IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says tight end Erick All will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The Michigan transfer was injured in the first quarter of a win at Wisconsin and had 21 catches, including three for touchdowns.

All is the second All-Big Ten caliber tight end to be lost for the season.

After a win at Wisconsin, the Hawkeyes face another bruising challenge when they host Minnesota. Iowa has won eight straight in the series but six of those have been by a touchdown or less, including a 13-10 triumph in the Twin Cities last season

The Hawkeyes are 6-1 despite being without their starting quarterback and top three tight ends and will continue to rely on defense and special teams.

The offense continues to struggle but the run game has showed some life and the Hawkeyes rushed for 200 yards against the Badgers.

Ferentz says the Hawkeyes realize they need to find ways to win.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 2:30 with the pre-game at 12:30 on AM-1300 KGLO. Also on KGLO tonight at 6:30, it’s the Hawk Talk program.



UNDATED (AP) — LSU is ranked No. 1 in the preseason AP Top 25 women’s basketball poll for the first time in school history. The defending champion Tigers were ranked second in 1977 and third twice in 2004 and 2005 in the preseason poll, but never No. 1 until now. LSU received 35 first-place votes. No. 2 UConn received the other top vote. The University of Iowa is ranked third with UCLA and Utah rounding out the top five. The season begins Nov. 6.



ST. LOUIS — Drake is the preseason favorite in the Missouri Valley Conference preseason men’s basketball poll. The Bulldogs lost several key players from last year’s team that won the Valley tournament title and played in the NCAA Tournament, but do return reigning conference player of the year Tucker DeVries.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who says the transfer portal makes preseason polls even less reliable

With veterans like Roman Penn, D.J. Wilkins and Garrett Sturtz no longer playing, Tucker DeVries is taking on a bigger leadership role.

Northern Iowa has been picked to finish second in the preseason poll. Point guard Bowen Born returns after averaging 18 points per game last season and is approaching this as his final year even though he could return for a COVID season.

Born feels the experience he has gained is a plus.

The Missouri Valley Conference held their men’s basketball media day in St. Louis on Tuesday.
