Michigan vs. Iowa prediction: This one won’t be easy for Wolverines

LAS VEGAS — Iowa north texas football a wild party, there’s usually a hangover the next day. Jim Harbaugh is in his seventh year as Michigan head coach, and he waited a long time to celebrate a victory over Ohio State. So, after the Wolverines bashed the Buckeyes last week, will there be an emotional hangover?

A title game never should be a flat spot, especially when a College Football Playoff spot is on the line, but it’s fair to question whether Michigan will play at a similarly high level when it faces Iowa for the Big Ten championship Saturday in Indianapolis.

The Hawkeyes, who ascended as high as a No. 2 ranking in mid-October, grinded their way to 10 wins by running the ball, playing rock-solid defense and forcing mistakes. Iowa ranks third in the nation in turnover margin (+16) and takeaways (28).

Michigan’s offensive and defensive lines physically overpowered Ohio State, but Iowa is not a team that gets bullied up front. The Hawkeyes should be able to contain Wolverines running back Hassan Haskins, who busted loose for 169 yards and five touchdowns a week ago.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh

It’s not easy to bet against Michigan, which is 10-2 against the spread, but Iowa is a disrespected dog that finds ways to get in low-scoring, ugly games. Harbaugh will get the win, yet not without a sweat.

The pick: Iowa +11

Alabama (+6.5) over Georgia

The underdog has the better coach, Nick Saban, and the better quarterback, Bryce Young. The Bulldogs lead the nation in scoring defense by allowing 6.9 points per game, but Alabama’s offense presents a major challenge due to Young and a group of speed receivers capable of spreading the field and stretching the defense.

It’s not going to be stunning if Georgia rolls over the Crimson Tide for the SEC title. Still, it’s tough to turn down Saban, who has not been a dog since 2015, getting more than a field goal.

Wake Forest (+3) over Pittsburgh

Panthers quarterback Kenny Pickett will start in the ACC title game despite missing practice with the flu early this week. Pickett has 40 touchdown passes and has put up Heisman Trophy-type numbers, but the Pitt defense is unlikely to stop quarterback Sam Hartman and the Demon Deacons’ high-scoring offense. The coaching edge goes to Wake’s Dave Iowa north texas football State (+6) over San Diego State: The Aztecs, similar to Iowa, use an opportunistic defense to overcome their poor quarterback play. But the San Diego State defense was lit up by talented Mountain West passers such as Fresno State’s Jake Haener and Nevada’s Carson Strong. The Aggies are 6-0 on the road and led by veteran quarterback Logan Bonner, who has 32 touchdown passes.

Last week: 3-1; LSU (W), Penn State (L), North Texas (W), Notre Dame (W)
Season: 26-20-2

12:47 p.m. Don't mind me just checking my watch .

According to the ESPN broadcast, the opening line for Alabama vs. Cincinnati is the Crimson Tide by 13.5 points. And the opening line for Michigan vs. Georgia is the Bulldogs by 7.5 points. You'd better believe lots of folks will be betting on Jim Harbaugh's bunch with that line.

12:12 p.m. Chatting with Luke Fickell

Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell said he thinks his guys are excited for the opportunity to try to represent the Group of Five and dethrone Alabama.

"We know it's going to be an incredible challenge for us," he said. "Our guys have done nothing but step up to challenges."

Fickell also addressed how he and his team have been able to remain focused on the task at hand despite Fickell's name being tied to various head coaching vacancies in recent weeks.

"This year I think was a little bit different," Fickell said, acknowledging this year's noise may have been louder than in recent years. "If it wasn't for those (seniors and team leaders) and their ability to control the locker room, I think it would have been a lot more difficult."

12:02 p.m. Updates from Nick Saban

The biggest update from Alabama head coach Nick Saban is that star receiver John Metchie III, who went down with a non-contact injury in the SEC title game, likely has a "pretty significant knee injury" and will be out for a while, obviously including the CFP semifinal against Cincinnati.

Regarding Bearcats, Saban said Cincinnati "deserves to be in" and that his program respects Luke Fickell's program and is taking it seriously.

