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.
Kempt became an unlikely starter for the Cyclones midway through last season after Jacob Park left the team. Kempt started off his career with a 38-31 win at then-No. 3 Oklahoma and finished with a 66.3 percent completion rate, the best in school history.
