The Hawk Report — Iowa VS Illinois
It's time for the Hawk Report, brought to you by Hurricane Grill & Wings!
We'll celebrate this victory for a very long time here in the Hawkeye state. But I'm sure the team knows it's time to get back to work.
Iowa travels to Champagne, Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini. Illinois has had a pretty bad year. They are 3-7 overall with a Big Ten record of 2-4. But it's college football, anything can happen...just ask Michigan.
The game will be televised by The Big Ten Network. Kickoff is set for 11:00 a.m. If you decide to drive to the game, the stadium is only 4 hours from Cedar Rapids. It's 270 miles, it's an easy drive and I'm guessing there will be plenty of tickets available.
I'm predicting a close first half, but the Hawks will take care of business after that. Iowa wins this game 33-17, and come home with their 7th victory of the season.
