Missouri State at Iowa

Rate this Entry
I am in Iowa City today for Missouri State Coach Terry Allen's return to the state. If you remember Allen was the coach at Northern Iowa nearly two decades ago.

Both teams are coming in at 0-1 with home losses to start the season. Missouri State lost 23-17 to Northwestern State last week, while Iowa lost to Northern Illinois 30-27.

The weather today in eastern Iowa is scheduled to be hot today with a high in the upper 90s.

I thin it will be key for the Bears to get a fast start to stay in this game. They will need to win the turnover battle and get some breaks to pull off Missouri Valley's third upset over a BCS conference team. Remember, North Dakota State (over Kansas State) and Northern Iowa (over Iowa State) were the two other victories last week.

I think Iowa will be able to handle the Bears, however, as Allen has not rekindled the magic he had with UNI while in Springfield. A win today though would go a long way towards getting back to that way.

We shall see and I hope for a competative game.

    The Bears just couldn't handle the Hawkeyes on that drive. Now the offense must put up a drive here to stay in contention.

    Just when the Bears offense comes to life, Harris throws that pick. Look for Iowa to pound the ball now to try to run the clock out.

    The Bears stop Weisman for just a short gain of four on two carries but Martin-Manley catches on third down to move the chains.

    The Bears get another third down play here after two short runs.

    3rd & 7 at the IA 38. Pass is overthrown and Iow will be forced to punt.

    Burton fumbles the punt return but gets it back after a three yard loss. MSU will start that their own 16. We have 4:04 left for the Bears to try to make the come back.

    Good effort by the Bears today but just came up short.
