Rob Report: ISU

HI Publisher Rob Howe checks in from Jack Trice Stadium with news, notes, an injury report, a travel list and more from Iowa's 27-21 win.

AMES, Iowa - The Rob Report is back for its 11th season of Iowa Hawkeyes football. Today we look at the 27-21 Week 3 win against Iowa State at Jack Trice Stadium.


Jordan Lomax remained out of the Hawkeye lineup for a second week in a row after injuring his hamstring in Game 1. True freshman Desmond King started once again in his place at cornerback.

Running back Michael Malloy did not make the trip to Ames. He's missed the first three games for an undisclosed medical issue, according to Coach Kirk Ferentz.

Reese Fleming (leg) still has not seen the field this year. He and Lomax warmed up before the game but never got into it.

Offensive linemen Connor Boffeli and Brandon Scherff missed some snaps on Saturday with leg injuries but both returned to the game.
