Iowa Keys to the Game

With the Iowa Hawkeyes coming to town, Pitt has a chance to put another nail in the B1G coffin. So far this season the B1G is 1-10 against other Power 5 (PAC-12, SEC, ACC, and Big 12) conferences and there are four more opportunities this weekend to keep the downward trend moving. Headed into the season, Iowa was viewed as a dark horse B1G champ and playoff contender, but early season...

Iowa searching for answers on offense

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) This was supposed to be the year that Iowa flourished under offensive coordinator Greg Davis. Three games in, the Hawkeyes look inept. Iowa (2-1) scored only 17 points against Ball State and Iowa State and is 102nd out of 128 FBS teams in scoring at 21.7 points per game. What is troubling about those numbers is that the Hawkeyes basically brought back their...

IOWA – PITT Preview 2014

You would think that at the one quarter point in the season we’d have a solid idea of how good the team is and how well the primary players are producing.  It seems not to be the case this season for PITT.  Granted we are 3-0 going into Saturday’s noon game against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Heinz Field but really doesn’t feel like 3-0 given who the wins were over. Delaware and...

At First Glance: Pitt vs. Iowa

After three weeks, Pitt still stands unbeaten. Next up? The Iowa Hawkeyes. With Boston College's win over top ten USC this weekend, Pitt's win over the Eagles looks to be more significant. But with all due respect to Boston College, the Iowa game at the beginning of the season was the one a lot of fans were pointing to as the Panthers' first true test. So far, though...

Kirk Ferentz ices Iowa State kicker Cole Netten and strategy backfires

Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Iowa State Cyclones: Betting odds, point spread and tv info

Knock knock… who is there? Owen… 0-2…. That was the joke that the Iowa campus police sent to their counterparts at Iowa State.

Coverage of the game between Iowa and Iowa State will air on ESPN...

Iowa Hawkeyes WR Tevaun Smith’s incredible one-handed TD grab (Video)

Iowa is getting everything it can handle and thensome from FCS in-state rival Northern Iowa. So much so that it needs every last play from Jake Ruddock and the passing game to keep ahead of the visiting Panthers. One such pass came at the exact right time, and gave us perhaps the best play of the weekend in the Big Ten. With Iowa up just 17-13, Ruddock dropped a dime in to junior...

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 11: Iowa Hawkeyes

Oh, Kirk Ferentz, where do I even begin? After three years of steady regression the Hawkeyes bounced back to an 8-5 record in 2013 (and Hawkeye fans celebrated like they won the dang national title; apparently expectations are low in Iowa City), bouncing back from a 4-8 mark the year before. More importantly, Iowa survived [&hellip (Visited 100 times, 100 visits today) The post...
