Expectations are high for the Iowa State Cyclones heading into the 2021 college football season, and as expected, Cyclone Nation is all in.
Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard announced on Twitter on Friday morning that the Cyclones are on pace for a record-setting year for football season tickets, with over 47,000. That would break the prior record set in 2019 of 46,190.
We are on pace to sell over 47K fb season tix which would break our prior record of 46,190 set in 2019. The Jack will definitely be packed this fall!

For anyone paying attention, this should not be a surprise. Cyclones fans are some of the most passionate fans, not just in the Big 12, but in the country. And now they’ve got a team coming off a trip to the Big 12 Championship Game, with a ton of returning starters, and that is expected to be ranked in the Top 10 when the season kicks off.
These are uncharted waters for the Iowa State Cyclones and their fan base and they’re, understandably, hoping that the 2021 season will live up to the expectations that have been set. If they do, then this fall at Jack Trice will end up being one of the best scenes in the entire sport this fall.
