Iowa State Upsets No. 22 Colorado, 30-16
Wow, my Cyclones did it again. We upset the North Division leaders, #22 Colorado, 30-16. It was our defense this week that was the difference. Steve Paris and Brent Curvey each made huge defensive plays to help Iowa State stay in the running for a share of the Big 12 North championship with a 30-16 victory over No. 22 Colorado on Saturday night.
Paris returned a fumble 66 yards for a touchdown after Dobbins knocked the ball loose and Curvey, a 305-pound defensive tackle, rumbled 66 yards for a TD with an interception to secure the Cyclones' fourth straight victory and prevent Colorado from clinching the division title.
Now we need to beat Kansas the last game of the season and Nebraska needs to knock off Colorado. If that happens we will have a share of the North Division Title for the second year in a row. I don’t know if this old Clone could handle that.
The great thing is that we are almost guaranteed a good bowl game this year. That alone is enough for me.
