Iowa – Iowa State Football on FSN Midwest
Today is the day of the big game in the state of Iowa. As a native Iowan and a Cyclone fan, I will be watching this game on FS Midwest at Noon. Iowa is 8 point favorite to win this game, but I hoping for an entertaining and close game. So, check back for my input on this state rivalry game and battle for the Cy Hawk Trophy.

Getting ready for kick-off in less than 30 minutes. I am wondering how many fans will be wearing cardinal today? Should be an interesting site to see on TV.
Update 12 Sept 2009 12:58 PM:
After 1 quarter, it is Iowa 7, Iowa State 3. The two teams traded turnovers, but neither team was able to capitalize. Iowa State was able to get the ball moving in the latter part of the quarter to score a 45 yard field goal. However, the gamble on the onside kick failed and two penalties allowed the Hawkeyes to score a touchdown. It has been a good game and sea of cardinal looks good on TV. Go STATE!
Update 12 Sept 2009 1:46 PM:
Well, it’s halftime. Iowa 14, Iowa State 3. Not a very good quarter of football by the Cyclones. A lot of mistakes being made which led to turnovers. One of the turnovers resulted in the Hawkeyes’ second touchdown. A touchdown that may have been offensive interface, but after seeing it several more times, I can see why it was a no call – both players seem to push off. The second turnover in the quarter by the Cyclones was also unnecessary. They were moving the ball well towards the end of quarter, but the quarterback made a poor decision.
Turnovers and penalties are hurting the Cyclones. The quarterback needs to make better throwing decisions. They need to come out with a good drive and keep this game close.
Update 12 Sept 2009 2:41 PM:
Iowa 28, Iowa State 3. Not a pretty start to the second half. Turnovers by the Cyclones led to 14 more points by the Hawkeyes. It looks like it will be a long fourth quarter. I hope to see a more respectable result, but I will not count on it.
Update 12 Sept 2009 3:23 PM:
It is a final. Iowa 35, Iowa State 3. Another turnover leads to 7 more points for the Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes won this game and over came their early mistakes (2 turnovers). Six turnovers killed the Cyclones. The Cyclones quarterback need to make better decisions. Otherwise, it will be a long season. Until next season.