"We have to have proper respect," Saban said.

11:57 a.m. Kirby Smart thinks the SEC title game loss can help

In his interview with ESPN, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said "the greatest learning experiences come after losses" and went on to say he thinks his players are poised to learn and improve a great deal before the CFP semifinal against Michigan.

"Our guys are like sponges right now," Smart said.

11:49 a.m. Consider Jim Harbaugh a Georgia fan

In case you didn't know, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh's brother-in-law is Georgia men's basketball head coach Tom Crean.

"In our household, we find ourselves rooting for Georgia basketball," Harbaugh said on Sunday's ESPN broadcast, "and that always goes over to Georgia football."

Harbaugh didn't give a full scouting report of Georgia, but he was quick to praise the Bulldogs and say the game will be a tough battle when asked about his upcoming CFP semifinal opponent.

"They're great. They're a great team," Michigan's head coach said.

11:44 a.m. Let's talk about matchups

Selfishly, I'm most excited about No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Cincinnati. As a San Diego State alum, I'm a Group of Five guy. (I'm also heartbroken after the Aztecs' abysmal Mountain West title game performance but I digress.) 

Who better for the G5 darling Bearcats to prove their worth against than Nick Saban and the power of all powerhouses in Alabama?

Then you've got a mouth-watering battle for conference supremacy between Michigan, the Big Ten's best, and Georgia, who was the SEC's best during the regular season. Big Ten country will swear Michigan is better, and SEC country would laugh at the notion the Bulldogs aren't the superior team.

Michigan also no doubt thought it should be No. 1. This is an opportunity for the Wolverines to emb agar ingredients to prove that against a team Alabama just blew out.

11:36 a.m. Gary Barta said Alabama was clear No. 1 and Cincinnati was clear No. 4

Iowa athletics director Gary Barta, the head of the CFP committee, said on ESPN that Alabama beating Georgia in such dominant fashion, added to its wins over Ole Miss and Arkansas, gave the Crimson Tide the edge for No. 1. "The complete victory over Georgia," Barta said, gave Alabama the top spot.

Barta said that the committee does not factor in potential semifinal matchups when deciding the final order of the top four. So, if you believe that, the committee did not try to prevent an Alabama-Georgia rematch in the semifinal.

Cincinnati was the clear No. 4 team, Barta said. Beating Notre Dame at Notre Dame was a big help. It was a "strong consensus," Barta said, that Cincinnati was No. 4.

11:29 a.m. It's Cincinnati, Georgia, Michigan and Alabama. Duh.

Ohio State is at No. 6 and Notre Dame is at No. 5. So that means Baylor didn't jump any higher than No. 7 after beating Oklahoma State to win the Big 12 title as the No. 9 team. Interesting. I thought they might give the Bears some love, especially seeing how Oregon, which beat Ohio State earlier this year, has turned into a train wreck.

Cincinnati is No. 4. For the first time in CFP history, a Group of Five team will play in the semifinals. Love to see it.

Georgia comes in at No. 3. No surprise there after the Bearcats were slotted fourth.

Alabama got No. 1 and Michigan got No. 2. I would rather see the Wolverines at No. 1 but that's me. I'm happy the committee at least kept us from watching another Georgia-Alabama matchup in the semifinals.

It'll be Alabama vs. Cincinnati Dec. 31 in the Cotton Bowl Classic and Michigan vs. Georgia Dec. 31 in the Orange Bowl. Fun stuff, friends.

11:17 a.m. Final prediction

OK, I think they're unveiling the top 25 after the break. So, consider this my final prediction. Hold me to this.

1. Michigan

2. Alabama

3. Cincinnati

4. Georgia

Call me crazy, but I think the committee is going to reward Michigan for its schedule and the brutal shellacking it gave Iowa.

Also: Iowa State vs. Clemson in Cheez-It Bowl, and Iowa vs. Kentucky (Stoops connection!) in the Citrus Bowl. Let's see.

11:07 a.m. How long will it take?

