Iowa State RB David Montgomery says he is healthy for Liberty Bowl

Iowa State running back David Montgomery will be good to go as the Cyclones return to bowl season for the first time in 5 years.

Montgomery confirmed on Friday that he is “100 percent” and will play in the Liberty Bowl as Iowa State faces off against Memphis, according to the Des Moines Register’s Tommy Birch.

Montgomery was injured against Baylor in the fourth quarter on Nov. 18. The sophomore from Cincinnati, Ohio only had 4 carries in the Cyclones’ regular-season finale at Kansas State one week later.

Montgomery rushed for 1,094 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017. He forced a record 102 missed tackles on the season as the Cyclones posted their first winning record since 2012.

The Liberty Bowl will be played on Dec. 30 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium — the regular-season home stadium for the Tigers. The game will kick off at 11:30 a.m. CT and can be seen on ESPN.
