Melissa Dixon and the Iowa women’s basketball team didn’t pick up exactly where they left off against Syracuse in Saturday’s game with Idaho State.
Des Moines Register reporters Andrew Logue and Rick Brown recap the Hawkeye football team’s regular season and give their bowl predictions:
CHICAGO — Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight season. Miller has averaged 265 yards of total offense and accounted for 29 total touchdowns while leading Ohio State to a 12-0 record despite a knee injury early in the season. The Buckeyes will play […]
The Big Ten Conference’s annual postseason awards show reflected Iowa’s football turnaround. Lots of solid supporting players, but no one stealing headlines.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Any way you spin it, sevens keep showing up. Iowa’s football team has won seven games heading into Friday’s 11 a.m. battle with Nebraska at Memorial Stadium.
