Iowa State gets ready for West Virginia on Saturday

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -

Not long after Paul Rhoads finally thawed out from the coldest game in the history of Iowa State's home stadium, the Cyclones' coach recalled a night at West Virginia in 2005 that was even more bone chilling.

Rhoads was Pittsburgh's defensive coordinator when the Panthers played in the Backyard Brawl in blustery snow and single-digit readings. He says the wind made that game feel colder than last week's home finale against Kansas.

Still, Rhoads says the frigid Kansas win has mentally prepared Iowa State (2-9, 1-7 Big 12) for its first visit to West Virginia (4-7, 2-6) on Saturday. Temperatures for the late afternoon kickoff in Morgantown are expected to be balmy by comparison in the 30s.

The game marks the regular-season finale for both teams.
