2012 Gamewatch #5: Iowa vs. Minnesota

Recap of Last Week: The amazing effort from walk-on fullback Mark Weisman (for Heisman!!!) wasn’t enough to lift the Hawkeyes past Central Michigan.  A late special teams mishap by the Hawks allowed the Chippewas to score 9 points in the last 45 seconds to secure the victory.  Weisman continues to show gaudy numbers with 330 rushing yards and 6 TD’s in just two games.

Now to this week…This is a huge week!  Saturday is the 100th anniversary of Homecoming at the University of Iowa and it’s time to bring the beloved Floyd of Rosedale back home where it belongs in Iowa City.  These two things along with some revenge from last years stunning loss should be more than enough motivation for our Hawks.  The University of Minnesota comes into the contest at 4 – 0 with victories over a couple powder puff squads.  The B1G Ten title is definitely still within range and if the Hawks put it all together there is no reason we can’t come out on top.  If you’re not back in IC for Homecoming find your way to the nearest Barney’s Beanery location this Saturday – remember it’s Car-mageddon this Saturday on the 405.

The Deal: Enjoy 35% off food and 50% off beverages for all who wear Iowa Gear (offer valid during the game only).  Please be courteous and gratuitous to Barney’s Staff – they will be very busy this week.
