GAME NOTES: The Cy-Hawk series resumes this weekend when the Iowa Hawkeyes visit Jack Trice Stadium to take on the intrastate rival Iowa State Cyclones.

Iowa holds a 39-21 edge in the all-time series, although the Cyclones won last year's meeting as the visiting team, 9-6.

Iowa State was idle this past weekend. The Cyclones began their 2013 campaign the previous week with a 28-20 home loss to Northern Iowa, which snapped their six-game non-conference regular-season winning streak. It also marked their first season-opening loss since 2007 against Kent State, as the Cyclones trotted out 11 first-time starters.

Iowa rebounded from its season-opening loss to Northern Illinois with a 28-14 win over Missouri State this past weekend. The Hawkeyes used a strong ground game and an improved defensive performance to notch their first win of the 2013 campaign. They'll now try and make it two in a row in their road debut.

Iowa racked up 489 yards of total offense against Missouri State, including 296 on the ground. Mark Weisman headlined that effort with a career-high 30 carries for 180 yards and two touchdowns. It marked the sixth career 100-yard rushing game for Weisman, who carried 20 times for 100 yards in Iowa's season opener. He has had the luxury of running behind an offensive line that has been opening up gaping holes while allowing only two sacks through two games. Sophomore Jake Rudock has been able to move the chains behind that protection, but he must improve his decision-making (three interceptions in two games, including one that was returned for a TD). Rudock made his collegiate debut in the season opener, the first Hawkeyes QB to do so in 19 years.

The Hawkeyes defense notched two takeaways against Missouri State and limited the Bears to only 197 yards, 67 of which came in the first half. Iowa held the Bears to 1-of-10 on third downs and as a result, won the time-of-possession battle by more than 16 minutes. Senior linebacker Anthony Hitchens turned in another solid performance with a team-high eight tackles (2.0 TFL) and a sack. Through two games, he paces the unit with 21 tackles. Fellow senior linebacker Christian Kirksey played a starring role in the opener, as he accumulated 14 tackles and scored on a 52-yard fumble recovery and return, marking the third TD of his career.

The Cyclones posted 410 total yards against Northern Iowa, marking only the third time in their last 11 games they managed to crack the 400-yard barrier. However, missed opportunities contributed to the end result, a disappointing home loss in their season opener. ISU missed two field goals in the first half and settled for a pair of field goals in the red zone in the third quarter. UNI came up with a defensive stand in the third quarter following an Iowa State fumble recovery, and that stand effectively sapped the Cyclones' momentum. The loss marred an otherwise promising season debut from QB Sam Richardson, who threw for 242 yards and two scores in addition to running for a team-high 74 yards. One of those touchdown passes went to senior Justin Coleman, who finished with 103 yards on four catches.

Iowa State had seven defensive players make their first collegiate starts against UNI, the most of any other school in the Big 12. That inexperience was evident in the final outcome, as the Cyclones dug themselves a 21-7 second- quarter hole and were never able to recover. Senior safety Deon Broomfield, one of the unit's few veteran leaders, forced a pair of fumbles and recovered them both. He was the first ISU player to force two fumbles in a game since David Sims in 2009 (vs. Colorado). Jared Brackens made his first career start at linebacker and came through with 10 tackles and a sack. Ultimately, the Panthers were able to move the ball up and down the field as they accumulated 23 first downs and 457 yards from scrimmage.

Iowa State, coming off an upset loss in its season opener, has had two weeks to prepare for this highly-anticipated rivalry matchup. If last year's game between these two teams is any indication, points may be hard to come by.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Iowa State 17, Iowa 13
