On a day when nothing came easy for Iowa’s football team, John Lowdermilk made things way too difficult. The junior safety provided a spark with his third-quarter interception and 71-yard return. It would have been a touchdown, but after a replay review, it was determined he dropped the ball before crossing the goal line. “It […]
TAMPA, Fla. – If you can’t convert third-and-inches, your options really start to dwindle. That was the biggest takeaway from Wednesday’s Outback Bowl, as 14th-ranked Louisiana State bullied its way to a 21-14 win over Iowa. Remember all the talk about LSU’s freshman quarterback? 83 photos: All the Outback Bowl action from Tampa Outback Bowl […]
TAMPA, Fla. – It doesn’t matter who LSU’s quarterback is, if Iowa keeps coughing up the football. An interception and muffed punt helped the Tigers seize control of today’s Outback Bowl in the second quarter. The interception came when Hawkeye quarterback Jake Rudock underthrew Damond Powell on a deep ball when Powell had gotten behind […]
TAMPA, Fla. – Kirk Ferentz still knows how to work a room. In the final press gathering before today’s Outback Bowl, the Iowa coach lightened the mood with a little humor.

Much has been said about Iowa senior linebackers James Morris, Christian Kirksey and Anthony Hitchens this season. LSU coach Les Miles added another pound of praise on Sunday. “I think they play the scheme as well as I’ve seen it played,” Miles said. “It’s a traditional scheme, but there’s nothing traditional about the way they play […]
TAMPA, Fla. – A lot can be learned from a single football game. For example: Louisiana State’s 35-21 victory over Auburn, back on September 21, taught Tigers coach Les Miles his team could beat any opponent. Now, he’s trying to apply those lessons to Wednesday’s Outback Bowl showdown with Iowa. “The Auburn game and the […]
TAMPA, Fla. – Why would Jake Rudock migrate north? It’s a question Iowa’s sophomore quarterback was having to answer Saturday, as the Hawkeyes met with the media. “It was the best fit, and also getting the opportunity to play (NCAA) Division I football,” Rudock said. “It’s a little give and take, and then who recruits […]
TAMPA, Fla. – In an age when fullbacks are fading, Mark Weisman is flourishing. Spread offenses and multiple-receiver sets may be all the rage, but brute force will always play a role in Iowa’s approach. “It hasn’t gone away, yet,” Weisman said. “And I think it’s going to continue to stay.” The Hawkeyes will meet […]
