Things to watch during Week 2 of play in the Big Ten Conference:
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa and Iowa State head into Saturday's Cy-Hawk Game at Kinnick Stadium off season-opening wins, but the moods in Iowa City and Ames are decidedly different this week.
Hawkeyes fans watched their team sputter offensively against South Dakota State, and predictable calls for a new starting quarterback followed.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hunter Dekkers made his debut as Iowa State’s starting quarterback Saturday and threw for 293 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-10 rout of Southeast Missouri.
Dekkers, who completed a total of 25 passes in two seasons as the Cyclones’ backup, finished 25 of 31 against the Redhawks, helping Iowa State to its most lopsided season-opening win since 2001.
It's long been a foregone conclusion that Hunter Dekkers would be Iowa State's next starting quarterback.
His teammates praise him for his leadership skills and physical tools, and his coach says he's earned the trust of everyone in the program.
