Iowa State 2024 Football Schedule: Full List of Cyclones’ Opponents This Fall

    Find every opponent and location for the official Iowa State 2024 football schedule as the Cyclones look to compete for a Big 12 Conference crown.

    With the two teams that have largely dominated the conference in recent years departing, the Iowa State Cyclones should be considered one of the front runners in the Big 12 Conference this fall. Can Matt Campbell lead his team to a title this fall? The Iowa State 2024 football schedule will have a say in the answer to that question, and it appears to be favorable for the Cyclones.

    According to the CFN Strength of Schedule, the Iowa State 2024 football schedule is among the easiest in the Big 12. That is buoyed by an out-of-conference slate that features an FCS outfit (North Dakota Fighting Hawks) and a Group of Five program (the Arkansas State Red Wolves) sandwiching their El Assico rivalry with the Iowa Hawkeyes, which takes place in Iowa City this year.

    As a result, the Cyclones should take a winning record into their conference slate. The Big 12 operates a nine-game format featuring four or five road games in alternating seasons. The Iowa State 2024 football schedule includes four road games that help contribute to their strength of schedule.

    The first game in conference play is a road trip to the Houston Cougars, who welcome a new head coach but could struggle early on. The West Virginia Mountaineers should be a tough test (the Cyclones lost in Morgantown in 2021), as should the visits to the Kansas Jayhawks (lost in 2022 and 2023) and Utah Utes in November.

    However, their home slate on the Iowa State 2024 football schedule is much easier. They open against a Baylor Bears team they beat last fall and face the UCF Knights and Texas Tech Red Raiders in Ames either side of a bye. The Cincinnati Bearcats are another team defeated in 2023, while hosting the Kansas State Wildcats provides home field advantage for a tough matchup.
