Showdown In Iowa

Showdown In Iowa

Number-17 Iowa State hosts Number-23 Iowa at Hilton Coliseum tonight.  The Cyclones are 7-and-0 for the first time since the 2003-2004 season following a come-from-behind win against UNI last Saturday.  The Hawkeyes are 10-and-1 and are coming off a 33-point victory over Fairleigh Dickinson on Monday.  This is just the second time in 66 meetings between the in-state rivals that both teams are ranked.
