(Saturday, November 30)

Final Score: Iowa State 52, West Virginia 44 (3OT)

Morgantown, WV (SportsNetwork.com) - Grant Rohach threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Justin Coleman in the third extra session and the Cyclones' defense came up with a big stop as Iowa State outlasted the West Virginia Mountaineers for a 52-44 triple-overtime victory in a Big 12 Conference battle at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Rohach finished with 331 yards and four touchdowns on 25-of-39 passing for Iowa State (3-9, 2-7 Big 12) as it picked up its second win in as many weeks. Rohach also added 66 yards and a score on nine carries. Shontrelle Johnson tallied 72 yards and a score on 18 carries while Quenton Bundrage made seven catches for 93 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Coleman scored on two of his five receptions which went for 91 yards. Jacques Washington anchored the Cyclones' defensive unit with eight tackles, one fumble recovery and two interceptions.

Both of Washington's picks came late in the fourth quarter as Clint Trickett struggled for West Virginia (4-8, 2-7) down the stretch. Trickett completed 21-of-37 attempts for 356 yards and two touchdowns. Mario Alford racked up 215 yards and a score on eight catches while Charles Sims rushed for a game-high 149 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. Nick Kwiatkoski registered a game- high 14 stops and also made one interception for the Mountaineers, who suffered their third consecutive setback to end their 2013 campaign.

WVU had total control in the early stages of the contest. Josh Lambert gave the hosts a 3-0 lead less than four minutes after the opening kickoff as he connected on a 49-yard field goal try. After Kwiatkoski's interception gave the Mountaineers a short field for their next drive, Sims rushed seven yards for a score at the 4:16 mark of the first period to extend the advantage to double-digits. The Mountaineers' received another boost from their defense as Karl Joseph returned a fumble by ISU's Aaron Wimberly 38 yards for a touchdown.

The Cyclones finally answered with just over a minute left to play in the first stanza as Rohach broke away for a 54-yard touchdown run.

WVU continued to dominate as Trickett threw a 17-yard strike to Kevin White just five seconds into the second period. Sims dashed 76 yards into the end zone with just over nine minutes left before halftime to give the Mountaineers a sizeable, 31-7 lead.

Rohach connected with Bundrage at the 7:23 mark of the second quarter to cut the deficit down to 14 points and neither side managed to score again before the intermission.

Both offenses were shutout in the third quarter. The Cyclones began their rally as Johnson scored on a three-yard run just one minute into the fourth period. WVU answered immediately as Trickett completed a 76-yard touchdown pass to Alford on the next play from scrimmage to give the Mountaineers a 38-21 lead with 13:42 left in regulation.

ISU refused to go away as Rohach threw a 62-yard pass to Bundrage for a touchdown. After Cory Morrissey recovered a fumble by WVU's Vernon Davis, Cole Netten converted a 31-yard field goal try with 4:21 remaining in the fourth quarter to bring the Cyclones within seven points.

Trickett was picked off by Washington on WVU's next drive, which returned the ball to ISU at the Mountaineers' 33-yard line. Rohach found Coleman for a 19- yard touchdown pass to tie the score at 38 with only one minute left in the period. WVU moved into ISU territory before Washington picked off Trickett on the final play of the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime.

Netten made a 40-yard field goal attempt in the first overtime session and Lambert matched him with a 41-yard field goal.

The place kickers traded field goals in the second extra period as well.

Rohach completed the go-ahead touchdown pass to Coleman on the first play of the third overtime. Trickett threw a 22-yard pass to Sims on the Mountaineers' next play, but they were unable to move three yards over their next four plays as Deon Broomfield stopped Daikiel Shorts at the 2-yard line on fourth-and- goal.

Both offenses had very productive outings. ISU amassed 575 yards of total offense and moved the chains 26 times. The Mountaineers finished with 568 total yards and 19 first downs.
