    PRE-SEASON -- With the announcement of the 2016 schedule and week 1 kickoff hours away, we'll take a quick glance at the roster coach Selvy will be rolling out this season.
    Jake Rudock returns to anchor the Iowa offense. The 6'3, 200 lb senior had a solid 2015, but wasn't relied on too often to win games with Mark Weisman lining up behind him. With Weisman (and last season's backup Damon Bullock) graduating, the Hawks will start senior Jordan Canzeri. Canzeri spent the last 3 seasons behind Weisman and Bullock, so although he's a senior, he only has one rush attempt in his career. He has the ability to be a serious threat though, but it will be interesting to see how Selvy balances his offense between Rudock and Canzeri. Rudock will have a pair of senior wide receivers to rely on (Tevaun Smith and Jacob Hillyer) plus a pair of blue chip TEs, but everyone knows Sevly's penchance for running the ball.

    The biggest concern for Iowa's offense will be along it's o-line. After the surprise departure of their starting center in the offseason, the Hawkeyes are left with just 4 upper classmen on the offensive line. If any one of the starters suffers an injury, Iowa will be struggling to keep the defense out of its backfield.

    Defensively, it's a different story, as Iowa returns a plethora of upper classmen (8 seniors, 7 juniors). The line is anchored by 4 stellar senior defensive ends and go 3 deep at the corner position. Don't be surprised to see Iowa line up in some different formations to take advantage of its talent, especially against some of the speed offenses that have infiltrated the Big 10.

    Following up a 2nd straight season where the Hawkeyes were 1 win away from the Big 10 title game, coach Selvy and Iowa will be hoping to finally take that final step. And realistically, the Hawks were one play away from beating eventual national champions Michigan. After struggling out of the gate, Iowa finished 2015 on a 7-1 run and will hope that continues long into 2016. Stay tuned for the schedule announcement.

    New Look Hawkeyes Impressive In Debut
    Iowa took the opening kick of the 2015 season and immediately things looked a little different. No longer was Mark Weisman carrying the rock behind a veteran offensive line. Instead, Jake Rudock and the Hawkeyes caught the Mean Green from North Texas a bit off guard with a hurry up offense. 90 seconds later and Iowa had a 7-0 lead after rookie RB Jordan Canzeri took a quick screen pass 30 yards to the house. North Texas still seemed a bit flumoxed and promptly threw an INT on their first possession. Iowa used the short field and a beautiful triple option to fullback Macon Plewa showed a little flash, and Iowa never looked back.

    Rudock ended the day early in the 3rd quarter, going 19\25 for 281 yards and 3 TDs. Canzeri ended up with 14 carries, 78 yards, and 1 TD. Backup RB Mike Malloy stole the show, albeit in mop up time, going for 71 yards and 3 TDs on just 9 carries.

    "When you see the 63-14 final, yea things went well today. But there's a lot to work on. Rudock was hit way too many times, our line has to get better. And giving up 145 rushing yards is unacceptable. Our defense is far too experienced to miss that many tackles."

    Iowa Falls to Iowa State, 20-13

    The Battle for the Cyhawk trophy has produced a couple of memorable games of late. Unfortunately for Iowa, this one did not go their way as the defending champs defended their home field and hung on for a 20-13 win.

    Iowa was able to build a 10-6 halftime lead, but the swing play of the game came on a 4th and goal from the 1 yard line. Instead of playing safe and taking 3 points and a 7 point lead, coach Selvy gambled. "We wanted to go up 2 scores. We knew if we got that, we could turn it over to our ground game. 2 scores would have been huge." Instead, the Cyclones got the big stop and all the momentum. ISU took the ball and promptly marched 99 yards for the go ahead TD.

    With all momentum now resting with ISU, QB Jake Rudock was picked off on the ensuing possession, and another ISU TD put this one out of reach. Iowa was given a brief glimmer of hope, as they were able to cut the lead to 1 score with a little over 3 minutes left, but the defense couldn't get a stop and the Cyclones drained the clock, sealing the win.

    Iowa Improves to 3-1, Coasts Past Indiana
    Jordan Canzeri rushed for 3 TDs and Jake Rudock threw for 282 yards and a score as #11 Iowa eased past Indiana. The normally run heavy offense of coach Selvy continues to struggle, but the emergence of Rudock has helped cover the offensive line issues. Iowa's bend-but-don't-break defense continues to dance a fine line, struggling to stop the run, yet hasn't allowed an opponent to score 21 points in a game this season.

    The Hawkeyes face a stiff test next week, as they travel to Columbus to take on #3 Ohio State.
