Iowa State’s road trip to Morgantown to take on West Virginia will kick off at 1 p.m. on Oct. 30 on ESPN+, the Big 12 announced on Monday.

The Cyclones are slated to square off with No. 8 Oklahoma State at Jack Trice Stadium this upcoming Saturday while West Virginia will visit TCU. Iowa State currently sits at 4-2 overall and 2-1 in Big 12 play while West Virginia is 2-4 and 0-3 in the league.

Iowa State has dominated the series between the two programs since 2018, winning each game by 15 or more points, including last year’s 42-6 dismantling of the Mountaineers in the regular-season finale.

The Cyclones’ last trip to Morgantown, in 2019, was notable as the breakout game for star tailback Breece Hall, who rushed for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries in a 38-14 win.
