Iowa State to face Washington State in Alamo Bowl

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

AMES, Iowa (KTIV) — The bowl wait is over for Iowa State. The Cyclones finished with an 8-4 record.

And while ISU fell short of the Big 12 championship, the team will still have a chance to finish the season with a win.

The destination is San Antonio, and the Alamo Bowl, where they will face No. 13 Washington State on December 28th.

This bowl announcement, coming 24 hours after ISU barely got past FCS program Drake, 27-24.

But the body of work – a third place Big 12 finish, and two wins over ranked teams – speaks for itself.

The Cyclones will look for its first 9 win season since 2000.

“Last year, it was great to have some success, but you almost felt like everybody thought it was a fluke,” said head coach Matt Campbell. “To be able to showcase that that wasn’t the situation, and now, to only continue to push the envelope in a positive direction, I think it says a lot about the character of the young men in our program. Just really proud of our kids, but I do think it’s a big step forward.”

“Every game was very sweet to me, win or lose,” said junior wide receiver Hakeem Butler. “You never know when your last day’s going to be, so I’m incredibly excited and happy that we got this bowl. It didn’t matter where we’re going, I would have been happy.”

Iowa State and Washington State will meet at 8:00 p.m. on December 28th.
