Legendary coach Johnny Orr will be in attendance. Orr is the winningest coach in school history at both Iowa State and Michigan.
An Iowa State win…
…would make Iowa State 3-0 for the third time in four years under Fred Hoiberg.
…would be the Cyclones’ highest over a ranked team since beating No. 5 Kansas on Jan. 28, 2012.
…would give Iowa State wins over ranked opponents at Hilton Coliseum in five of the last six meetings.
…would be Iowa State’s first over Michigan since 1990.
