West Virginia is catching the Iowa State football team while its riding momentum coming off one of the biggest wins in school history.

This successful season for the Cyclones is a culmination of great coaching and players executing at the proper times. This hasn’t always been the case for a team struggling to find its footing in a competitive Big 12 Conference.

The Cyclones are now at the top after spending years at the bottom. No one really expected this, but head coach Matt Campbell is leading the charge as one of the hottest young coaches in the game today.

ISU is a program on the rise and it will continue to emerge as a national contender with every win this season. If the Mountaineers want to slow down this new force, it has to watch out for these five players.
