Iowa State’s preseason hype has officially made it to the national stage.
Bill Fennelly and the Iowa State Cyclones will start the season ranked 8th in the country, the second-highest preseason ranking in school history. Heading into the 1999-2000 season, Iowa State was ranked 7th. That team finished 27-6, Big 12 champions, and saw a Sweet Sixteen appearance.
Here’s how the rest of the top 10 shook out.
