It’s game day in Iowa City once again! Despite an abysmal start to the season for the Hawkeye offense, Iowa looks to close out the non-conference schedule this evening with a win over the Nevada Wolfpack.
The Hawkeyes come in fresh off a disappointing 10-7 loss to Iowa State in the Cy-Hawk game. Meanwhile, the Wolfpack also come into the matchup fresh off their first loss of the season as they fell 55-41 to Incarnate Word in week two. Will the porous Wolfpack defense be just what the doctor ordered for Spencer Petras and the Hawkeye offense? Or will this be another defensive slugfest driving Iowa fans mad?
