Illinois-Iowa Preview

(AP) - On the surface, it appears as though No. 22 Iowa's resurgence has been fueled by the so-called ''New Kirk Ferentz.'' In reality, the Hawkeyes are better because their defense is better - and knocking opponents around has been the foundation of every good team coached by Ferentz. Iowa (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) surged back into the Top 25 for the first time in five years this week...

No bend, no break in Beathard

IOWA CITY — The human reaction for what had to have been the 15th or so hit quarterback C.J. Beathard took in last week’s game at Wisconsin would’ve been taking his helmet off and screaming his head off at anyone and everyone.A doctor can’t operate if everyone in the room is napping. A quarterback can’t quarterback if no one is blocking No. 58. That would’ve been UW outside...

Iowa notes: Heartland renaming, fourth-down call, injuries

IOWA CITY — In the weeks that followed Iowa’s win against Iowa State, few Hawkeyes knew where the team stashed the Cy-Hawk Trophy. After Iowa beat Wisconsin 10-6 on Saturday, the program placed the Heartland Trophy in the most unavoidable location: the atrium entering the football complex.Unlike the ancient Iowa-Wisconsin series, the Heartland Trophy has little history.

The Iowa Hawkeyes make a Statement in Madison

Iowa has been in football purgatory for the last decade or so. Aside from 2009, it’s been much the same story of inconsistency, suspect quarterback play and news of the weird off the field — most notably with the running back position. Fast forward to 2015, and things looked to be much the same. 2014 was disappointing, and there weren’t too many reasons anyone in their right...

Can the Iowa Hawkeyes Seize the Moment Against Wisconsin?

Relevancy is something Hawkeye football has been lacking for close to half a decade. That could all change by Saturday afternoon. It’s all out there for Iowa and the only question that remains is whether or not the Hawkeyes can reach out there and grab it. A program that has seemingly been stuck in a place of mediocrity for over five seasons now has a chance to reclaim a spot...

Iowa Hawkeyes Finally Have a Playmaker in C.J. Beathard

What was the narrative heading into the 2015 season for the Iowa Hawkeyes? Hell, what has it been every season since 2012? Besides Kirk Ferentz’s status and contract, lack of playmakers is probably pretty high on that list. Sure, the Iowa Hawkeyes have been a pipeline to the NFL for guys who play in the trenches, but they have lacked any real game changers at the skill positions...

Video: Iowa’s Marshall Koehn Beats Pittsburgh With 57-Yard Field Goal To End Game

Most college coaches wouldn’t be comfortable sending their kicker out for a 57-yard field goal to win the game. Kirk Ferentz is not one of those coaches. With the game tied at 24, Hawkeye kicker Marshall Koehn blasts one from 57 out to send Pittsburgh home with a loss. As you can imagine, the team mobs him after the win becomes official.

Plenty of Room Back on the Iowa Hawkeye Bandwagon

Entering the 2015 season, the dark cloud encompassing the Iowa Hawkeye football program for the last several years seemed to be turning into a monsoon.

This gave Kirk Ferentz detractors all the ammo they needed to point that the end was near. The hand wringing...
