By J.P. Scott, 2 weeks 5 days ago
As they are in most years, expectations for the Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones in 2016 are very different.

After the best opening week ever in college football and some of the most anticipated position battles of the season, week 2 pumps the brakes a little when it comes to the product on the field.
