Iowa is 0-10-1 all-time against teams ranked #1. Coincidentally, the last night game played at Kinnick also involved a battle against the #1 team in the country.. in 1992, Miami beat Iowa 24-7.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said left tackle Dace Richardson and center Rafael Eubanks did not practice Tuesday because of injuries, and their status for this weekend is uncertain. Don't believe that for one minute..
You may be shocked to find out that Bob Brooks, the Voice of the Hawkeyes for 55 years thinks his boys have a chance:
"Iowa has got a good shot at this," he said. "Drew Tate is a quarterback that can get ever so hot, and this is going to be a chance or him to perform and do something to gain national stature. This is a pretty salty football team, really."Bob Brooks, Voice of the Hawkeyes
