AMES, Iowa - Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen said Tuesday the university will appeal a $25,000 fine levied by the Big 12 Conference for violating postgame celebration policies when fans stormed the field following a home win over West Virginia last weekend.

The league told Iowa State that Commissioner Bob Bowlsby had determined university officers did not take the "appropriate precautions to create a safe environment" for the Mountaineers. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen was critical of school efforts, calling the scene "unprofessional" and suggesting his players were not in a "safe place."
