MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Iowa State will be missing defensive backs Kamari Cotton-Moya and Evrett Edwards for the Liberty Bowl against No. 19 Memphis on Saturday.

Iowa State athletic department spokesman Mike Green says Edwards was ineligible for the game and Cotton-Moya was suspended for a violation of team rules. The reason for Edwards' ineligibility wasn't specified.

Both players are fifth-year seniors, effectively ending their college careers.

Cotton-Moya has recorded 250 career tackles, including 60 this season. He has a team-high three interceptions this season. Edwards has 51 tackles this season.

Their absence hampers an Iowa State defense trying to limit a Memphis team that averages 47.7 points.
