WEEK 2: Iowa State

This week, we lead off with the Hawkeye defense.  After two weeks, it is looking like this is the kind of Iowa defense that could give the Hawks a chance to win - every game.

After the Clones got a 1st and goal at the Iowa 3 on their first possession, the Hawkeye defense employed the classic bend but don’t break, and when the Clones faced a 4th and goal from the 1, the Kinnick fans made so much noise that ISU had a false start, and had to take the chip shot field goal.  I suppose they thought there would be more scoring done by their offense in this one.
