Liberty Bowl Lines - Memphis vs. Iowa State Odds

2022 Liberty Bowl NCAA Football Betting

For the second time in recent years, Iowa State landed a spot in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl on Dec. 29 with a matchup against Memphis and will play in its sixth bowl game under head coach Matt Campbell. Given the amount of support the Cyclone fanbase showed back in 2017, and the persistence of Pollard, Iowa State started to become the favorite among Big 12 schools to make the trip to Memphis. The love between Iowa State and the atmosphere in Memphis extends all the way down to the coaching staff. The 2017 Liberty Bowl was Campbell’s first bowl game under Iowa State, and he brought his first trophy to Ames with the 21-20 win over the Tigers.
