These throwback uniforms were worn to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Iowa State’s 1977 Peach Bowl squad. “Celebrating historical achievements of our athletics program is an exciting way to honor the legacy of our former student-athletes,” Iowa State’s Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “Thirty years ago, a team of Cyclones coached by Earle Bruce overcame not being selected for a bowl game the year before and won eight games to qualify for the third bowl game in school history. Recognizing that team’s achievements – through the throwback uniform promotion and auction – will be a chance for Cyclone fans to either recall some fond memories or learn about a significant team from the past.”
The Cyclones wore replica uniforms – white jerseys with cardinal/gold piping around the shoulders and cardinal numbers with a gold outline and gold pants – very similar to what was worn in the Peach Bowl against North Carolina State. The Cyclones’ helmet was gold with the letters I-S-U on a capital letter I. Iowa State also wore a “Throwback Game” patch on its jersey.
The 1977 Cyclones were picked to finish sixth in the Big Eight Conference, but the team felt it had something to prove after being overlooked for a bowl the prior year after an 8-3 season. The Cyclones won three of four non-league games to open the season before recording a 7-0 triumph over Missouri to begin league play. It was ISU’s first shutout of the Tigers since 1934. A 24-21 victory at ninth-ranked Nebraska (first win in Lincoln in 17 years) the following week catapulted the Cyclones into the national rankings at No. 16. A loss at sixth-ranked Oklahoma knocked Iowa State out of the polls but closing the season with conference wins over Kansas State and Oklahoma State earned the Peach Bowl bid against the Wolfpack.
Led by 1,000-yard rusher Dexter Green and first team all-conference selections Tom Randall (DT), Mike Stensrud (DT), Kevin Hart (CB) and All-American nose guard Ron McFarland on defense, the Cyclones won five Big Eight Conference games for the first time in school history.
