This was the Cyclones' first 8-win season since 2000. The end of the season did not go as well.

The junior has scored in double figures in all 12 games for the Cyclones and led Iowa State with 30 points in Thursday's overtime win over Kansas. Memphis will look to continue to force turnovers in Saturdays game. Ferguson drove Memphis to the Iowa State 40 with more than two minutes remaining and two timeouts in his pocket, but fired four straight incomplete passes to give the ball back to Iowa State with 1:52 to play.

Memphis: Memphis' only two losses of the season came at the hands of the nation's only undefeated team: Central Florida. Though it was deemed one of the best games of the year, UCF defeated Memphis in a (62-55) with 2OT. Iowa State was attempting to become the first Football Bowl Subdivision team in recorded history to play an entire season without losing a fumble. Carleton is the only player in a Power 5 conference to average at least 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game this year.

The Wildcats went 1-1 in a Las Vegas tournament in November, captured a road win over Vanderbilt Dec. 3, dropped a narrow decision to Tulsa in Wichita on Dec. 9, and most recently, edged Washington State in Spokane, Washington on Dec. 20. Iowa State is also third in the league and ranks 15th in Division I with 5.7 blocks per game. The Tigers were blown out in their last two bowl appearances in the 2016 Boca Raton Bowl to WKU. Even more impressive is that the Cyclones were able to hold off Memphis despite a touchdown-nullifying decision by the referees.

Both Teams are fun to watch. Memphis has only finished a season in the Top 25 once before, when it ended up 25th in 2014. Iowa State has been scraping and fighting for wins all season.They have shown to have enough guts to beat most teams favored against them. The Tigers racked up yardage and points all season long, but they did so against defenses that weren't exactly formidable.

So what side do you need to be all over in the Liberty Bowl? If so, the Liberty Bowl just might be the bowl game for you this season, as the offenses should find themselves having free reign.
