"And don't get me wrong, I think it's great the Memphis Tigers are playing in the Liberty Bowl and I'm gonna be there with my Tiger blue on".

Yes they can. Memphis has been bad this year in the defensive backfield, giving up nearly 300 passing yards a a game.

Dream start for Iowa State as Kyle Kempt floated a 52-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Hakeem Butler for the first score of the game.

The game's Over/Under (O/U) has been set at 144 points with Iowa State opening as a 2-point favorite. The Sooners are averaging 10.4 3-pointers per made game in each win this year and shooting.403 from deep. "The fact that we can come here and leave a legacy like that, it means everything to us and our fans and the community as well".

Kansas women's basketball went into one of the toughest environments in the Big 12 Conference and overcame a seven-point deficit and forced overtime before Iowa State edged the Jayhawks, 71-69, on Thursday night inside Hilton Coliseum.

"We talk about it every day", Ferguson said.

The Cyclones led 21-20 and had third-and-goal from the 1 when David Montgomery fumbled as he was crossing the goal line.

Kansas State leads the nation with 1.5 blocks allowed per game while Iowa State is 48th with 2.7 blocks allowed per game. "What I can tell you is our kids have worked extremely hard and I think bowl practice is something you go through that's tricky because it is a very long amount of time from the last time you played to this time you played". In three road games versus the Cyclones, Manning is averaging 11.0 points per contest. "That's how we're treating it".

Iowa State fans will miss Lazard next year, but they will remember this performance forever. "And we are seeing visitor levels here at Graceland that are comparable to previous Liberty Bowl weeks". ISU lost that one, as well as the 2011 Pinstripe Bowl. The Cyclones lose a lot of leadership as they attempt to replace a senior class that includes Lazard and linebacker Joel Lanning, among others. The game usually features an SEC opponent.

For their parts, the Cyclones have strung wins together after a rocky start to the season. Norvell agreed to an extension this month, while Campbell got a new six-year contract worth $22.5 million.

Both Teams are fun to watch. Iowa State has lost three of its last four games. Allen Lazard finished the afternoon with 10 rec, 142 yards and one touchdown. Miller has caught 92 passes for 1,407 yards and 17 touchdowns this season to rank second among all FBS players in touchdown catches and yards receiving per game. After facing three top-20 teams (No. 1 UConn, No. 8 Texas and No. 16 South Florida) to close the month, OU's strength of schedule now is third in the nation according to RealTimeRPI.com.
