WEEK 3: UNI

As last week wore on, Iowa fans on the message boards and podcasts seemed to be worried that with the emotional win over ISU, and the looming showdown with the Badgers, that the Hawks would be at risk against the Panthers.

Based on our defense mainly, and the fact UNI has not beaten Iowa since 1898, I obviously did not agree with that, with my score prediction.

I knew the defense would give UNI problems, and boy did they.  Panthers, just 6, that is SIX, net rushing yards.  Yes they got one TD on our first team defense, but only due to a blown call on a great 3rd down play by Gervase (pass interference), that allowed UNI to score the one TD on the first team.  The second TD came on the reserves.
