President Wintersteen statement on Cyclone football season

Congratulations to Coach Campbell and the Cyclone football team for a truly remarkable season, capped off by a tremendous Fiesta Bowl victory. I am so proud of this outstanding team. Not only for winning this bowl game, but for inspiring us with their Cyclone Spirit of perseverance, hard work and high expectations.

Despite many challenges, our student-athletes demonstrated a commitment to make this season one that all Cyclone fans will remember! They’ve achieved at the highest level, not only on the field but in the classroom — a league-leading 44 Cyclones on the all-academic team. A huge thank you to Big 12 Coach of the Year Matt Campbell and his staff and every single player for creating the most memorable season in decades. Go, Cyclones!
