AMES, IA--Well, I made the hard drive on I-80 then to I-35 to get to Ames. This is a matchup between the Panthers and Cyclones that could be an upset in my opinion.
Temperatures are at 71 degress but with 94% humidity so this non-climate controlled press box is a bit steamy.
This is the 27th time that these two schools have played with UNI winning just once, in 2007. ISU won 27-0 last year.
UNI brings a wealth of experience back with 10 of its top 11 tacklers from a year ago.
The Panthers also bring back quarterback Tirrell Rennie and running back Carlos Anderson to provide a spark on the offense.
I think this will be a very close game and much closer than last year's contest. I like the Panthers to win it with a late score.
We shall see.
