Both Iowa State and Texas A&M; are longshots — at best — to make a run at a bowl bid, but there’s still a lot to play for. Iowa State closes its season with three of four on the road, where they haven’t won since 2005, and they play No. 16 Missouri in the home finale, leaving 2-10 as a real possibility if they can’t beat the Aggies.
Texas A&M; is building for the future as well, and defensive back Trent Hunter said that last week’s strong performance against the Red Raiders was the direct result of a great week of practice.
“Even though we’re not right yet in the eyes of the public, we need to prepare like we are,” Sherman said.
