Iowa State was late arriving to the stadium on Saturday due to an accident in front of them on the way to the stadium. It wasn’t enough to slow down Iowa State beating Baylor 23-13.
Baylor took the lead early on Iowa State going right down the field and striking first. Iowa State would answer with a 6 play drive and a 36 yard touchdown strike from Zeb Noland to Allen Lazard. On the reception Allen Lazard set the Iowa State receiving yards record.
Iowa State and Baylor would trade field goals in the second quarter. Finally Iowa State would take the lead on a 64 yard touchdown pass from Zeb Noland to Hakeem Butler. Iowa State went into halftime leading 17-10.
The rest of the second half, the only scoring for both Iowa State and Baylor would be field goals. Baylor would threaten in Iowa State territory twice, but the Cyclone defense stood tall and forced a fumble and Reggie Wilkerson intercepted a pass to hold the Baylor offense at bay.
Iowa State would come away with the victory 23-13. Zeb Noland completed 50% of his passed for 180 yards and two touchdowns. David Montgomery surpassed the 1.000 yard rushing mark for the season. He finished the afternoon with 27 carried for 144 yards. Montgomery left the game late in the fourth quarter with that appeared to be a lower leg injury. Hopefully things work out for him and he is back next week against Kansas State.
Iowa State will now travel to Kansas State next Saturday to finish off the regular season. The Cyclones are now 7-4 on the season and 5-3 in Big 12 play.
