AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has hired former players Joel Lanning and Kyle Kempt as assistant coaches.
Cyclones coach Matt Campbell said Wednesday that Lanning will be a quality control...

Iowa State sophomore quarterback Zeb Noland is transferring after losing the starting job to freshman Brock Purdy.
Coach Matt Campbell announced on Monday that Noland, who has already used his redshirt season, will leave at the end of the semester.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Only guaranteed one series, third-string quarterback Brock Purdy made it count and ended up playing the rest of the game for Iowa State.
Purdy completed 18 of 23 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns, and also rushed for a touchdown, to help Iowa State beat No. 25 Oklahoma State 48-42 on Saturday.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — After a resurgent year in which Iowa State finally broke out the Big 12 basement, the Cyclones can't seem to catch a break.
Iowa State's canceled opener put it a week behind everyone else on its schedule and it's been a climb ever since. The Cyclones (1-3, 0-2 Big 12) will be without starting quarterback Kyle Kempt (knee injury) for the fourth week in a row when they travel to No. 25 Oklahoma State (4-1, 1-1) on Saturday.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Fifth-ranked Oklahoma will begin life without star running back Rodney Anderson this weekend in its Big 12 opener at Iowa State.
Red flags aside, it's still a matchup the Sooners (2-0) should win with ease.
Iowa State quarterback Kyle Kempt is considered "day-to-day" with a knee injury and it is unknown whether he will play Saturday against No. 5 Oklahoma in the Big 12 opener for both teams.
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy considers Taylor Cornelius something of a dinosaur, and not because his starting quarterback's 23rd birthday is coming up the day after the Cowboys play their third game of the season.
Cornelius arrived on campus as a walk-on in 2014, had a redshirt season and then attempted only 24 passes in nine games over three years while primarily backing up Mason Rudolph. Now, as a fifth-year senior, Cornelius is coming off a victory in his first career start.
The play that showed just how skilled Iowa State junior Deshaunte Jones is doesn't count. Technically, it never happened.
That doesn't mean the Cyclones aren't excited about it.
Jones took a short pass from Kyle Kempt near the sidelines and wove through South Dakota State's defense for a 55-yard touchdown to put the Cyclones up 7-0 on Saturday. Moments later, the skies opened up for a series of storms so severe that Iowa State was forced to cancel the game.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The first big weekend of the college football season was marred by weather problems across the country Saturday, with officials calling off games at Nebraska and Iowa State and delays hitting stadiums from the Air Force Academy in Colorado to the Southeast.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — For decades, Iowa State's slogan could have easily been "first in tailgating, last in the Big 12."
The Cyclones appear to be on the verge, finally, of being known more for their play than the pre-game scene in Ames.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — For the first time in a career spanning six seasons and three schools, Iowa State's Kyle Kempt will finally enter a campaign as a No. 1 quarterback.
Kempt and the Cyclones couldn't be happier about it.
Kempt, who turned around a remarkably unremarkable career in 2017 by throwing 15 touchdowns in eight starts and leading Iowa State to a bowl win, was awarded a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA in the offseason.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State quarterback Kyle Kempt has been granted a sixth season of eligibility by the NCAA.
The Cyclones announced the NCAA's decision on Friday, saying that the governing body granted Kempt an extension of eligibility after considering the totality of the circumstances surrounding his transfer from Oregon State and Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said he will support quarterback Jacob Park if he intends to transfer to another school.
Campbell released a statement Monday night after the Des Moines Register quoted Park as saying he asked for a release from his scholarship.
Park, a junior, was Iowa State's starting quarterback until early October, when he went on an indefinite leave of absence. The Cyclones then turned to senior Kyle Kempt, who is 5-2 as a starter.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Iowa State and Kansas State have each played more quarterbacks this season than most coaches would want in a decade, a combination of injuries and circumstances leading to unprecedented upheaval.
The Cyclones lost starter Jacob Park to some personal issues after four games, then got six games out of backup Kyle Kempt. He went down with an injury last week at Baylor, forcing Zeb Noland into the game, while QB-turned-linebacker Joel Lanning has taken snaps under center.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has four guys who can play quarterback.
But Joel Lanning is better as a linebacker, Jacob Park is on a leave of absence and Kyle Kempt is battling through an undisclosed injury, leaving freshman Zeb Noland as the possible starter for Saturday's game at Baylor (1-9, 1-6 Big 12). Kempt's health is crucial for Iowa State (6-4, 4-3) given that he and Noland are the only available quarterbacks left with two games to go.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — TCU is no longer unbeaten.
The Horned Frogs have only themselves — and a resurgent Iowa State defense — to blame.
Kyle Kempt threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns and 25th-ranked Iowa State upset fourth-ranked TCU 14-7 on Saturday, leaving the Big 12 without an undefeated team heading into November.
Some things to watch during Week 9 of the Big 12 Conference, when two of the league's five games Saturday are matchups of Top 25 teams:
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State senior quarterback Kyle Kempt's first career start produced the biggest upset in school history.
Kempt might not be headed back to the bench anytime soon.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — This Iowa State team is different.
Kyle Kempt passed for 343 yards and three touchdowns, including a 25-yarder to Allen Lazard that put the Cyclones ahead with 2:19 left, and Joel Lanning made plays on offense and defense to lead Iowa State to a stunning 38-31 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday.
