2012 Liberty Bowl streaming, TV schedule, radio and more

Reese Strickland-US PRESSWIRE

The Liberty Bowl features rematch of the season opener between Tulsa and Iowa State.

Iowa State and Tulsa will replay their season-opening clash on Jan. 31 at the Autozone Liberty Bowl in Memphis. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on ESPN and streaming broadcast on WatchESPN. When the teams first met on Sept. 1 in Ames, Iowa State rallied from a 16-7 first quarter deficit to defeat Tulsa, 38-23.

The Iowa State Cyclones (6-6, 3-6) are playing in their third bowl in four seasons under coach Paul Rhoads. The Cyclones have fought quarterback controversy all season, using three different signalcallers. Junior Steele Jantz leads the team in almost all passing categories, but freshman Sam Richardson replaced Jantz in the season's penultimate game against Kansas. Richardson started the finale against West Virginia and struggled, going 13-31 for 162 yards but managing three touchdown throws. Richardson will start the Liberty Bowl, and could become just the fourth quarterback in program history to win a bowl game.

Tulsa (10-3, 7-1) rebounded from its loss in Ames to win the Conference USA title, winning 10 games for the fourth time in six seasons. A bowl win would match the program's all-time single-season win record, set in 2008. Golden Hurricane quarterback Cody Green threw 49 passes in the opening loss, but Tulsa has refocused on the running game. Green only topped 40 attempts once more this season -- a loss to SMU -- and halfbacks Trey Watts and Ja'Terian Douglas spurred a ground attack that has averaged 240.1 yards per game, 11th in FBS football.
