  • Ames is expected to be a bit breezy for this afternoon's Iowa-Iowa State showdown (4 p.m. ET, FS1).
  • Below we detail how wind has affected college football games in the past, as well as how this line has moved -- perhaps as a result of the forecast.

When College Gameday makes its first-ever appearance at a given school, one of two things is probably true:

  1. A team is having an unexpectedly terrific season.
  2. The slate stinks.

This week, it’s definitely the latter. There are no matchups consisting of two Top 25 teams in Week 3, which brought the pregame show to Ames, Iowa for the first time.

Also making an appearance in Ames: wind … and a lot of it.