Over/under on when ESPN will actually get to announcing the top 25?

I'll put it at 11:20 a.m. So, before or after?

There's only one question with the top four

We pretty much know with 99.9% certainty that Michigan, Cincinnati, Alabama and Georgia will be the top four teams . unless the CFP committee wants to watch the world burn and decides to throw Big 12 champ Baylor in there somewhere and lets the high-octane chaos ensue.

But, again, 99.9% certainty.

The only uncertainty is the order of those top four.

Who gets No. 1? That comes down to Michigan and Alabama. The Wolverines have more strong wins, including two consecutive blowouts against Ohio State and Iowa to end iowa north texas football season. Alabama might have the best win of all with its blowout over Georgia in the SEC title game, although the Crimson Tide struggled a bit down the stretch of the regular season.

No matter who gets No. 1, the CFP committee will likely make it so we don't see a Alabama-Georgia rematch in the semifinals. So, does that mean: 1. Alabama, 2. Michigan, 3. Georgia, 4. Cincinnati? Or 1. Michigan, 2. Alabama, 3. Cincinnati, 4. Georgia? Again, that's really the only question with the top four.

Where are Iowa and Iowa State most likely to wind up?

This is the way USA TODAY Sports sees things shaking out today:

We've got Iowa pegged for Citrus Bowl against Arkansas. That feels pretty certain, as there's little doubt in anyone's mind that the Rose Bowl will take Ohio State. As for the Hawkeyes' opponent, that'll come down to Arkansas, Kentucky or Texas A&M, and the Citrus Bowl CEO recently said you "can't lose" with any of those three.

Iowa State's bowl destiny is also pretty clear. With Baylor in the Sugar Bowl and Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl, we've got the Cyclones slated for the Cheez-It Bowl against Clemson in a fun head coaching clash between Matt Campbell and Dabo Swinney. Oklahoma will get the Alamo Bowl, the Big 12's top non-New Year's Six game, and Iowa State holds the tiebreaker over Kansas State, which will more than likely send the Wildcats to the Texas Bowl or Liberty Bowl and give Iowa State the Cheez-It.

Any question marks entering today?

Among the bigger bowl games, one intriguing question is: Who the heck gets the Citrus Bowl and Outback Bowl? From the Big Ten perspective, one part of that answer is easy: Iowa gets the Citrus. But the Outback? That could be Wisconsin or Minnesota.

As for the SEC, Arkansas, Kentucky and Texas A&M are vying for those two spots, with the odd team out likely going to the Mayo Bowl or Gator Bowl.

There's also a question in the New Year's Six bowls: Who goes to the Peach Bowl and who goes to the Fiesta Bowl? Pitt is definitely going to the Peach and Oklahoma State is definitely going to the Iowa north texas football. Then it comes down to Notre Dame and Michigan State for their opponents. We've got Michigan State eating corn chips and Notre Dame eating peaches, but we'll see.

It’s officially conference championship weekend and we’ve got a whole big slate of great games to bet on starting on Friday night with Conference USA and the PAC-12 Championship games. It’s hard to believe we're already to this portion of the season, but it should set us up for a fun finish. Let’s take a look at the best bets for this weekend’s action!

Western Kentucky (-3.5) vs UTSA

Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Early in the season, I wrote up some conference championship future bets, and one of my favorites then was Western Kentucky to win Conference USA (+1200). Early in the season UTSA beat Western Kentucky, so tioga state bank newfield would be a good hedge spot, but instead, I am double dipping and betting the Hilltoppers again to cover the spread and cash that early-season future.

If you look back to that first meeting between these two teams you’ll see that Western Kentucky really should have won that game. They dominated offensively as the Hilltoppers had 100 more yards than UTSA offensively and had the ball late to win the game. By a lot of different metrics, you’d think WKU won the game handily. They didn’t, but now they have a chance to redeem themselves. I like them to do so. Additionally, WKU is playing their best football.

