This Aggies Wildcats contest falls on Saturday of week 11. IT WOULD BE NICE IF TEXAS COULD: Not only beat Colorado, but beat Kansas State and Kansas as well. Amy Letourneau recorded the win, throwing five innings.
There is a buzz in Cyclone land as CoachGreg McDermott heads into his fourth season. McDermott has a reputation for rebuilding programs as is shown by his tremendous work at Northern Iowa. He made them a Missouri Valley powerhouse with multiple NCAA appearances.
IT WOULD BE NICE IF OKLAHOMA STATE COULD: Beat Oklahoma in the quarterfinals. OU has beaten Oklahoma State five times in a row, and seven of the last eight times the teams have played. It should be a loud, boisterous atmosphere in Ford Center Thursday, with both schools well represented in the stands. There wouldn’t be a better time for OSU to reclaim Bedlam bragging rights.
This time, our series takes us to Ames, Iowa, home of the Cyclones. It may not sound like much, but Ames has plenty to offer the football fans of America.
Jack Trice was born in 1902 in the town of Hiram, Ohio. He was the son of Green and Anna Trice. Jack’s father was a Buffalo soldier, as well as a former slave.

There’s still a whole lot of talent in the Cyclone backcourt. Scott Christopherson is a quite talented shooter who has drained 131 career three-pointers already. He drained 86 last season, ending up 2nd from the conference and 33rd in the nation at 2.8 every game. His 44.1 3-point percentage was good for 11th in the country and he’s buried a 3-pointer in 34 consecutive contests. Christopherson doesn’t turn the ball over, works hard, and should not need to log so many minutes this season thanks to the Cyclones’s bench.
After knocking off Texas in their last game, Oklahoma scored their first shutout of the season over the hapless Iowa State basketball. Oklahoma was also helped by a Texas victory on Saturday over undefeated Nebraska. Oklahoma does not play Nebraska in the regular season and the Texas win only helps OU’s strength of schedule.
