Former Iowa fullback Lew Montgomery has been named an honorary captain for the Hawkeyes’ game against Arkansas State on Saturday.

Iowa will play the Red Wolves in a televised home game. Kickoff in Kinnick Stadium set for 11:02 a.m.

A few thousand tickets still remain for the nonconference meeting. Iowa has sold out 38 of its last 39 home games.

Montgomery, a Waterloo native, lettered as a fullback four times from 1989-92 under former Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry. He also played in the 1991 Rose Bowl, and the 1991 Holiday Bowl.

Lew ran for 1,093 yards during his Iowa career, scoring 17 touchdowns while averaging 4.2 yards per carry. He was a 1991 All-Big Ten honorable mention when he rushed for 498 yards and posted eight touchdowns.

Montgomery will accompany the other Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pregame coin-flip. He will also be in the locker room with the Hawkeyes before and after the game, in addition to being on the sidelines during the contest.
