Our Cyclones are coming off of a slightly unexpected home win against the Longhorns. while the Aggies are coming off of a loss to Baylor. The Aggies lost to the Rice Owls at home earlier this year, a team that Iowa State destroyed in South Padre.
This is the last trip for the Cyclones to College Station in the foreseeable future, what with the Ags taking their oversized state of Texas on the floor and heading off to the SEC. They think they are Texas' school, and who are we to tell them any different? I don't see any tears being shed from either side of the epic Cyclone-Aggie rivalry.
Anywho, Iowa State could pick up a quality road victory here. If we think the NCAA is still within reach (and it's too early for it to be out of reach) these are the kind of games we need to do well in.
