The Big Ten/ACC Challenge will provide a big one for the 14th ranked Iowa Hawkeye women on Wednesday night when they visit top ranked and defending national champion Notre Dame. Coach Lisa Bluder says it is one they are looking forward too.

 

At 4-1, Bluder says the Hawkeyes will need to be outstanding in all phases to have a chance.

 

Bluder says it is as big of a challenge as the Hawkeyes will face all season.

Utah State 71, UNI 52 (NCAAM)

The Northern Iowa Panthers will visit UC-Davis on Saturday in the second round of the FCS playoffs. The Aggies are 9-2 and claimed a share of the Big Sky Conference title under former Colorado and Boise State coach Dan Hawkins.

 

That’s UNI coach Mark Farley, who says the UC-Davis offense will be a big test for the Panther defense.

 

Farley says the Aggies are a typical Big Sky team in their style of play.

 

Farley says in-game adjustments will be critical.

 

UNI offensive tackle Spencer Brown says at this point of the season it is about getting rest and being fundamentally sound.
