Reeling Iowa hosts improved Minnesota
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Few things have bothered Iowa more over the past two seasons than losing the "Floyd of Rosedale" trophy to Minnesota and then failing to win it back.
The struggling Hawkeyes have a lot more than a bronze pig to worry about right now.
Iowa (2-2) hosts the unbeaten Gophers (4-0) on Saturday. The matchup has taken on even more meaning for the Hawkeyes in the wake of last weekend's collapse against Central Michigan.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the Hawkeyes have to move on and focus solely on Minnesota.
The Gophers are 4-0 for the first time since 2008.
