 Week 3: North Dakota State

Well, that was most disappointing.  From the failure of the offense to run the ball, the failure of the defense to stop the run, and failure of the coaching staff to call plays to get a 1st down when we needed one.  And even the fans in Kinnick, who grew quieter during the 4th quarter as the Bison went on that long drive that made the score 21-20.  

But there is some good news.  Iowa can still play for a Big Ten title.
