How's High 5: Iowa - South Dakota

Iowa City, Iowa – It’s wise not to overreact to the season opener, win or loss. It’s a long way to go, and the first contest doesn’t always predict where the campaign will go.

In 2009, the Iowa Football needed to block a late field try in Week 1 to break through Northern Iowa. Two years ago, the Hawkeyes started 0-2 in a coronavirus-shortened season and won six in a row.

That probably won’t alleviate the hand numbness brought on by Saturday’s 7-3 win over South Dakota State at the 2022 kickoff here at Kinnick Stadium. You shouldn’t. This team still has a long way to go, especially on offense.
