               RECOGNIZING IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL

  Mr. GRASSLEY. Mr. President, I want to visit with my colleagues about 
something that hasn't happened in Iowa for over 100 years. Over the 
weekend, the Iowa State football team completed their regular season 
play. The Cyclones are having a noteworthy season. They secured the 
first place rank in the Big 12 Conference's regular season after 
winning five consecutive conference games and eight overall conference 
wins this season.
  The good news doesn't stop there for the Iowa State football program. 
The Cyclones finished first place in league play, for the first time 
since 1912, when they won the Missouri Valley Conference. This has 
earned the Cyclones their well-deserved spot in the Big 12 title game 
on December 19, the first ever Big 12 championship appearance in Iowa 
State University's history.
  I want to applaud the Cyclones for their historic season. So many 
fans, including me, will be rooting them on for the Big 12 championship 
game.
  I suggest the absence of a quorum.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will call the roll.
  The legislative clerk proceeded to call the roll.
  Mr. LEAHY. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the order for 
the quorum call be rescinded.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
