    [​IMG]Iowa State turned heads with a pair of wins over then-No.19 Texas and Texas Tech that had the Cyclones in bowl contention.

    Now, they may turn heads with a loss that knocks them out of it.

    The 5-5 Cyclones trail Colorado 20-7 midway through the third quarter, and with No. 17 Missouri on its way to Ames next week, Iowa State would need to pull a third shocker to qualify for a bowl for the second straight season.

    Both of the Cyclones' second-half drives have been three-and-outs and Josh Lenz fumbled a punt to set up a Colorado field goal.

    Paul Rhoads' teams seem to be at their best when no one expects much out of them, but all five of the Cyclones losses have come to teams currently ranked in the Top 25.

    It seems like his team is falling flat in the one game most expected them to win, against a Colorado team playing its first game since* Dan Hawkins was fired.