They started 1-4 on but are winners of seven in a row coming into this week. UTSA, on the other hand, is 11-1 but they are coming off a loss to North Texas and the defense looked the worst it’s looked all year long. I like Zappe and Company to bring home the cash for us here.

Georgia (-6.5) @ Alabama

Speaking of double-dipping, my one national championship future was the Georgia Bulldogs at +500. That ticket is looking pretty good right now, but I have seen a lot of people thinking this might be the game where Georgia falters. Some folks think because Georgia is in the playoff no matter the result that they might be overlooking this SEC Title Game. Bologna.

Georgia has been the best team in football by a wide margin this Fall, and I don’t think that changes here. I understand it’s the Crimson Tide and that their brand goes a long way in people’s minds, but this is not the same Alabama team that we are used to seeing.

This Alabama team comes in 11-1 but they very easily could be more like 9-3. They shoulda lost last week to Auburn, they got a dog fight from Arkansas, and LSU had the ball with a chance to win late in their meeting. The Tide just doesn’t have the same presence they normally do, and I think that sets up for Georgia to come out and win a statement game here. I’ll gladly lay under iowa north texas football touchdown with the much better, proven team.

Iowa vs. Michigan Under 43.5

Photo by Keith Gillett/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Last week Michigan answered the call and knocked off arch-rival Ohio State. Now the Wolverines are just one game away from a college football playoff berth. Who stands in their way? The Iowa Hawkeyes (puke).

For me, I look at this game and see two offenses that like to keep the ball on the ground. This Michigan team looks more like the traditional Harbaugh teams of old, and they love to pound the rock and play defense. I think that will once again be the case here. They’re strong upfront, and they can win football games just leaning on you that way. On the other side, Iowa is Iowa. The offense is inept and frankly, I am disgusted I have to watch it at all. Michigan should be able to keep this Hawkeye offense contained like pretty much every other team has.

Another thing that I think will factor into the under is the lack of turnovers that Michigan has had. They have a recipe to win in running it, but they’ve also done a good job hanging onto the football. If you don’t give Iowa a short field, they can’t score. If Michigan keeps that same methodology working then they should be fine keeping this score in check. I leaned laying the points here, but I think some nerves could be in the works early so I prefer the under in the racetrack of Indy.

Quick Hitters

Oregon (+3) vs. Utah: Clear revenge spot here, makes sense to lean with the dog.

APP State (-2.5) vs. Louisiana: App State got rolled by Louisiana early in the year, but they’ve bounced back from then. Another clear revenge spot, plus Billy Napier is gone. I like App State to cover here.

Wake Forest (+3) vs. Pitt: These two teams seem incredibly even, so getting three points is something I have to take in this spot.

Mark Stoops to lead Kentucky football against his alma mater Iowa in Citrus Bowl

Kentucky football now knows which sunny Florida bowl destination they are heading for and for coach Mark Stoops it will be even more special preparing to face his alma mater the Iowa Hawkeyes on New Year’s Day in the Citrus Bowl.

That was made possible thanks to Alabama embarrassing Georgia on Saturday for the Southeastern Conference Championship ensuring both schools would be in the College Football Playoffs.

Number 1 seed Alabama will face No. 4 Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl while No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 Georgia will square off in the Orange Bowl. That meant that Ole Miss moved into the Sugar Bowl matching up with Baylor.

Kentucky (9-3) was the next highest SEC team moving into the most prestigious of the other games and the VRBO Citrus Bowl. The other option was the Outback Bowl that will now pit Arkansas and Penn State.

Kentucky football and Iowa will meet for the first time in an old-school game

The No. 22 ranked Wildcats and the No. 15 ranked Hawkeyes have never met on the gridiron before so it’s fitting that it will be in the 75th-anniversary edition of the bowl that has always been played in the same location.

Stoops, like his brothers Bob and Mike, played for the Hawkeyes with Mark playing under the great Hayden Fry from 1986-1988. However, a serious leg injury in 1988 ended his playing days. Since he couldn’t play, he instead served as a graduate assistant from 1989-1991.

But while he was on the field as a defensive back he had 69 tackles and picked off three passes.

