We feel like we’ve got a pretty good...

Iowa's offense exposed in loss to Iowa State

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Once again, Iowa failed to run the ball as it has in the past. But the Hawkeyes couldn't throw it either. The result was another disheartening loss to rival Iowa State and lingering questions about an offense that can't get untracked.

Iowa's Canzeri proves value vs. Purdue

Jordan Canzeri was essentially forgotten for most of the year as Iowa leaned on fellow running backs Mark Weisman and Damon Bullock.

The sophomore revived Iowa's stumbling...
