The back end of Iowa’s defense is getting younger. Sophomore cornerbacks Greg Mabin and Desmond King were listed as starters Friday when the Hawkeyes released their latest football depth chart. Redshirt freshman linebackers Bo Bower and Josey Jewell also could get significant snaps when the season kicks off Aug. 30 against Northern Iowa. How about […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Nobody would blame Jordan Lomax for being a little moody. He opened Iowa’s 2013 football season as a starting cornerback, but suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of the first game.

Why not Iowa? When the discussion turns to contenders for the inaugural College Football Playoff, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit says the Hawkeyes deserve at least a mention. “At the end of the day, I look at Iowa with all those positives.

Is Ed Podolak the most underappreciated icon in Iowa football history? The answer is yes — at least when it comes to having his name etched into a place of permanence. Podolak was not included among the nine former players displayed on the Kinnick Stadium Wall of Honor, which was unveiled last year, nor has […]
The Iowa-Iowa State football game is nearing sellout status. A university release issued today says only 900 tickets are available for the Sept. 13 Cy-Hawk showdown, and those will be only be sold as part of season-ticket purchases.

IOWA CITY, Ia. – Dillon Kidd’s punting career can be measured in miles, as well as yards. Before joining the Iowa football program in January, Kidd spent a couple seasons at Florida State, then took a detour to El Camino (Calif.) Community College.

Is college football fun? It’s a simple question, with potentially complicated answers, that gets lost in the NCAA’s ongoing legal strife. “Yeah, it is fun,” Iowa linebacker Travis Perry said. “It’s a lot of work, but when you reap the reward on Saturdays, when you get to go out and play in front of 70,000 […]
