The Iowa Hawkeyes will be without one of their top receivers when they take on Texas Tech later this month in the Alamo Bowl. Junior wideout C.J. Jones was charged with drunken driving over the weekend in Iowa City and will not go with the team to the bowl game. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says he expects Jones to return to school and rejoin the team.Ferentz says the loss of Jones will make the receiving corps thin for the game. He says it hurts to lose any good player, and he says he’s talked to the team about their responsibility to teammates.The Iowa State Cyclones will leave this weekend for the December 27th Independence Bowl where they will play Alabama. After claiming the school’s first-ever bowl victory last year the Cyclones and coach Dan McCarney will be looking for two in a row.The Cyclones have been established as the underdog in this game and while McCarney says that is nothing new for his team it’s not something they dwell on.
