MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Iowa State’s secondary will be severely depleted for today’s 11:30 a.m. Libery Bowl game against Memphis.
Iowa State football spokesperson Mike Green said this morning that two safeties will not play — senior captain Kamari Cotton-Moya and senior Evrett Edwards.
Cotton-Moya was suspeneded for the game. Edwards was deemed ineligible.
Obviously, both absences hurt ISU deeply, but Cotton-Moya’s is particularly pronounced.
He totaled 60 tackles this season while battling injuries and led the Cyclones with three interceptions.
