Series of comments: West Virginia leads the all-time series 5-1 with all six games between the two teams since 2012 when the Mountaineers participated in the conference. The lonely victory of Iowa State in the series crossed three times in 2013. West Virginia won all three games between the teams that were played in Ames, including an outburst of 49-19 in the first season of Matt Campbell. Last season, the Cyclones pitched a one-score game (20-16) in Morgantown. This is the very first meeting between the teams before the month of November.

One key for the state of Iowa on Saturday starts with a quick start. Through five games, West Virginia has accumulated early leads of 10-0, 14-0 (twice) and 21-0 (twice) against its five opponents. The Mountaineers are the only FBS team that has not played in a game so far this season. Iowa State trailed 20-0 last season in Morgantown before eventually losing the comeback after a 20-16 loss.
West Virginia is led by Heisman Trophy, hopefully Will Grier, who has already completed touchdown passes to 10 different receivers this season. Iowa State, meanwhile, is expected to start his third quarterback this season with real freshman student Brock Purdy who is likely to make his first career start.
Iowa State plays five of his last seven games this season, starting with Saturday night's game. It could be a cold start of that piece, because the forecast according to The Weather Channel should yield 53 degrees at the kickoff.
