cheerleaders. He said y'all were a fun crowd. I look forward to meeting y'all and having a good time.

    And, I agree about the warm and sunny, but if it makes you feel better, last year in Memphis, Dec 30 was mostly sunny and in the 50's. :)

    It could be worse. Akron is playing Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton!

    At least we didn’t play Memphis earlier in the year.

    Going into the year this would be a pleasant outcome. But we we’re robbed of a better bowl. Kansas ******* State, which is basically UNI, gets UCLA.

    I think this game could get some good media attention. It has lots of interesting angles. Not the least of which is our QB from last year who led the team in tackles this year.

    I think our defense will do okay (not shut down) your offense. And I think our defense will be in gear and probably score more than we have lately.

    Predicting Iowa State 44, Memphis 24.

    I was going to like this, then I saw the last line. I am not predicting a winner, but I think the game will be much closer than that.

    Yeah, I have a hard time seeing this game as a blowout either way.

    Memphis has blown some teams out and likes to play fast, while ISU hasn't blown many teams out, they've also been in every game (even the losses) and likes to control tempo.

    If you really wanted to make friends here, you would have pointed out that the Pinstripe bowl is the 35th most interesting bowl to watch.
