A Win is a win

Hawk Talk

I’m sure plenty of Hawkeye fans out there are somewhat disappointed with Iowa’s 31-23 victory over the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) last Saturday.
Why was it so close?
Why didn’t we blow them out?
The simple answer is the UNI Panthers are pretty good.
They beat Iowa State last year.
Two years ago, they opened with Wisconsin and lost, 26-21.
UNI returned most of its defense, including three pretty good defensive backs.
