ESPN’s “College GameDay” was in Ames over the weekend for the Iowa-Iowa State “Cy-Hawk” showdown. Iowa State WAS ranked #9 going into the game and the Hawks WERE #10.

Iowa came out victorious for the sixth consecutive time against their interstate rivals, winning 27-17. The new AP Poll now has Iowa ranked #5 and the Cyclones dropped to #14. The Hawkeyes are also now the highest-ranked team in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes are also the only team in the nation to open up this season playing two ranked opponents.

The fans were ready-to-rock the crew during ESPN College GameDay, who were allowed to begin lining up at 3:30 on Saturday morning.

The hundreds of fans surrounding the GameDay stage had their signs ready for the camera — a tradition for the show.

A selection of some of the signs:

“Kirk Ferentz looks like a raisin.”

“Herkey: All feathers, no beak.”

“Yellow bird bad. Red bird good.”

“Spencer Petrash.”

“Cy skips leg day.”

“Iowa recruits from Bishop Sycamore.”

“I hope Ashton Kutcher doesn’t show up.”

“I’m ashamed to be in (L)Ames.”

“Iowa State: Roses are red, violets are blue, Nebraska sucks, Texas too.”

“Ashton Kutcher? I hardly know her?”

“Luka Garza is ugly.”

“Ashton Kutcher please take a shower.”

“Iowa is bad at football.”

“Iowa is as soft as a baby’s butt.”

“Ferentz puts ketchup on his steak.”

“Is this Heaven? No! But at least it’s not Nebraska.”

“Is this Hell? No, it’s Ames.”

“Matt Campbell social distances from the Cy-Hawk Trophy.”

“Can I get directions to the baseball stadium?”
