2014 Football: Running Back Stable?

The 2013 season has just come to an end but there are a few things running through my mind as I think about next season.

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...

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. Canzeri enters Iowa's most crucial stretch of the season more valuable than ever. Canzeri did more than just give Weisman and Bullock a breather in Iowa's last game, a 38-14 romp at Purdue on Nov. 9. The sophomore revived Iowa's stumbling...

The Iowa Hawkeyes are 5-4 and 2-3 in the Big Ten but with a win over Purdue on Saturday the Hawkeyes will become bowl eligible. Iowa and head coach Kirk Ferentz are 3-1 in Bowl games in the past five years.
