Defensive

hawk talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

There is a reason that Michigan State is rated one of the best defenses in the country... they are really good!
The Spartans held the Hawkeyes to 23 yards on the ground, 13 first downs and Iowa had the ball for only 22:47 minutes. Also, the Hawks didn’t get a first down until about five minutes left in the first half.
Here we go again.
Last year at this time the Hawks were 4-2, 2-0 in the Big Ten and beat Michigan State, 19-16 in overtime.
This year Iowa is 4-2, 1-1 in the Big Ten and lost to the Spartans, 26-14.

State parks are open for business

DES MOINES– Calls are coming in to state park officers faster than they can be answered. Yes, Iowa’s state parks, including those like Honey Creek and Elk Rock that are on federal land, are open.
That’s the message being relayed during the federal government shutdown.
“It can be confusing about what is open and what isn’t, especially for parks on federal reservoirs,” said Jim Lawson, State Parks Bureau supervisor for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “But Iowa’s state parks are open for business as usual.”
