Recap of Last Week: Last Saturday is a day you really want to forget about as a Hawkeye fan. There was very little to cheer about in Iowa’s 38 – 14 loss at the hands of Penn State. The usual dependable Iowa running attack was held to just 20 yards. Compounding the loss were a series of injuries to starting offensive linemen Andrew Donnal and Brandon Scherff. The good thing is that both men will be replaced this week by experienced players.
Now to this week…The next two weeks the Hawkeyes head on the road against teams that score a lot of points. This week the Hawks go to Evanston, IL to take on the Northwestern Wildcats. The past few weeks defense, particularly pass defense, has been optional for Northwestern. Northwestern has the worst pass defense in the B1G Ten and their secondary is still depleted going into this week. Further, last week they gave up 342 yards through the air (543 total yards) when they surrendered a 28 to 16 4th quarter lead to Nebraska. This week look for a healthy Mark Weisman (…for Heisman!!!) to return to form and open up the passing game for JVB and the Hawkeye offense. This week we are the morning game so get up and at em and get to your favorite Barney’s location to cheer on our Hawkeyes.
We look forward to seeing everyone. GO HAWKS!!!
