LINCOLN, Neb. – Who needs karma when you have Canzeri? In the past month, Nebraska’s football team has seen its prayers answered against Northwestern, silenced Michigan’s Big House and found joy in Happy Valley with an overtime victory at Penn State. None of those teams, however, can match Iowa’s rushing attack. That’s why the Hawkeyes, […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Adam Cox is a humble, soft-spoken walk-on from rural Illinois who doesn’t play for fame but loves the game of football. “It just feels good being in there making a difference,” the Hawkeye fullback said. “When somebody notices it, that’s fine. And if they don’t, that’s fine, too. As long as we’re […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Mark Weisman seemed to play a speed faster against Michigan than he had in recent weeks. It wasn’t by accident. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz thought Weisman looked worn out, so he held him out of practice for much of last week. “ We put him over in the bullpen for awhile,” […]

With bowl eligibility no longer a concern for the Iowa football team — and a two-week break before Michigan visits Kinnick Stadium for a Nov. 23 showdown — it’s OK to speculate about postseason destinations. The best part? The 6-4 Hawkeyes still have a chance to enhance their status. “We […]
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Iowa’s running game has lost its way the last month, something that Mark Weisman takes personally. “We want to get back to where we were before, and where Iowa football needs to be,” said Weisman, Iowa’s leading rusher this season with 747 yards heading into Saturday’s 11 a.m. game against Purdue […]
Something has happened to the Iowa football team on its way to becoming a dominant force on the ground this season.
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Every football team has its rituals and rites of passage. Those inside the Iowa program, however, say what happened with the Miami Dolphins is rare. Offensive lineman Jonathan Martin recently quit the Dolphins, alleging harassment by teammate Richie Incognito. Miami coach Joe Philbin was an Iowa assistant from 1999-02 and part […]
