BGN Video: Chestnut, Shell help lead WVU

In West Virginia's win Saturday, the Mountaineers were able to make enough plays on both sides of the ball to hold off Iowa State.

Two of the players who made those big plays were cornerback Terrell Chestnut and running back Rushel Shell.

When the Iowa State was driving with a chance to tie the game in the second half, it was Chestnut that intercepted a pass in the end zone to get the ball back to the West Virginia offense and allowed the Mountaineers to get some insurance points to get the victory.

For Shell, it's been a frustrating month or so as he worked his way back to being ready to go after suffering an injury against Baylor. For the first time since getting hurt, Shell was over 100 yards against Iowa State. The sophomore carried the ball 22 times for 150 yards and a 54-yard touchdown for West Virginia.
