The West Virginia Mountaineers rolled into the week on a high note as the No. 6-ranked team in the country and had a chance to climb even higher. Instead, West Virginia was wiped out by Iowa State.


West Virginia jumped out to a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter, but Iowa State quickly answered back with a score of its own. When the Cyclones took a 13-7 lead before the end of the first quarter, everything came tumbling down for the Mountaineers.

A team that never needed to make a comeback this year until Saturday showed an inability to do so throughout this game. Short drives quickly became the norm for West Virginia and a prolific passing game produced just 100 yards, meanwhile, Grier spent much of the game on his back and was hit repeatedly.

Behind a dominant performance by its defense and great control of the football to kill the clock, Iowa State coasted to a 30-14 victory for one of the bigger upsets in a Saturday filled with them.

As the final seconds ticked away, Twitter didn’t hold back from roasting the Mountaineers after a stunning loss.
