After going to three bowl games between 2009 and 2012, the Iowa State Cyclones have won just 11 games in the past four seasons combined. The school has never finished a season in double digit wins but did tally 9 in 2000 on its way to a final #25 AP ranking.
Second-year coach Matt Campbell looks to build on the momentum of winning two of the last three games in 2016, including a 66-10 thumping of Texas Tech. Returning quarterback Jacob Park threw for 1,791 yards and 12 TDs last year despite only starting the season's final five contests.
With much to be excited about in 2017, including revenge games against Northern Iowa and Iowa (both at home), the Cyclones released this beautifully crafted video called "Our Story" that showcases the team's history chock-full of upsets and future NFL studs.
