Happy Returns in Hawkeyes Rout

The Iowa Hawkeyes obliterated Western Michigan on Saturday in Kinnick Stadium, a rout that was sparked by back to back punt returns for touchdowns by Kevonte Martin-Manley. He’s the first player in the Big Ten to do that since Garcia Lane of Ohio State in 1983 and just the third in league history.

Clean It Up against W. Michigan

At his Tuesday news conference, Kirk Ferentz talked about one of the next steps for progress for this year’s Iowa team. “I think we’re practicing hard.  I think we’re doing that.  Last week, the effort was there and the guys were trying.  It’s not that they weren’t trying.  We just have to practice a little bit cleaner and then hopefully our execution will show up...

That said, how they have gotten there and what they have shown may be different than what some expected.  I’ll take a look at each of Iowa’s remaining eight opponents, list...

Iowa Uses 2 QBs

Iowa used two quarterbacks on Saturday for the first time since the Insight Bowl to end the 2011 season. Starter Jake Rudock and backup, C.J. Beathard, accounted well for themselves. They talk about it in this premium video.
