Iowa State Cyclones – NCAAF History
The Iowa State Cyclones are a Division I FBS Football team based in Ames, Iowa. Initially founded as a club team in 1878, then made official in 1892, Iowa State has an overall record of 553–661–46. The Iowa State program was strong in its early stages, with legendary pioneer Pop Warner as one of the first coaches in program history. After a 36-0 upset blowout of Northwestern, sportswriters from the Chicago Tribune, said the Evanston, Illinois school was “struck by a cyclone”, which became the inspiration for the school’s nickname.
Under Clyde Williams, Iowa State was solid between 1907 and 1912, with the program’s only two conference championships coming along in that span, winning the Missouri Valley Conference crown in back-to-back years of 1911 and 1912.
In 1923, tackle Jack Trice, who was one of the first African-American players for any program located in the midwest, was seriously injured and trampled during a play against the University of Minnesota. He was sent home with his teammates despite being unable to leave the field on his power and later died from hemorrhaged lungs and internal bleeding. In 1974, the Iowa State student body voted to rename Cyclone Stadium in his honor, but the change wasn’t officially made until 1997. Jack Trice Stadium remains the only Division I stadium or arena to be named after an African American.
After a few mediocre decades, Iowa State found some success in the mid-1970s under head coach Earle Bruce. In 1976, the Cyclones went 8-3, picking up a pair of wins over top-10 ranked teams, but failed to reach a bowl game. The next season, Iowa State went 8-4 and played North Carolina State in the 1977 Peach Bowl, losing the contest by 24-14. Iowa State has made 18 bowl appearances in program history, with an overall record of 5-13. Their current stretch of five consecutive seasons with a bowl berth is the longest run in program history.