If and when current Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz retires Big Blue Nation and Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart should fully expect Iowa to come calling for Mark as a replacement.

However, all is calm for now as Stoops and Barnhart agreed to a contract extension on Saturday.

We will dive into all that in the future.

For now just a quick glance at the matchup.

Kentucky can top off a stellar and memorable season if they can notch their tenth win of the season which would also be their fourth win in a row. For the Wildcats, it will be their sixth straight bowl trip which has never happened at UK, and they are seeking their fourth straight bowl win which too would be a first.

It seems we talk about a lot of firsts with Stoops and his troops.

After starting the season with six straight wins including victories over Florida and LSU, the Cats dropped three straight to Georgia, Mississippi State, and then Tennessee. Both Mississippi State and Tennessee could have and should have been won by Kentucky. They finished the season with a 52-21 rout of Louisville.

That would have been remarkable and most likely replaced Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl.

Iowa won the Big10 West division and faced off with Michigan for the conference title. Like Georgia, they too were embarrassed by the Wolverines 42-3.

The Hawkeyes too opened the year with six straight wins before losing headscratchers to Purdue and Wisconsin where they scored just a single touchdown in each. Like Kentucky, they regrouped to win the next four but they were battles with Northwestern, Minnesota, Illinois, and Nebraska.

The Hawkeyes have won three straight bowl games including the Holiday, Outback, and Pinstripe Bowl. There was no game played last season. Prior to that though they lost five straight bowl games. Overall they are 17-15-1 playing in post-season bowls.

Ferenze has been at the helm of the Iowa program for 23 seasons building a 178-109 record, including a 9-8 record in bowl games. He is the all-time winningest coach at Iowa.

Stoops, the second longest-tenured coach in the SEC, is on the cusp of becoming the winningest coach of all time at UK. His 58 wins are just two short dpss los angeles near me Paul “Bear” Bryant’s record, and this win would make it even more special when the 2022 season starts next September.

These are two stubborn and disciplined coaches who both like to do it their way. This is one game we have all been waiting to see and should be a lot of fun to prepare for.

According to the Kentucky Athletics website tickets for the Vrbo Citrus Bowl are available via Ticketmaster or by visiting bigtime.games/2022vcbtix. Groups of 10 or more may call the Florida Citrus Sports offices at 407.423.2476.

North Texas to honor Hayden Fry with throwbacks vs. SMU

North Texas considers SMU a rival, but the feeling is not mutual.

Though the two schools sit only 35 miles apart and both have sponsored football for more than a century -- UNT actually started two years before SMU, in 1913 -- they've played just 39 times. Of those 39 meetings, North Texas has won just six.

The schools have never been in the same conference, and they operate in largely different worlds. One is urban, the other suburban. One is large and public, the other small and private. Whereas North Texas draws most of its students from the DFW Metroplex, SMU is just as likely to draw a student from out of state than down the street.

In fact, it's that on-again, off-again nature that gives this rivalry its name. "I'd like to play because I think we could beat them, and my players feel the same way," North Texas head coach Matt Simon said in 1994. "If they'd like to play on a Safeway parking lot, just give us a date and time." The game has been known, unofficially, as the Safeway Bowl ever since.

So, other than real estate adjacent to I-35 E, what do these football programs have in common?

One thing: Hayden Fry.

Best remembered nationally for his legendary coaching tree and his 20-year run at Iowa, the future College Football Hall of Fame coach was an SMU Mustang and a North Texas State Eagle before he was a Hawkeye.

Fry's first head coaching job came in Dallas, iowa north texas football he led SMU to a Southwest Conference championship and integrated the conference as the Mustangs' head coach from 1962-72. SMU fired Fry despite a 7-4 record in '72, and North Texas State -- coming off a 1-10 season -- scooped him up immediately.

He led UNT to a share of the Missouri Valley championship in his first season in Denton, then produced the best team in the program's modern history in 1977 -- a 10-1 record, a No. 16 Coaches' poll ranking, and a 24-13 win over SMU at Texas Stadium.

