The cooler weather came in just in time for the annual football clash between Iowa and Iowa State.
Whether they watched highlights on the giant video board or tailgated near the new Bergstrom practice facility, football fans in Ames saw the fruits of record fundraising at Iowa State.
Now fans are asking what is next for the stadium.
Everyone has a different idea on what should come next but Iowa State University has its own plan in mind.
University officials acknowledged that there is a rough plan for an improved South end zone in place but would not set a time for when fundraising for the project might begin.
