As teams across the Big 12 Conference continue to roll out their plans for the 2021 college football season, the Iowa State Cyclones are the latest to announce plans for a full capacity Jack Trice Stadium this fall.
The Cyclones made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
WE’RE BACK! Full capacity coming to Jack Trice on September 4. 🚨🌪

TCU was the latest Big 12 program to announce it was moving to full capacity for outdoor sporting events.
This is no surprise, but it’s still a sigh of relief for Iowa State fans, who had to watch the historic 2020 Cyclones football season mostly from the couch, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Iowa State made a run to the Big 12 Championship, however the stadium, like most, had a very limited capacity.
Heading into the 2021 college football season, the Cyclones will likely be a preseason Top 10 team with likely the loftiest expectations in program history. Iowa State has been given Top 5 odds by some bookmakers to win the 2021 National Championship and they rank in the Top 10 of ESPN’s SP+ projections for the upcoming season as well.
And now, with a packed Jack Trice Stadium for the 2021 football season, the Cyclones are going to have one of the best home field advantages in not just the Big 12 but the entire sport.
