History

Football first made its way onto the Iowa State campus in 1878 as a recreational sport, but it wasn't until 1892 that an organized group of athletes first represented Iowa State in football. In 1894, college president William M. Beardshear spearheaded the foundation of an athletic association to officially sanction Iowa State football teams. The 1894 team finished with a 6–1 mark, including a 16–8 victory over what is now the University of Iowa.[3]

Team name

Originally, the Iowa Agricultural College (Iowa State University) teams were known as the "Cardinals".[4] The name was changed after Sept. 29, 1895, when under legendary coach Glenn "Pop" Warner[5] the Cardinals routed the Northwestern Wildcats, 36-0. Inspired by an extremely active tornado (then called "cyclone") season, the next day, the Chicago Tribune headline read: "Struck by a Cyclone." The article went on to say, "Northwestern might as well have tried to play football with an Iowa cyclone as with the team it met yesterday." Since then the Iowa State teams have been known as the "Cyclones"[6].

Jack Trice

Jack Trice was Iowa State's first African-American athlete; he was also the first and only Iowa State athlete to die from injuries sustained during athletic competition. He died three days after his first game playing for Iowa State against the University of Minnesota on October 6, 1923. He suffered a broken collarbone early on, but continued to play until he was trampled by a group of Minnesota players. It is disputed whether he was trampled on purpose or if it was an accident. A statue commemorates him outside of the stadium that is named for him, Jack Trice Stadium. His legacy was forgotten until the 70's when students discovered a plaque commemorating him in State Gym. They decided to put up a petition to name the stadium, at the time known as Cyclones Stadium, after him. Originally they got the field named after him in 1984. The stadium was named Jack Trice Stadium in 1997. It is the only NCAA Division I stadium named after an African-American.[7]

Johnny Majors era

Iowa State finished the season 8–4. The 1971 teams was picked to finish last in the Big Eight, but overcame odds to get a Sun Bowl bid to give the Cyclones their first bowl bid ever in Major's fourth season at Iowa State. The team was led by George Amundson who Majors called, “the finest athlete I have coached in any job I have had.” Iowa State had one all-conference pick, LB Keith Schroeder. Offensively they were led by Amundson who rushed for 1,260 yards as a running back, including a school record of 15 touchdowns. End Keith Krepfle had 40 receptions for 570 yards and 12 touchdowns. Quarterback Dean Carlson threw for a school record of 1,867 yards.

  • LSU 33
  • Iowa State 15

Iowa State's defense played well, but was unable to control QB Bert Jones who was 12–18–227 with three touchdowns. Iowa State got to within four points in the fourth quarter, but Bert Jones drove LSU down the field for yet another score.

1972 saw the loss of five starters and the move of George Amundson from running back to quarterback to replace Dean Carlson. The Clones lost LB Matt Blair to a pre season injury which forced him into a medical redshirt. The Cyclones fought Nebraska to a 23–23 tie during the '72 season which would have been won on a made extra point by Tom Goedjen, who missed the extra point, but wouldn't miss another extra point as a Cyclone. Three players went on to be named to the All-Big Eight team, OL Geary Murdoch, DE Merv Krakau and QB George Amundson. George Amundson was named Big Eight player of the year over Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Rodgers.

Iowa State led 14–3 after the first quarter and a Willie Jones Liberty Bowl record, 93-yard kickoff return gave the Cyclones a 21–17 halftime edge. Georgia Tech regained the lead, but the Cyclones took advantage of a Tech turnover late in the game. Amundson hit Ike Harris on a 5-yard TD pass with 1:36 left to cut the Tech lead to 31-30, but Amundson’s two-point conversion pass fell incomplete to end the Cyclones’ chances for victory before 50,021 emotionally spent fans, as well as an ABC-TV prime-time national audience.

Earle Bruce era

  • 1976 Cyclones

The team finished the season with an 8–3 record and a No. 18 ranking, but was snubbed by the bowls even though their losses were to the #1, #2 and #3 teams in the country. Bruce was selected as the Big Eight Coach of the year and had four players garner all conference honors, including Luther Blue, a Split End, who was an All-American. Iowa State would have tied for a share of the Big Eight title with a win over Oklahoma State in the season finale, but they lost. They upset power house Nebraska 37–28, their first win over Nebraska since 1960, but was unable to beat bowl-bound teams Oklahoma State and Colorado.

