AMES, Iowa -- The freezing weather isn't keeping Iowa State basketball fans from getting a front row seat to possible history.

They've been camping in the cold for more than a day now to see their Cyclones try to take down the No. 1 team in the nation Monday night, the Oklahoma Sooners. Iowa State will also be looking for revenge against Oklahoma as they lost to the Sooners, 87-83, on Jan. 2.

The Cyclones, who fell to No. 19 in the latest AP poll, haven't beaten a No. 1 ranked team since 1957 when they beat Wilt Chamberlain and the Kansas Jayhawks.

Despite that fact, the Cyclones are favored in this matchup, in part because of that famous, "Hilton Magic."
