Steele Jantz led the way for Iowa State (2-0) with 279 yards passing and four touchdowns and White added a pair of OT touchdowns.
White’s 1-yard run put the Cyclones on top 38-31 in double overtime, but Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg’s 23-yard TD pass to Keenan Davis tied it back up.
Iowa went ahead 41-38 on Mike Meyer’s 41-yard field goal. But the Hawkeyes defense had no answer for Jantz and White in extra time.
