Know the Badgers foe: Iowa

  This is the 11th in a 12-week Friday series looking at the Wisconsin football team's 2014 opponents. Any Wisconsin football fan perusing the team's schedule recognizes the opportunity in front of the Badgers for 2014. No Ohio State. No Michigan. No Michigan State. No Penn State. Without the traditional powerhouses on the slate, there really are only a select few games...

Hawkeyes Fall Short in Outback

Some 8-5 seasons are better than others. It all comes down to perspective, really. For instance, when James Morris was true freshman, he was on a team that finished 8-5 and with a bowl win. As a senior, he was on a team that finished 8-5 with a bowl loss. The difference between those two seasons is enormous as the former was the 2010 season with unmet expectations. This year’s...

Hawkeye Defense Saves the Day

The Iowa defense came to play on Saturday and that’s a good thing, because the offense did more harm than good for half of the contest. Iowa spotted Michigan a 7-0 lead after their first play, a Jake Rudock pick six, then the Hawkeyes missed one field goal and botched another attempt in the first half and at one time were down four turnovers… Those are things that you rarely...

Hawkeyes Fade in Columbus

Iowa was 7-9 on third downs in that first half as the offense looked absolutely glorious with its employment of three tight end formations…over and over again. Tight ends had eight receptions in the first quarter (but 11...

Hawkeyes, Cyclones resume unpredictable rivalry

Iowa has won at Iowa State just once since 2003, even though the Hawkeyes have been favored each time. Iowa is the favorite again in Saturday's in-state showdown after Iowa State played poorly in its season-opening loss to Northern Iowa. That means very little, especially when the series is played in Ames, as it will be this season. Iowa was ranked No. 8 when the unranked Cyclones...
