    He doesn’t get a vote, but the Camping World CEO wants the Cyclones vs Notre Dame.

    FWIW, the only person worth any grain of salt is Brett McMurphy who has contact with numerous bowl reps. The rest are no different than everyone on this site.

    Even with the contacts, it’s hard to get things 100% right because a CFP/NY6 or other surprise will send ripples throughout the whole selection.

    Plus when it gets down to the mid-level or lower-level bowls, I think most of the predictions are based purely on conference standings.

    I'd have to go back, but I'm guessing that very few had us predicted to Alamo last year. (I KNOW very few of CF posters had us to Alamo after the Drake game.)

    Hopefully Alamo takes Texas and then we might have a decent shot at Orlando. I have faith that Jamie has been "working" the Orlando Bowl people this season better than KSU or Ok State has. If Texas gets down to Orlando to pick just think them vs ND is too big of a "name game" for them to pass up.​

    And Elon Musk wanted to build a truck. Sometimes it doesn’t work out as planned.

    My final prediction:

    If the Alamo Bowl takes Texas, we're going to the Camping World Bowl. If they don't take Texas, we're going to the Texas Bowl. We will not be available for the Liberty Bowl.

    This is a big thing that people are not factoring in. Pollard knows what he is doing. The last two years he has positioned Iowa State to be chosen for a bowl game over other schools with promises that our fan base would respond. Thankfully, our fan base has backed up those promises. I trust that JP has spent all weekend politicking, and it will pay off today.

    Outside of it being a repeatish type of thing I don't know why anyone would be surprised at this placement.

    They'll probably start rolling out around 1 or 2.

    As much as I’d like to buy in that we have a shot at Camping World, Ch13 sports last night showed only 2 updated bowl destination possibilities for us- Texas Bowl or Liberty. Would they even put that out there unless they had inside info from ISU??

    Yep hearing Liberty Bowl vs. UCF. Not crazy pumped about it, but as far as group of five schools go it could certainly be worse.

    Here is what SP+ (Bill Connolly's metric) would predict for lines in ISU games against opponents that are being floated. - means ISU is favored by the amount, + means ISU is the underdog.

    +4 vs. Notre Dame (Camping World)

    -8.5 vs. Mississippi State (Texas)
    -4 vs. Tennessee (Texas)
    +1.5 vs. Texas A&M (Texas)

    -7.5 vs. SMU (Liberty)
    -5 vs. Navy (Liberty)
    +5 vs. UCF (Liberty)

    UCF in the Liberty Bowl is a worst case scenario in my opinion.

    As much as I want ND, just winning a freaking game to end the year is pretty important.
