The Big Game

We made our way to Ames this past Saturday to watch the Iowa State Cyclones game.  They played their instate rival - the Iowa Hawkeyes.  It was a beautiful day to be in Jack Trice Stadium to watch the game!  We made it to town a couple of hours before kickoff.  Just in time to stop by a couple of pregame tailgates.  We had bought tickets from some friends who had season tickets, and the seats were great!  We were on the south end of the stadium in the end zone.  JM was with us as well as the son of a friend.  Both were very excited for the game.

The teams came out on to the field shortly after 11:00 a.m., and the game began.  It was a very exciting game.  The two teams both played about equally throughout the game as the score showed.  And when the clock ran out............we were off to overtime.

Overtime was very exciting!  Both teams gave a very strong effort.  We had an excellent view of the plays since it was all taking place at our end of the stadium.  After three overtimes, the Cyclones came out on top.

We were naturally excited since we are Cyclone fans!  :)  Although both teams played their hearts out, and the game really could have gone either way.  Hats off to both the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones for an excellent game played.  You gave both sets of fans a great game to remember!