Following another good season, where the Cyclones again beat Nebraska, Iowa State earned a berth in the Peach Bowl. They also tied for second in the conference. The Peach Bowl saw the matchup of two stellar running backs, NC State's Ted Brown and Iowa State's Dexter Green. The game however was dominated by QB Johnny Evans who put up 264 yards of total offense.

The Cyclones returned 14 starters from the 1977 peach bowl team including Heisman Trophy candidate, Dexter Green and Outland Trophy hopeful, Mike Stensrud. Iowa State's post season hopes came down to their last game against Colorado which was nationally televised. The game was close throughout, with ISU clinging to a 17–10 halftime lead. A 27-yard first-half TD pass from Grant to Hardee and a 24-yard field goal from Steve Johnson gave ISU a 10–0 lead. After a CU touchdown closed the gap, Grant rumbled into the end zone from five yards out before the Buffs closed the half with a field goal. The second half was a defensive battle, but the ISU defense came up with big plays down the stretch. Mike Stensrud had 16 stops and caused a fumble to help ISU preserve a 20–16 win over the Buffs. The win earned ISU a Hall of Fame Bowl bid. Cyclones that made the Big Eight first team were Dexter Green, Mike Stensrud, Tom Boskey and Dick Cuvelier. Chris Boskey was named Big Eight Newcomer of the Year.

Iowa State was favored in the Hall of Fame Bowl, but Texas A&M RB Curtis Dickey ran for a Hall of Fame Bowl record of 276 yards. Dickey had 184 yards in the first half, including runs of 54, 25, 35, and 21 yards.

Dan McCarney era

1990's Dan McCarney was hired following the 1994 season to replace Jim Walden. McCarney coached RB Troy Davis to a second-place finish in the Heisman Trophy race in 1996. Florida QB Danny Wuerffel won the award. In 1998, McCarney's Cyclones defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes, snapping a 15 game losing streak against Iowa. McCarney's Cyclones would win five straight games against Iowa following the 1998 game.

2000 season In 2000, McCarney took the Cyclones to their first bowl game since 1978 and their first ever bowl victory. Led by senior QB Sage Rosenfels, the Cyclones won against the University of Pittsburgh Panthers in the 2000 Insight.com Bowl at Bank One Ballpark in Phoenix, Arizona.

2001 season Propelled by newcomer Seneca Wallace, the Cyclones went to a second bowl game in 2001 against the Alabama in the 2001 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana. They lost the game on a disputed missed field goal by Cyclonce kicker Tony Yelk, which some people thought had sailed directly over the right goal post.

2002 season

Seneca Wallace would lead the Cyclones to a 6–1 start in 2002, including a near-win against the Florida State in the Eddie Robinson Classic in Kansas City, Missouri. Wallace dove towards the goal line at the last second but was ruled out shy of the end zone. At one point the Cyclones were ranked #9 in the country. They wouldn't finish the season as well as they began it. They finished the season 7-7 following a loss to Boise State in the Humanitarian Bowl. The following season wasn't as successful. The Cyclones finished 2003 with a 2–10 record. They were quarterbacked by redshirt freshman Austin Flynn, who went on to switch the wide receiver position in later seasons.

During a 2002 home game versus Texas Tech, ISU quarterback Seneca Wallace scored on a 12-yard touchdown by running an estimated 120 yards backwards, forwards, and sideways on the field. Wallace dodged tackles and received numerous blocks from his offense, including one devastating block made by running back Michael Wagner. The play briefly catapulted Wallace into Heisman Trophy contention and was recognized by ESPN as the "Play of the Week." It has since been recognized as one of the great plays in college football history. The play is known among Iowa State fans simply as "The Run." Just as memorable to fans was the play-by-play given by Cyclone Radio broadcaster Pete Taylor.

2004 season The 2004 season would be much more successful for the Cyclones. Redshirt freshman Bret Meyer took over the quarterback spot and paired up with fellow redshirt freshman receiver Todd Blythe to make a lethal combination. The Cyclones had a chance to win the Big 12 North Title but fell short after a Missouri defender intercepted a pass intended for Jon Davis in the end zone. The Cyclones would go on to play the Miami RedHawks in the 2004 Independence Bowl. They won the game 17–13. The Cyclones finished the season 7–5.

