West Virginia could've packed it in after its Big 12 title hopes crashed last week.

The Mountaineers, bolstered by  quarterback Skylar Howard made sure that didn't happen.

Howard threw for 330 yards and tied a career high with five touchdowns and No. 19 West Virginia rolled past Iowa State 49-19 on Saturday.

Pettaway burned his redshirt and ran for 181 yards in his debut for the Mountaineers (9-2, 6-2 Big 12), who outscored Iowa State 28-3 in the second half.

Kene Nwangwu had a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Cole Netten kicked four field goals to lead Iowa State (3-9, 2-7). But settling for three instead of converting for seven points -- and losing the turnover battle 4-0 -- killed the Cyclones chances. Iowa State finishes the regular season 3-9.
