Cyclone defense digs in for Liberty Bowl win

After ISU's first lost fumble of the year, a late stand by the defense powered the Cyclones to victory.

With victory in sight, Iowa State's David Montgomery fumbled a would-be touchdown with just over four minutes to go in the Liberty Bowl -- the Cyclones first lost fumble all season. What to many appeared as another historic, Iowa State miscue, head coach Matt Campbell was actually excited for: because, as Zach Hanley explains, Campbell knew it meant it would give his defense a chance to win ISU's first bowl game since 2009.
