The challenge for Iowa State after stunning Oklahoma on the road was to see if it could handle success.

Kansas made sure the Cyclones didn't have to face much adversity on a soaking wet Saturday in Ames.

David Montgomery ran for a career-high three touchdowns and Iowa State throttled Kansas 45-0 for its second straight win.

Trevor Ryen added a 68-yard punt return for a score for the Cyclones (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), who held the Jayhawks to a season-low 106 yards -- Iowa State's least yards allowed since 1963 -- and shut out a Big 12 opponent for just the fourth time.

"They've been through a lot here. They're not into everybody patting them on the back," said Iowa State coach Matt Campbell, whose team went 3-9 last season. "All they're into is working and they've done a really good job in setting the tone."

Montgomery turned an interception into a 4-yard TD run to open the scoring, and Ryen's return gave Iowa State a 14-0 lead.

A bad snap on a punt by Kansas (1-5, 0-3) led to Montgomery's 1-yard TD plunge that pushed the Cyclones ahead 24-0, and Marchie Murdock's 8-yard TD reception to end the third quarter made it 38-0.
