AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Matt Campbell and the Cyclones have agreed to a new six-year deal worth $22.5 million, increasing Campbell’s annual compensation from $2.1 million to $3.5 million per season.
Campbell, who led Iowa State to a 7-5 record and its first winning season in Big 12 play in 15 years, was expected to be among the top names in the offseason coaching carousel. Instead, the second-year coach can focus on getting the Cyclones ready for their first bowl game in five years.
Iowa State beat a pair of top-five teams this season, TCU and Oklahoma, after doing so just once in its history.
The Cyclones will find out what bowl they’ve been invited to on Sunday.

DECORAH — Nick Wurm had 23 points to lead the NIACC men to a 95-68 win over the Luther junior varsity in Decorah last night. Gary Mills had 15 while Jaycob Payne added 10 for the Trojans, who are now 7-1 on the season. NIACC will travel to Southeastern on Wednesday night.
IOWA CITY — Junior forward Nicholas Baer is expected to play on Tuesday night when Iowa visits Virginia Tech in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The reigning Big Ten “Sixth Man of Year” suffered a broken finger in preseason practice and coach Fran McCaffery says his return will give the Hawkeyes a much needed veteran presence.
“Especially when you go on the road”, said McCaffery. “Guys that have been in those kinds of road environments and performed successfully are who you need so he will be out there a lot.”
Defense has been a concern in a 4-2 start to the season and that will be a key against a Hokie squad that is averaging 102 points per game.
“They are as good of transition team as I have seen in a long time”, added McCaffery. “This is a slashing team that has multiple three point shooters so that is going to spread your defense out.”
Tuesday will be the fourth meeting between Iowa and Virginia Tech, with the Hokies winning the previous three contests.
All three previous games were part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Virginia Tech won 69-65 in 2006 and 95-79 in Blacksburg in 2012, and 70-64 in Iowa City in 2009.
Coverage of the Iowa-Virginia Tech game tonight will come on KGLO after the Mason City High-Des Moines East doubleheader.
