Playing in the coldest game in Jack Trice Stadium history, Iowa State won its first Big 12 game of the 2013 season Saturday. 

Iowa State (2-9, 1-7 Big 12) beat Kansas (3-8, 1-7) 34-0 on senior day with a kickoff temperature of 8 degrees, knocking a game from the 1991 season with a kickoff temperature of 17 out of the top slot for the coldest game in Jack Trice Stadium history. 

The Cyclones got on the board with 6:43 remaining in the first quarter when ISU quarterback Grant Rohach connected with running back Aaron Wimberly for a 58-yard touchdown. Iowa State never looked back. 

ISU kicker Cole Netten added a 22-yard field goal with 13:06 to play in the second quarter to go up 10-0. 

Iowa State scored 17 points in the third quarter. Netten kicked a 21-yard field goal, Rohach hit wide receiver Quenton Bundrage on a 15-yard pass and running back James White found the end zone with 1:09 remaining to put the Cyclones up 27-0 heading into the fourth quarter. 

Rohach finished 15-of-20 through the air with 300 yards passing, an interception and two touchdowns. The Cyclones were led on the ground by running back Shontrelle Johnson, who rushed for 84 yards on 13 carries and score Iowa State’s final touchdown with 10:50 to play.

The win is Iowa State’s first Big 12 victory of the season and the first conference win since it beat Kansas 51-23 last season. The Cyclones end their season Saturday, Nov. 30 against West Virginia on the road at 3 p.m.
