Iowa Tries to Move On From NDSU Loss


The Iowa football team still has every chance to win the Big 10 West again, but the Hawkeyes have a lot of work to do after being stunned at home by North Dakota State 23-21 on Saturday. Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz knew the #1-ranked team in the FCS would be dangerous, and gave the Bison full credit after the game. As for his own team, Ferentz said the biggest problem was that they failed to do all the little things well that made them successful in their first two games.

The Hawkeye offense spent a lot of time in 3rd down and long situations on Saturday, and Ferentz said that made things too easy for the NDSU defense.
