FINAL: West Virginia 31, Iowa State 24

The monkey is finally off the back of West Virginia.

After five straight losses, the Mountaineers have finally snapped the streak and attained bowl eligibility.

The WVU defense made enough plays, including recovering a fumble in the end zone late in the fourth quarter to support Tavon Austin and the WVU offense.

Iowa State battled behind a strong performance from freshman quarterback Sam Richardson, but fell just short of the playmaking Mountaineer attack.
