AMES, Iowa (AP) - Though the season is just a few weeks old, Iowa State appears to finally have a potent offense.

Sophomore running back David Montgomery is a big reason why.

Montgomery has emerged as a star for the Cyclones, rushing for 194 yards and three touchdowns in two games on 5.7 yards per carry. He also caught a career-high five passes for 53 yards in last weekend's 44-41 overtime loss to Iowa.

Montgomery and Iowa State (1-1) travel to face Akron (1-1) on Saturday in search of its third straight 40-point game, something the program hasn't accomplished since 1976.
