Game Day Vitals

  • Opponent: Iowa Hawkeyes The Hated Hogeyes
  • Location: Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City Smelly Place, Smelly State
  • Gametime: 11:00 AM (CST)
  • TV: ESPN2
  • Radio: KFAN and the Gopher Radio Network (100.3 FM in the Twin Cities). Also available through the IHeartRadio app.

Opponent Information

  • Official Website Better Iowa Website
  • Blog: Black Heart Gold Pants
  • Conference: Big Ten
  • Record: (2-2)
  • Last Game: Loss to Central Michigan, 32-21. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
  • Common Opponents: None
  • What you should know: They have a big fullback who is running for a lot of yards. They have a AIRBHG chewtoy who needs to transfer and escape the inevitable wrath. They are having a tough year, with close losses to both rival Iowa State and MAC doormat Central Michigan. Iowa sucks. Minnesota has not won at Iowa since 1999. The Gophers have won 2 in a row and Floyd likes it in Dinkytown.
  • One more thing to know: WE HATE IOWA.
  • Yet another thing I feel is worth sharing: Ncf_i_rosedale_bl_600_medium

Coaches and Players

  • Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz (14th season)
  • Key Offensive Player: RB Mark Weisman. I'm ignoring his season averages b/c they are skewed by playing but not carrying the ball in the first 2 games. In game 3 against Northern Iowa, Weisman went off for 24 carries, 113 yards, and 3 TD's. Last week against Central Michigan? 27 carries, 217 yards, 3 TD's. None of this matters if AIRBHG is in a smitey mood.


  • Key Defensive Player: LB Anthony Hitchens. Leads team with 22 solo tackles.
