College Football Preview: #23 Utah Utes

It may not sound like much, but Ames has plenty to offer the football fans of America. Conference games are always a little more important than other games and this is a Big 12 – South conference battle.

The Big Ten Network and Big Ten Conference announced Thursday that the Iowa-Northwestern football game in Iowa City at Kinnick Stadium will be shown in prime time.

“The offensive line is very good, they have great size up front, the defense plays hard and is very sound, scheme-wise and fundamentally. Bottom line, this will be a big challenge for our football team; it’s a road trip for us going into Big 12 country,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said in his weekly teleconference.

Jordan Gross donates $500,000 to the football program. Along with his wife Dana, the current Carolina Panther pro bowler announced the gift on July 27. His gift is added to those previously made by other current NFL pros Steve Smith (Gross’s teammate on the Panthers) and San Francisco 49er quarterback Alex Smith. They join basketball pros Andrew Bogut and Andre Miller in making significant contributions.

Blank reached base in all five plate appearances, drawing a season-high four walks to go along with a triple and an RBI. She has reached base in the last 24 contests. Massey helped herself at the plate, finishing 2-for-4 with a run, walk and RBI.

Now, we’ve arrived at week 8 and this week finds the Texas A&M Aggies facing off with the Iowa State basketball. Look for this game on Saturday in week 8. I love these conference games! The Iowa State basketball rushed for 143.2 yards per game in 2010. The iowa state basketball completed the 2010 season with a record of 5 – 7 in 2010. The Texas A&M Aggies will take this contest!

Royce White was a very highly touted recruit two years in the past, but failed to play a game for the Minnesota Golden Gophers after which he sat out last season following transferring to Iowa State. White is sturdy and can be an fantastic passer. He’ll be starting at power forward and may be the star of this team.

The Cyclones will go from competitive to challenging the tope teams in the league. With star talent like Brackins and Gilstrap it will be up to the guards to be more consistent. The backcourt doesn’t have to be flashy. They just need to be solid for this team to take the next step up in the standings.
