Q-a-Day: Need Four Straight?

Iowa State shouldn't need to win its final four games to achieve bowl eligiblity

From now until Aug. 30, AllCyclones.com will answer one question per day regarding and the upcoming football season. Submit all questions via Twitter — just get at me (directions below).

Thanks for the question, Keith.

The way Iowa State's schedule plays out means Paul Rhoads and his staff will be challenged to keep their squad playing with conviction all the way through November, as it's possible the Cyclones begin the year 2-6, with losses to everyone but North Dakota State and Toledo, though those games are no gimmes.

Morale would be low at that point, but from Nov. 8 to Dec. 6 the Cyclones will have four very winnable games: at Kansas, home versus Texas Tech and West Virginia and at TCU.

However, I don't think ISU will be in a situation where it has to win those final four to be bowl eligible. The Cyclones have to beat NDSU and Toledo — and if they don't then they're really not worthy of a bowl game anyway — and then win one of the many early swing games: home vs. K-State, at Iowa, at Oklahoma State, at Texas (the Longhorns' outlook depends on the health of QB David Ash).

I expect Iowa State to get through that Nov. 1 game against Oklahoma with a 3-5 record, meaning it needs to just beat either one of Kansas and TCU on the road and then take care of business against the Red Raiders and West Virginia. TCU hasn't had a home-field advantage since it joined the Big 12 (1-7 against conference foes since 2012).

When we computed the degree of difficulty for each game back in June, the final four shakes out with scores of 3, 5, 3 and 4. The most difficult game, home versus Texas Tech, comes after a bye.

Q-A-Days

Who Will We Be Talking About?

Best Home Game?

Which is Greater?

@Trey_Scott3 will ISU have to win its final four games to be bowl eligible?
