 Week 8: Badgers

Well, the team that is good enough to win a school record 9 consecutive road games has now lost the last 3 games played in Kinnick.  Hard to figure out what is going to happen over these last 4 games.

At least coming out of the bye week, we have our starting O line back, and we have Kittle back starting at tight end.  Let’s hope with the bye week C.J. and has receiving group have relentlessly worked on the routes and timing.  And the Iowa coaches have been able to dream up some ways of changing up our sluggish offense just a bit.  

So the Hawks go back on the road, under the lights, for another Penn State white out. As it was in 2009.  Please someone, block a punt.
