A 23-13 win over Baylor last week assured Iowa State (7-4, 5-3) its first winning season since going 7-6 in 2009. A win in Saturday’s regular-season finale at Kansas State and the Cyclones would reach the eight-win plateau for the first time since a 9-3 season in 2000.

The Texas and Liberty bowls are the most-popular choices for ISU’s December destination this week among select forecasters.
