AM-1300 KGLO — Iowa men vs. Omaha — pre-game 6:00, tipoff 7:00



MINNEAPOLIS — Iowa is a win away from making a return trip to the Big Ten Championship game. The Hawkeyes took advantage of two late turnovers to edge Minnesota 13-10 on Saturday in Minneapolis, as you heard on AM-1300 KGLO. The Hawkeyes won despite giving up 312 yards of rushing and a Black Friday win over Nebraska would send them back to Indianapolis.

That’s Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz who credits the veterans for turning around a season that appeared to be unraveling after a 3-4 start.

Kickoff between Iowa and Nebraska on Friday is scheduled for 3 o’clock with the pre-game at 1 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO



AMES — The Iowa State Cyclones take a 4-7 record into their season finale at 4th-ranked TCU. The Cyclones sputtered in the red zone in a 14-10 loss to Texas Tech in their home finale on Saturday. Twice in the second half the Cyclones were stopped on fourth and goal.

That’s ISU coach Matt Campbell. The Cyclones lost despite rolling up 422 yards of total offense.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 3 o’clock.



VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) — Theo Day threw five touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading Northern Iowa’s 58-14 rout of South Dakota. The six total touchdowns — all in the first half — were Day’s career high. He completed 21 of 30 passes for 280 yards. His touchdown passes were spread among five receivers. Sergio Morancy had four catches for 135 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown. The Panthers had 593 yards of total offense. South Dakota managed only 236 yards of total offense. Northern Iowa’s Matthew Cook made three field goals to establish the school and MVFC record for most career field goals with 67. Despite winning four of their last five games and taking top-ranked South Dakota State to the wire last week, UNI was not selected for the FCS playoffs on Sunday.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys sacked Kirk Cousins a career-most seven times in a 40-3 victory over Minnesota. That slammed the Vikings’ seven-game winning streak to a screeching halt. Tony Pollard had two touchdown catches for Dallas with a career-high 189 yards from scrimmage. Dak Prescott was flawless at quarterback, Ezekiel Elliott rushed for two scores in his return from injury and Brett Maher made four field goals including a 60-yarder to end the first half. The Cowboys improved to 7-3 with their biggest road win in franchise history. The Vikings fell to 8-2.



IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeye men take a 3-0 record into tonight’s home game against Omaha. The Hawks are coming off a win at Seton Hall. The Mavericks are 1-3 with the lone win against Idaho.

Sophomore forward Frankie Fidler leads Omaha in scoring at just under 13 and a half points per game.

Tipoff is scheduled for 7 o’clock tonight with the pre-game at 6 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO



AMES — Iowa State outscored Milwaukee 17-8 to start the second half and cruised to a 68-53 win in Ames on Sunday. The Cyclones led by as many as 24 as they move to 3-0.

IOWA CITY —- Caitlin Clark had 24 of her game-high 33 points in the second half as the 4th-ranked Iowa women pulled away to a 73-62 win over Belmont Sunday night that you heard on AM-1300 KGLO.

Clark says defense was the key as the Hawkeyes improved to 4-1 and bounced back from a loss at Kansas State.

AMES — The 7th-ranked Iowa State women raced out to a 30-17 lead at the end of one in a 99-76 win over Columbia in Ames. Ashley Joens had 33 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Cyclones. She finished seven of 10 from three point range.
