Iowa State Cyclones Wall Stickers
Hailing from Iowa State University, the Cyclones have a long history as noteworthy college football competitors.

Today, they compete in the the Big 12 conference.

Below, we’ll provide a brief history of the Cyclones, including their rise to the top and their appearances at several Bowl games.

Uniforms And Gear Of The Cyclones
The Cyclones got their name during the last few years of the 1800s. After routing Northwestern, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune wrote that the losing team may as well have have been playing with an Iowa cyclone. The name stuck and Iowa State’s college football team has had it ever since. Their helmets are a bright red with a distinct “I” on the side. Their jerseys, a standard white with a gold stripe emblazoned down the sides of their lower uniform.

Measured Success Through The Years
Over their long history, the Iowa State Cyclones have enjoyed the guidance of strong coaches. Johnny Majors led them to the 1971 Sun Bowl, though they suffered a 15-33 loss to LSU. The following year, they climbed into the Liberty Bowl only to be barely beaten back from victory (30-31) by Georgia Tech. It was another 5 years before the Cyclones would earn their next Bowl bid. The 1977 Peach Bowl pitted them against North Carolina State and resulted in a 14-24 loss. In 1978, they fought their way to the Hall of Fame Bowl. Unfortunately, Texas A&M trounced them 12-28.
Dan McCarney was brought aboard as head coach in 1995, sparking the team’s inspiration. His leadership emboldened the Cyclones and though it took 5 years to return to the Bowl, it was a defining moment for them. The 2000 Insight.com Bowl matched them against notable contender Pittsburgh. The Cyclones triumphed, winning their first Bowl game 37-29.
The following 5 years witnessed Iowa State returning to the Bowl 4 times. In 2001, they lost 13-14 to Alabama in the Independence Bowl. In 2002, the team lost the Humanitarian Bowl 16-34 to Boise State. They returned in 2004 to battle Miami, Ohio in the Independence Bowl, which they won by a slim margin (17-13). The Cyclones’ last Bowl bid was the 2005 Houston Bowl, during which they were narrowly defeated 24-27 by Texas Christian University.
Paul Rhoads was announced as the 31st head coach in December 2008. Rhoads had previously spent time at Iowa State as an assistant coach in the late nineties and was raised only 20 miles from the school’s football facilities. In October 2009 the Cyclones defeated Baylor to end an 11 game losing stretch against conference opponents, and then went on to defeat Nebraska in Lincoln for the first time since 1977. On December 31, 2009 the Cyclones capped off their season with an Insight.com Bowlvictory over Minnesota. In 2010 the Cyclones captured a milestone win over the #22 Texas Longhorns by a 28–21 margin. On November 18, Iowa State faced off against undefeated No. 2 Oklahoma State in Ames. Down 24-7 early in the second half, Iowa State came back with 17 unanswered points to force overtime. In the second overtime, Iowa State forced an interception and three Jeff Woody runs ended with a touchdown to beat Oklahoma State 37-31, smashing Oklahoma State’s chances of playing for a national championship. Iowa State fell to Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl to end the season at 6-7.
