There is a full slate of games on the Saturday before New Years Eve, and one of the those games is an early kick off.
It’s the AutoZone Liberty Bowl when the Iowa State Cyclones and the Memphis Tigers face off in this one. With this game being in Memphis it should be basically a home game for them, but the Cyclones fans seemed to have really jumped on board so they should be well represented too.
This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
Iowa State Cyclones
The Iowa State Cyclones are one of the most surprising teams in all of college football.
Most people believed they wouldn’t even be making a bowl game, and if they were they would just barely squeak in. But coming into this game they will be looking for their eighth win of the season.
But coming into this game they are struggling a bit. They have lost three of the last four games, including a one point loss to Kansas State in their last game.
Even though they have lost three of the last four games they have covered three of those spreads, and pushed on the other.
For Iowa State they have been good on both sides of the ball, but especially on the defensive side of the ball. Coming into this game they are giving up only 21 points per game.
On the offensive side of the ball they are led by quarterback Kyle Kempt who has been the quarterback since week six.
He comes into this game having thrown for 1473 yards 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.
One thing to watch in this game is if star running back David Montgomery who got injured during the beginning of the last game.
He says he is ready to play, but he is still officially questionable for this game. If he can’t go that is a really big loss for the team.
On the other side of this match up is the Memphis Tigers who have one of the best offenses in all of the country, and will need to use that to their advantage in this game.
They come into this game averaging 47.7 points and over 548 yards per game. On the defensive side of the ball they aren’t very good averaging 33.4 points per game.
The Tigers are led by quarterback Riley Ferguson who would like nothing more then to end his college football career on the high note.
He comes into this game having thrown for 3971 yards, 36 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
With the defense not slowing down much this year, the Tigers are going to have to use their high powered offense and try to win probably a very high scoring game.
