David Montgomery is really good. That is something that Cyclone fans know, but it never hurts to be reminded.
Montgomery is ranked second in the conference in rushing yards with 101.7 yards per game. He is rushing for 4.5 yards per carry and also has six touchdowns to add on to that. Stats-wise, Montgomery has been incredible, but the stats don’t even reflect his impact as a whole.
Iowa State was a run first offense at the beginning of the season and other teams saw this. Teams would load the box and try to stop Montgomery, and even a running back as good as Montgomery can’t break five tackles every play. The offense was very predicable and Montgomery couldn’t do much to help that.
Everything changed once Brock Purdy stepped into the picture. Purdy’s ability to not only throw the ball, but run the ball has opened up the offense a ton.
