What to Know

A Big 12 battle is on tap between West Virginia and Iowa State at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. West Virginia will be home again for the second game in a row.

They scored first but ultimately less than Texas in their contest last week. The Mountaineers fell to Texas 42-31. West Virginia's loss shouldn't obscure the performances of WR T.J. Simmons, who caught seven passes for 135 yards and one TD, and QB Austin Kendall, who passed for 367 yards and three TDs on 46 attempts. That was the first 300+ yard effort for Kendall this season.

Meanwhile, after losing to TCU the last time they met, Iowa State decided to demonstrate that turnabout is fair play. Iowa State blew past TCU 49-24. The oddsmakers were on Iowa State's side, but they didn't give the team enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide.

Iowa State's victory lifted them to 3-2 while West Virginia's defeat dropped them down to 3-2. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Mountaineers are 13th worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 105 on average. To make matters even worse for the Mountaineers, the Cyclones rank seventh in the league when it comes to passing yards per game, with 327.6 on average. So the West Virginia squad has its work cut out for it.
