Bill Snyder engineered what is widely considered the greatest turnaround in college football history.

Iowa State’s young head coach, Matt Campbell, has complete respect for what Snyder built at Kansas State, and sees the K-State football culture as the benchmark for Iowa State.

The Wildcats have beaten the Cyclones nine straight times, but the games have been close.

Michael Admire reports from Ames.
