IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the Hawkeyes are only focused on getting a win at Northwestern. Ranked second just a couple of weeks ago, the Hawkeyes have tumbled to 19th and may have squandered the Big Ten West title with back-to-back losses to Purdue and Wisconsin. Ferentz says after a 27-7 loss to the Badgers the Hawkeyes’ mental toughness will be tested.

The offense has been frustrated after averaging just 12 points over the last three games.

Ferentz says there is no reason to make changes to a young and struggling offensive line this late in the season.

Running back Ivory Kelly-Martin will not play against Northwestern due to a foot injury and Ferentz says the Hawkeyes will still be without corners Riley Moss and Terry Roberts. Kickoff is scheduled for shortly after 6 o’clock with the pre-game starting at 4 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO. Join us for Hawk Talk tonight on KGLO starting at 6:30.




AMES — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell wants his team to remain focused on the process and not the results. A senior heavy Cyclone team that opened in the top ten is now 5-3 after a loss at West Virginia and will need help to get back in the Big 12 race.

Campbell says it is up to the veterans to provide leadership during the stretch run.

Campbell says after winning the Fiesta Bowl last season the Cyclones have been a marked team.

Iowa State hosts Texas on Saturday night with the kickoff slated for 6:30
