Last Saturday Iowa fans were reminded, that almost doesn’t count…losing their 7th game in a row in heartbreaking fashion to Northern Illinois 30-27. While the lost stings every Hawk fan, there was certainly reason to believe the season will get better. The offense showed signs of life, and Jake Rudock was a big part of that.
This week, Iowa focuses on their next challenge; the Missouri State Bears. This will be the first meeting between the two schools and with both teams coming off close loses, expect both sides to be pumped to claim their first “W” of the season.
Missouri State is led by their Junior Quarterback Kierra Harris, completing 17-of-33 passes for 189 yards last week against Northwestern State. Much like Iowa, Missouri State struggled to find a consistent offense.
Although Iowa found success on the field, it’s correcting the mistakes that will determine if Iowa will be successful from here on out. Key factors in this game will be how much improvement Iowa can make from week 1 to week 2. Iowa’s secondary weakness’ need to be addressed and the offense has to take a step forward and not regress like they did in the second half.
