Graphic Evidence of an Intense Rivalry

Bill Penisten of The Daily Iowan, the student newspaper at Iowa, captures what a rivalry is all about in his graphic titled "Grudge Match" for the Iowa State-Iowa game. In the process, Penisten gets in a few light-hearted jabs at the visiting Cyclones. You can view a larger version of the graphic by clicking here, or by clicking on the image itself. This is one of the under-rated rivalries in college football, and although the Hawkeyes have experienced more success in recent seasons, the Cyclones have won six of the last eight games in the series. Iowa State officials decided to drive home that fact with a billboard this summer that was put up outside of Iowa City. As for predictions for Saturday, one writer says this is Iowa's game to win. Thanks to the Midwest Correspondent and Bruce for the tips!
