    Saturday's game is a must win for the Hawks not Clones!

    Shoe seems to be on the other foot now as the game on Saturday will mean much more to Iowa and their fans than ISU. I doubt Hawks fans will admit this but it is the truth. We have gotten into the heads of their players, coaches, and fans with our recent success. The Hawk fans can no longer utter the words "we don't care about the ISU game because we are playing to win Big 10 titles" with a straight face. Their fans know that they are not going to be a factor at all in the Big 10 this year. No more Big 10 titles, no more January bowl games. They have more athletes arrested than football wins the last two seasons. Trust me when I say that Hawk fans want this game badly and it is their "superbowl" this season.

    Every game is a must win. Losing is unacceptable!!

    Agree 100%. The college football season is too short to no consider every single game a must win.

    I think this is big for both teams. I expect both to be vying for about 6 or 7 wins, making each one essential for being bowl eligible.

    I think the Hawks still have aspirations of post season. They are guardedly optimistic if you measure personal conversations and message boards.

    This game is a must-win for both schools every year IMO. A lot of Hawk fans are seeing this game a springboard though. A win against the Cyclones could be the first step in going undefeated into the MSU game.

    I think it's a huge game for us. UNLV is playing better than expected. It would suck to lose this game and lose at UNLV.

    I think it's a must win for Iowa simply because they are playing at home. Also with that, they have had a ton of controversy this summer and really have had no positive news so far. A win over us would be a spark for their fan base.

    I don't think I would call it a must win for either team. But I do think it will have a very large impact on the rest of both teams seasons. It may be the difference between us going/not going to a bowl game and Iowa may be in the same boat with a loss going into the Pitt game. 2-2 for them would not be very good for the rest of the year.

    Re: Saturday's game is a must win for the Hawks not Clones!

    winning two road games in a row would be a huge momentum booster heading into our matchup with Kansas in three weeks, I think we have more pressure on us to win in the non-conference with the strength of our conference, especially the b12 north being very tough now...and going 4-0 would be an enormous booster for early season recruiting as well as team confidence...sure hope the o-line d-lines get their acts together!

    also curious who Iowa is going to lose to between us and Pitt to be 2-2 rather than 2-1?

    Mid week game against the courts?

    Re: Saturday's game is a must win for the Hawks not Clones!

    I'm scared to death of the next 2 road games. The UNLV game has had me worried for the last 6 months. Don't assume we will be 3-1 if we lose to the Hawks.

    We need to find a way to AT LEAST split the next two games and winning both would be insane going into the KU game! Losing both and the realism of another 3-4 win season is upon us.

    Get it done ISU!

    I think the winner takes a huge, more than just one more win in the season step towards being a bowl team.

    But I will agree, Iowa always has the most pressure on them in this game. The fans think they should win every time, so does the national media
