Iowa's opening game—an 18-17 win over Northern Illinois—didn't go as planned.

It was a tougher opponent than the Hawks have been used to on opening weekend, and many good things came out of the performance.

It will have to improve a great deal if it hopes to beat Iowa State this week, let alone have what would be termed a successful season.
