IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says senior corner Riley Moss will not play in Saturday’s game at Wisconsin. Moss suffered a knee injury in the 9th-ranked Hawkeyes’ October 9th win against Penn State and missed the loss to Purdue a week later.
Ferentz says a young offensive line needs to grow up for the stretch run. Iowa is only averaging 116 yards of rushing per game and just over three yards per carry.
That offensive line goes up against the top run defense in the Big Ten. The Badgers allow just over 53 yards on the ground per game.
Iowa beat the Badgers during the COVID shortened season 28-7 in Iowa City last year. It snapped Wisconsin’s four game winning streak in the series. You can hear the Iowa-Wisconsin game on AM-1300 KGLO starting with the pre-game at 9 o’clock Saturday morning with the kickoff in Madison scheduled for 11 o’clock. You can hear “Hawk Talk” with Kirk Ferentz tonight on KGLO starting at 6:30
AMES — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell says it will be up to the leadership of his team to help prevent a letdown this week. The 22nd-ranked Cyclones climbed back into the Big 12 race with a win over Oklahoma State and now get set to visit West Virginia.
Campbell on the role of the team leaders.
A concern for the Cyclone defense is West Virginia running back Leddie Bell.
The Cyclones picked up a victory in their last visit to West Virginia but Morgantown is always a tough place to play. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 o’clock Iowa time on Saturday.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The U.S. women sent Carli Lloyd into retirement with a 6-0 rout of South Korea in St. Paul last night. Lloyd didn’t score in her final match, but it hardly mattered because the night was all about her. She was subbed out in the 65th minute and sobbed as she left to a standing ovation by the crowd of 18,115 at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lloyd’s final match was her 316th with the national team, the second-most international appearances of any player. She scored 134 goals for the United States, third most in team history, along with 61 assists.
