West Virginia vs. Iowa State 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Justin K. Aller

West Virginia attempts to break a five-game losing streak and become bowl-eligible when it plays Iowa State on Friday.

After starting the season 5-0, the West Virginia Mountaineers have lost five straight games and still need one more win to become bowl-eligible. WVU will travel to Ames, Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones on Friday in their latest attempt to break the streak.

West Virginia (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) appeared to be in contention for a BCS game at the start of the season, but their defense has routinely failed them and has knocked them well out of the Top 25. Last week, the Mountaineers nearly upset the Oklahoma Sooners, but lost by one point, 50-49. The WVU offense showed it can still play with anyone as they gained 778 yards against Oklahoma. West Virginia still ranks fourth in passing yards (344.8) and eighth in points scored (40.9) per game.

Iowa State (6-5, 3-5) has struggled in Big 12 play this season, but is coming off a 51-23 win over Kansas. The Cyclones play a more low-scoring game than the Mountaineers, averaging 25.3 points per game and holding opponents to 22.6 points per game. This is the final game of the regular season for Iowa State; WVU closes out the season against Kansas on Dec. 1.

Game Time: Friday, Nov. 23, 3:30 p.m. ET

Location: Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, Iowa

Point spread: West Virginia favored by 1.5 points
