Cyclones top Tigers by a point to win 59th Liberty Bowl!

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Leading up to the 59th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl, most pundits thought this would be a high-scoring affair between Iowa State and Memphis.


It was a defensive struggle on this chilly Memphis afternoon and the good guys came out on top by a 21-20 final. 

It was a classic Iowa State victory in the sense that nothing came easy. A controversial fumble call on a 1-yard David Montgomery gave Memphis the ball down one with just under four minutes to play. Iowa State’s defense bent but didn’t break, got a crucial stop when needed and clinched the fourth bowl victory in program history.

Allen Lazard was named Game MVP as he led the way for the Cyclones by tying a Liberty Bowl record with 10 receptions to go with 142 yards and a touchdown.

Iowa State finished 8-5 in Matt Campbell’s second season. The Tigers fell to 10-3 with the loss.

We are on the ground in Memphis and will have loads of coverage for you guys in the coming hours so stay tuned and enjoy the win!
