Iowa State Drills Kansas, 34-0

Playing on a slip-and-slide track, with banks of snow behind the end zones and children sledding down the hillside, Iowa State buried Kansas in a flurry of points, winning its first conference game, 34-0, to send its seniors off with a final win at Jack Trice Stadium

As hard a season as this has been, something finally came easy for the Cyclones.

Playing on a slip-and-slide track, with banks of snow behind the end zones and children sledding down the hillside, Iowa State buried Kansas in a flurry of points, winning its first conference game, 34-0, to send its seniors off with a final win at Jack Trice Stadium and give its fans something to cheer about, at last.

California native Grant Rohach picked a nice, if somewhat surprising, time to record a career day, slicing Kansas up for 300 yards and two scores on 14-for-19 passing, with an interception, despite temperatures hovering between three degrees fahrenheit and 10.

On a night the Cyclones' maligned defense recorded its first shutout since 2001, a heap of seniors capitalized on the opportunity to end their JTS careers on a bright note:

Wit:

  • Shontrelle Johnson and James White ran for touchdowns, Justin Coleman recorded a career-high 78 yards receiving, Jeremiah George forced a fumble, Jacques Washington recovered it, Jansen Watson nabbed his first career interception on a diving catch in the end zone, Kirby Van Der Kamp pinned a punt inside the 20-yard-line and Willie Scott batted a pass.

    Missing from the laundry list is Jeff Woody's wish to see Rohach take a knee to end the game. Rohach fumbled in the end zone and the Jayhawks ran the clock out, but no matter: Woody got to sing the fight song as a victor, one last time at home.
