TEMPE, Ariz. - Iowa State made it count when it mattered. After suffering four turnovers, the resilient Cyclones forced a key turnover of their own late in the game to stop a Minnesota rally and claim the 2009 Insight Bowl Thursday night, 14-13 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
 
The Cyclones received a stellar effort from running back Alexander Robinson, who rambled for 137 yards, his sixth 100-yard game of the season, to help control the game. Robinson, who earned Insight Bowl Offensive Player of the Game honors, was aided by a career-high 83 yards receiving from Jake Williams, as the Cyclones improve to 7-6 on the season and 3-7 all-time in bowl games.
 
First-year head coach Paul Rhoads became the first Cyclone skipper to record a winning mark in his initial season since George Veenker went 5-3 in 1931. It was the first Cyclone victory over Minnesota since 1898.
