The Ball State Cardinals look to continue their winning ways in week two of 2014 when they travel to Iowa City to take on the Big Ten's Iowa Hawkeyes. Ball State finished week one by polishing off the Colgate Raiders 30-10 in Muncie. It will be the second career start for Ozzie Mann, who took over for the graduated Keith Wenning over the offseason.
The 1-0 (0-0 MAC) Cardinals will look for big ground games from Jahwan Edwards and Horactio Banks who each racked up over 100 yards on ground last week in a comfortable victory. Pete Lembo's squad is looking for their fourth win in four years over a team from a power-5 conference. Twice under Lembo have the Cardinals beat Indiana, and once more have they been victorious over a P5 team, beating Virginia last year.
The 1-0 (0-0 B1G) Iowa Hawkeyes look to rebound after struggling for nearly the entirety of the game against FCS foe Northern Iowa in a 31-23 win. Last year Iowa went 8-5 (5-3 B1G) and lost to LSU in the Outback Bowl, 21-14.
The Cardinals and Hawkeyes have met twice in their respective histories, in 2005 and 2010, both being Iowa shutouts.
