IOWA CITY — Iowa has fared well against highly ranked teams at home and the Hawkeyes will get another chance on Saturday by hosting 4th-ranked Michigan. Iowa has won five of its last six games at home against teams ranked in the top five and coach Kirk Ferentz says home field advantage is part of it.
Ferentz says teams like Michigan can strike with big plays in every phase and it takes a complete effort to have a chance.
Ferentz says while the Hawkeyes do not view this as a revenge game Michigan’s 42-3 win over the Hawkeyes in last year’s Big Ten Championship game is in hot rotation at the football facility.
Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 11 o’clock, with the pre-game at 9 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO
AMES — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell says he is not surprised by the turnaround at Kansas. The Jayhawks are off to a 4-0 start, the most wins by a KU team since the 2009 squad finished 5-7.
The Jayhawks started 1-8 a year ago under coach Lance Leipold before posting a stunning victory at Texas late in the season.
Dual threat quarterback Jalon Daniels has 11 touchdown passes for the Jayhawks and has rushed for four others.
Kickoff on Saturday in Lawrence is scheduled for 2:30.
