More than 50,000 tickets have been purchased for Friday’s 7 p.m. game against No. 2 Oklahoma State.  Iowa State drew more than 50,000 fans at every home game this season, a Cyclone first. Iowa State has drawn more than 50,000 fans to Jack Trice Stadium in November eight times, including twice this season in the Cyclones’ win over Kansas Nov. 5.
