AMES, Iowa – Iowa State announced Monday that Saturday’s game against No. 17 Texas that kicks off at 6 p.m. CDT in Jack Trice Stadium will be a sellout. Both teams are 3-0.

The only remaining tickets (fewer than 200) are single tickets randomly located throughout the stadium.

“Interest in our football program is high,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “Whatever the final attendance figure is Saturday, no team in school history will have attracted the crowds that this team has through the first three games of any prior Iowa State season. It’s a great time to be a Cyclone.”

The game will be televised by FX.

Best Cyclone home attendance through three games (min. 150K)
154,566 (1982)
154,370 (1981)
153,624 (2007)
151,586 (1983)
151,452 (2009)

110,757 (2011) – Cyclone 2011 attendance through two home games

Iowa State needed to sell 43,810 tickets for the Texas game to vault 2011 to an all-time attendance best through the first three games of an Iowa State season.
