Iowa State and Tulsa to play in 2012 AutoZone Liberty Bowl | Sports & Recreation
The Big 12 is coming back to Memphis.
Conference USA champion Tulsa will get another shot at Iowa State in this year's Liberty Bowl.
The Cyclones come to the Bluff City sporting a 10-and-3 record.
The matchup against Tulsa is actually a rematch of the first game of the season for both teams...Iowa State won that one 38-23 in Ames.
The New Year's Eve contest will mark the 40th anniversary of the one and only time the Cyclones played in the Liberty Bowl, that 1972 team was coached by none other than the legendary Johnny Majors.
The Liberty Bowl kicks off a 2:30 New Years Eve.
The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
