The Iowa Hawkeyes have climbed to 12th in the latest Associated Press top 25. The Hawkeyes improved to 5-0 for the first time since 1995 with a 24-21 win over Arkansas State that was much closer than expected.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says there aren’t many style points given out, and they would have liked to have the game be more comfortable, but Arkansas State played a good game.
The Hawkeyes will host a Michigan team that dropped out of the top 25 following an overtime loss at Michigan State, the Wolverines first loss of the season. Ferentz says he doesn’t know if that is good or bad, but says they are having a good season and playing well. “If we do our part it should be a great game next week,” Ferentz says.
