Iowa State has been picked to finish second in the Big 12 preseason football poll. The Cyclones head into the most anticipated season in school history after falling to Oklahoma in the 2020 league championship game and beating Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. Cyclones Coach Matt Campbell says 19 starters return from that team.
“Preseason polls and stuff right now really don’t mean a whole lot. I think what we know what we have is, we have a veteran football team. There’s a lot of guys who have experience. And yet they have to earn the right to have confidence to be a good football team.”
Iowa State kicks off its 2021 football season Saturday, September 4 with a home game against Northern Iowa.
