IT WAS IOWA'S D1-A AND BTU RUGBY DEBUT. The Hawks faced Nebraska in the opener of league play. Iowa overcame injuries to three forwards. The Hawkeyes had a 22-12 halftime lead that was quickly erased by Nebraska but Iowa went on to win the match 29-22.
HAWKEYE WOMEN'S SOCCER GETS TWO WINS AT HOME. The #25 ranked Hawkeyes hosted Indiana and didn't disappoint the home crowd recording a 1-0 victory. Sunday, Iowa defeated Purdue 3-2. Iowa improves their Big Ten record to (2-1) and moves to (11-1) on the season.
IOWA FIELD HOCKEY WINS ON THE ROAD. The #13 ranked Iowa Field Hockey team went to Michigan State to face their #15 rated squad. It was a hard fought battle and Iowa won 1-0. They also earned a victory over Central Michigan. Iowa spent Sunday afternoon beating the Chippewas 4-1. Iowa moves to (7-2) on the season and (1-0) in conference play.
IOWA VOLLEYBALL WASN'T SO LUCKY AGAINST ONE OF THE NATION'S TOP TEAMS. Iowa went on the road to face #4 Penn State in a league match-up. Penn State won the first two sets before Iowa claimed the third. Penn State finished off Iowa 25-14 in the fourth set to earn the win.
HAWKEYE SOFTBALL BEATS IOWA STATE. The Hawks doubled-up on the Cyclones, 6-3, in the Big Four Classic. Drake proved to be too much for Iowa knocking them off 3-1 in Sunday's second game.
HAWKEYE MEN'S HOOPS GETS A VERBAL COMMIT. Probably not shocking news given last week's rumblings. Peter Jok, of West Des Moines Valley, finished up his weekend visit at Iowa by verbally committing to the Hawks. Jok will most likely be the only commit of the 2013 recruiting class.

FERENTZ. Let's go right to the post-game and see what Kirk Ferentz had to say. There's a transcript and also video. About the onside kick, "we looked very confused out there." (Hmm.) About game management, "we had some communication issues." (Oh.) And penalties, "undisciplined, sloppy." (Ah, I see!)
THE PLAYERS TALKED AFTER THE GAME TOO. Joe Gaglione talks about his retaliation and personal foul late in the game. James Morris, Micah Hyde, James Vandenberg, Mark Weisman, Austin Blythe and Mike Meyer are in that post too.
REMEMBER THE SEASON TAG LINE? ENTER THE BLACK? Mike Hlas thinks it's a "Black Hole." He also thinks Saturday's game had a resemblance to Iowa's loss last year at Minnesota. 200 yard rusher, check. Botched onside kick recovery, check. Loss, check.
