Video interview with UI Coordinators

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker and offensive coordinator Greg Davis took a few minutes after Thursday’s practice to speak with

“The kids have to come out ready to play,” Parker said. “We did a lot of great things in the second halves of both ball games, we have to continue it, and start fast.”

“We’re getting closer,” Davis said. “It’s all about consistency; we had a good week of practice.”

Last week in a 9-6 setback, the Hawkeyes held Iowa State to no points and 110 yards in the second half. During the final 30 minutes, Iowa’s offense gained 173 of its 304 total yards.

The Hawkeyes (1-1 overall) and Panthers (1-1) meet Saturday inside Kinnick Stadium with a 2:42 p.m. (CT) kickoff. The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

Iowa leads the all-time series 14-1, including an exciting and unusual 17-16 win in 2009. To preserve the victory, the Hawkeyes blocked field goals on back-to-back downs — the first by Broderick Binns, the second by Jeremiha Hunter.
