How to watch, listen or stream: Iowa vs. Rutgers

The Hawkeyes travel to Rutgers to confront the Scarlet Knights. It’s the first road game for Iowa this season. This game features two solid defenses, two offenses looking to improve, and two legendary kickers.

“We showed some progress in certain areas. Happy about that. Obviously, it was good to get Nico and Keagan back and then Brody was able to get involved a little bit at receiver as well. So it gave us a few more guys to throw at. Overall, the team effort was good.Again you go 60 minutes split into seven hours, not easy to do.

“Defensively, y’all watched the game, those guys played a good game. They were aggressive and very tough to play against and also made passing yardage difficult. I thought especially in the first half. It was a little disjointed once he got back on the second half. But in the first half I thought we had a little bit of rhythm offensively. The running game wasn’t perfect, but we did some better things, so that was encouraging.”
