The Iowa State football team will play under the lights once again this season, and this time they’ll do it in front of the biggest national audience they may have all season long.
ESPN will have their main Thursday night crew calling the game at Jack Trice Stadium, and fans are expected to be as rowdy as they were in the major upset win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys on a Friday night two years ago.
Yes, expect many mentions of that game during the broadcast.

Unfortunately, weather could be a major factor in this game with rain expected and a possibility of thunderstorms. Hopefully the most severe weather stays away or doesn’t take place until after the game, but fans all going to the game should be well prepared.
ESPN has set the kickoff at their normal 6:30 PM Central time. It will be available on WatchESPN to stream online, but your cable or satellite provider must participate in it. For the many that have DirecTV, this game will not be viewable online.
