The Mid-Morning Dump - 10/9/12: Iowa State Adopts Farmageddon

A daily collection of links about the Cyclones and sports in general.

OFFICIALLY FARMAGEDDON! Iowa State Athletics has acknowledged the greatest manufactured rivalry name in college football.

NEW DE COMMIT. The 19th member of the 2013 class is Ernest Suttles, a 6 foot 5 DE from Tampa, Florida.

PURPLE EFFICIENCY. Kansas State is currently #1 in the UPS Team Performance Index for efficiency. The Cyclones check in at #35.

ARE THE SOONERS BACK? Jason Kersey looks at if Oklahoma is back in the national title hunt after an impressive display
