That’s ISU coach Steve Prohm talking about first year Michigan coach Juwan Howard. Seven-one center Jon Teske is a key for the Wolverines.
IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the Hawkeyes need to find a way to run the ball in Friday’s Black Friday game at Nebraska. The Hawkeyes managed only 79 yards on the ground in a 19-10 win over Illinois.
Ferentz says with the short week to get ready the Hawkeyes have adjusted practice.
The forecast calls for freezing rain in Lincoln on Friday and the Hawkeyes went to work throwing wet footballs in practice.

Kickoff in Manhattan is scheduled for 6 o’clock on Saturday.
CEDAR FALLS – University of Northern Iowa Director of Athletics David Harris has signed an extension to his contract with the university, committing to more than five additional years with the Panthers.

“I am very grateful to President Nook for providing me the opportunity to continue leading the UNI Athletics Department,” Harris said. “My family and I have truly made the Cedar Valley our home, and we love being part of the Panther Family. This extension represents a tremendous vote of confidence in the work being done by our staff each and every day. We look forward to continuing to build on the momentum that has been established by our coaches, staff and student-athletes and creating a bright future for Panther Athletics.”
