UNRANKED IOWA STATE. Preseason polls may be how the 3rd longest streak in the country comes to an end.

TOP RANKED IOWA STATE. As of right now, Iowa State has the top recruiting class in the conference for 2017 and it should only get better if Prohm can snag either Wigginton or Stokes, who visit this weekend.

Around the Country

VIKINGS NEWS. Sounds awful and may mean the last snap in a Vikings uniform for Adrian Peterson. Who knows though, placing Matt Kalil on IR and signing Ronnie Hillman may solve the Vikings running game. Either way, people still see reason for hope in the Twin Cities.
