More on Iowa RB Akrum Wadley’s big Cy-Hawk run, another C.J. Fiedorowicz concussion, and fear the hangover
Iowa football is always the main topic in Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Forty-six yards says everything
Iowa running back Akrum Wadley did more than score a 46-yard, game-tying touchdown against Iowa State in the fourth quarter on Saturday. Land of 10 explains how he showed that he is a different runner as a senior than as a junior on the play.
Akrum Wadley’s big play in pictures
The Rivals folks put together an interesting picture compilation of the big plays from the end of the Cy-Hawk game, including Wadley’s 46-yard touchdown.
Former Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz suffered a concussion in the season opener for the Houston Texans on Sunday. He also suffered a concussion in the preseason. There was no update on how long he will be out with the injury.
Next line up
The Hawkeyes fear the worst about right tackle Ike Boettger’s right leg injury. Odds are it leads to Iowa to shuffle its offensive line for the sixth straight game.
Mike Hlas of the Cedar Rapids Gazette is declaring this Hangover Week. The Iowa State rivalry game is the rearview mirror. The matchup with No. 5 Penn State is still two Saturdays away. North Texas is next up and is the only thing standing between the Hawkeyes and a likely matchup of two undefeated teams.
The Cy-Hawk game wasn’t the best for the Iowa defense. The Hawkeyes want to find a way to turn a negative into a positive, writes Chris Cuellar of the Des Moines Register. If they play better in space they will.
An important victory
The Hawkeyes didn’t just beat the Cyclones on Saturday. They picked up a victory with meaning. It’s one people will be talking about for years, writes David Schwartz of HawkeyeNation.com.
The Hawkeyes aren’t in the Associated Press Top 25 poll yet, but they are receiving votes.
