The Iowa Hawkeyes close out the pre-conference portion of their schedule tomorrow afternoon against Arizona at home. Both teams are off to 2-0 starts and the Wildcats are averaging better than 300 yards on the ground.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the two runningbacks have emerged in the last two games and they really compliment each other. He says this will be a different style of offense for the Hawkeye defense to try and slow down. He says the defense is used to playing it’s own offense in practice, so it won’t be a lot different, but they do run a little more spread out offense.
Big Ten teams have struggled against their Pac-10 counterparts but Ferentz does not view this as a chance to help the conference. Ferentz says all that stuff comes and goes and he is just worried about beating Arizona, because that would help his team.
