Poo, Iowa State let one just slip by, now this one was a tough loss. Now if I was the Cyclones, I wouldn’t really change anything because they payed their hearts out in this one, the only thing that really should be different is the outcome. Iowa State did jump out to an early lead, leading 10-7 at half time. But the Second half was a full out back and forth battle. Nebraska came out of the gate first scoring 17 points in the third quarter to get ahead. Then in the forth quarter the Cyclones came back scoring 14 [points to make the game out into overtime, with both teams at 24 a piece.The ISU offence under Austen Arnaud, overall had a pretty good game. Arnaud threw for 203 yards and three TDs but, he also had two costly picks for Iowa State, which lost for the 29th time in its last 33 games against the Cornhuskers. The defense did a good job forcing a couple turnovers, but this game I guess wasn’t the won to win for the Cyclones.
I mean this by far was the Cyclones best game, I mean they showed they can really hang tough with the big guys. Losing in overtime, I mean come on, if they don’t get to be bowl eligible I will be shocked. I guess Iowa State will have to win either next week against Colorado next week or the following week against Missouri to become bowl eligible. Colorado, might be the opponent for Iowa State to defeated to be bowl eligible, because Buffaloes haven’t won a game since they played Georgia over a month ago winning that game 29-27.
