Iowa State Up To 12th And Iowa 24th In AP Poll

Iowa State is up to 12th on the latest Associated Press college football poll.

The Cyclones clinched at least a share of the Big 12 regular season title with a 23-20 win at Texas. In his fifth year at the helm Matt Campbell has directed ISU to its first conference title since 1912.

It was a big step for a program with limited success in the past.

The Cyclones can clinch the outright title with a win at home against West Virginia.

Iowa debuts in the AP Poll at number 24. The Hawkeyes are 4-2 heading into a visit to Illinois. Iowa has won four straight but after three straight blowouts had to rally in the third quarter to beat Nebraska 26-20.

That’s Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz who remains confident in quarterback Spencer Petras. The sophomore has completed 56 percent of his passes and has five interceptions and just four touchdown passes.