2005 season The Cyclones continued their success under McCarney in the 2005 season with a 7–5 record. They missed out yet again on the Big 12 title when they lost in overtime to the Kansas Jayhawks after a missed field goal by Bret Culbertson. They led the game in the 4th quarter but allowed Kansas to come back. They got a berth in the 2005 Houston Bowl, but lost 24–27 to the TCU Horned Frogs.

McCarney stepped down as head coach after a 4–8 season in 2006. McCarney finished with a 56–85 all time record.

Gene Chizik era

The redesigned uniform combos introduced during Chizik's tenure.

Gene Chizik signed as new head football coach, replacing Dan McCarney. Iowa State wore 1977 throwback jerseys for the 2007 game against Iowa and re-introduced gold pants as a standard part of their uniform. It marked the 30th anniversary since the restart of the rivalry as well as the 30th anniversary of the 1977 Iowa State Peach Bowl team. They finished the season 3-9, including a 1-100 lose over Iowa, and back-to-back wins against Kansas State and Colorado. All three wins were upsets. In 2008, Iowa State opened with two wins against weaker nonconference foes, before losing their next 10 games to finish the season 2-10. Chizik left the Cyclones after the season to become the head football coach of Auburn.[8]

Traditions

Cannon

The members of the Iowa State Chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi man and maintain a cannon that is discharged at home football games when the Iowa State team takes the field, following the first kickoff, the kickoff following half-time, all Iowa State kickoffs, and immediately following an Iowa State touchdown.[10]

Mascot

Cy the Mascot

Iowa State uses a cardinal, Cy, as its mascot instead of an actual tornado or Cyclone. Prior to the football matchup against the University of Colorado on November 12, 2005 a tornado touched down in Ames, Iowa and forced fans to either stand out in the parking lot and watch the storm or flee to shelter in Hilton Coliseum. It created such an atmosphere that Iowa State was able to win over the favored Buffaloes 30–16. When asked about the event, Colorado coach Gary Barnett said, "I thought we had a pretty good mascot. But when we showed up at Iowa State and they had a real tornado, that's the real deal."[10]

Tailgating

Iowa State is well regarded for a uniquely American phenomena known as Tailgating. The layout of Jack Trice Stadium on a flood-plain accommodates ample parking space immediately surrounding the stadium. Cyclone fans typically arrive hours before kick-off in large SUVs and Recreational Vehicles to grill popular Midwestern foods such as pork loin, bratwurst, hamburgers and hot dogs and enjoy beer.

Trophy games

Iowa State's Victory Bell

Victory bell

Located immediately outside and north of Jack Trice Stadium, the victory bell is rung following a Cyclone victory. Forged in 1890 the victory bell served on campus to signal dismissal from classes before being moved to Clyde Williams Field and Jack Trice Stadium.[10]

Facilities

Jack Trice Stadium

Jack Trice Stadium (formerly Cyclone Stadium) is a stadium in Ames, Iowa. It is primarily used for college football, and is the home field of the Iowa State University Cyclones. It opened on September 20, 1975 (with a win against Air Force), and with hillside tickets it officially has 55,000 seats. The current record for single-game attendance, 56,795, was set on September 8, 2007 when the Cyclones played Northern Iowa. In 1997, the stadium was named in honor of Jack Trice, ISU's first African American athlete and the school's first athletics-related fatality. The stadium is the only stadium in Division I-A named for an African American individual.[11]

Other facilities

Former Stadiums

  • State Field (1892–1913)
  • Clyde Williams Field (1914–1974) Martin and Eaton Residence Halls now stand on the ground formerly occupied by Clyde Williams Field, northwest of Friley Hall and south of State Gym.

Bergstrom Indoor Facility

Bergstrom Indoor Practice Facility

The Steve and Debbie Bergstrom Indoor Training Facility opened in March 2004. It is a 92,000 square-foot multi-purpose, indoor practice facility. Inside the facility is a full sized astroturf football field. Though typically associated with football, it is also used for practice by the softball and soccer teams, as well as community events. The building sits just northwest of Jack Trice Stadium and is part of the Johnny Majors Practice Complex. The facility cost $9.6 million to build and was funded by private gifts to the athletic department and ISU Foundation.[12]

Jacobson Athletic Building Located off the north end zone of Jack Trice Stadium, The Jacobson Athletic Building houses all football offices, locker rooms, meeting rooms, strength and conditioning room, and sports medicine room. In addition to football, it also houses administrative and coaches offices (except men's and women's basketball). The administrative and football offices were renovated in 2008 with the renovation to the Jack Trice Stadium.[13]
