Over the weekend, the Iowa State football team completed their regular season play.


The Cyclones are having a noteworthy season.


They secured the first place rank in the Big 12 conference’s regular season after winning five consecutive conference games and eight overall conference wins this season.


The good news doesn’t stop there for the Iowa State football program.


The Cyclones finished first place in league play for the first time since 1912 when they won the Missouri Valley Conference.


This has earned the Cyclones their well-deserved spot in the Big 12 title game on December 19.


The first ever Big 12 championship appearance in program history.


I want to applaud the Cyclones for their historic season.


So many fans, including me, will be rooting them on for the Big 12 championship game.