Fry left for Iowa after the 1978 season, but he's still remembered fondly at both of his first two schools, especially in Denton.

And on eve of the Mean Green and Mustangs' first meeting since Fry's death last December, UNT is trotting out some Fry-era throwbacks, complete with apple green and the iconic Flying Worm logo.

Saturday will mark Year 7 of a 12-year home-and-home, bouncing back and forth from Denton to Dallas from 2014 through 2025.

Perhaps the schools can use this occasion to make their shared memory of Hayden Fry permanent. Instead of allowing this rivalry to carry a tongue-in-cheek name of a supermarket that doesn't even operate in Texas, what if we turned the 2020 Mean Green-Mustangs game into the first Hayden Fry Bowl?

Smith ran for 97 yards, including a 55-yard TD run, in the Bears’ 24-14 loss to OSU in the first meeting Oct. 2 in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Wright gets stops in Tulsa win

Justin Wright, a 2016 Cooper grad, had seven tackles, including one solo, in Tulsa’s 34-31 victory over SMU in an American Athletic Conference game in Dallas.

Wright, a redshirt-junior linebacker, finished the regular season as the Golden Hurricanes’ leading tackler (77, 37 solo).

Leistikow's 5 thoughts: Iowa football's timely offense, dominant Jack Campbell help Hawkeyes survive CSU


IOWA CITY — A popular and accurate thought among Iowa fans after the first few games of the season was that, one day, the offense would have to pick up the defense and special teams to win a game.

While it would be a stretch to say the offense took over Saturday against Colorado State, it did enough to help rally the Hawkeyes from a surprising halftime deficit.

Spencer Petras threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Sam LaPorta to break a third-quarter tie and threw for a season-high 224 yards as sixth-ranked Iowa withstood a terrific effort from the Mountain West Conference’s Rams to win, 24-14, before 65,456 fans at Kinnick Stadium.

"There were some up-and-down moments . but especially in the third quarter," Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said, "we saw some growth and good things."

This was not the cruise-control win that oddsmakers had projected for the 23-point favorite Hawkeyes, who improved to 4-0. They were punched in the mouth by a ford f 150 stx team that a week ago held well-regarded Toledo to 6 points. If you wondered which Colorado State team would show up, it was that one — not the one that lost to FCS South Dakota State in the opener.

And if you’re going to come to a brawl, you want to be on the side of Jack Campbell.

The terrific Iowa middle linebacker was seemingly everywhere Saturday to help turn back Colorado State (1-3). He recorded 18 tackles, the most by a Hawkeye since Anthony Hitchens had 19 against Iowa State in 2012. And when Iowa needed a big play, there Campbell was again, just as he was in Ames (with a fumble-recovery touchdown) and last week (with a forced fumble as Kent State was about to score).

Campbell fell on a fumble forced by Yahya Black that was gift-wrapped at Colorado State’s 6-yard line with Iowa trailing, 14-7.

One play later, Tyrone Tracy Jr. trotted to the end zone on a well-designed reverse call — a "Statue of Liberty" looking play — to even the score, 14-14.

"I just try to get around the ball first and foremost, and usually good things happen," Campbell said.

Petras' go-ahead 27-yard strike to LaPorta was well-designed, too. A fake tunnel screen that burned Iowa earlier left the tight end alone in the Colorado State secondary for Petras' second touchdown pass of the day.

"We practiced that all week," Petras said. "We ran a couple screens last week and thought we could take a shot on it."

LaPorta's thought as the ball was in the air?

"Don't drop it," he joked. " . When you're that wide open, you kind of second-guess yourself."

Petras later connected with Nico Ragaini for a clutch 34-yard completion to set up Caleb Shudak's 45-yard field goal for a 24-14 lead with 12:32 left in the game.

The defense held up from there. It limited Colorado State to 32 third-quarter yards and 58 in the fourth. And when the final horn sounded, the second half ended with Iowa having recorded its 26th straight game holding its opponent to 24 or fewer points.

"That’s a great team. They gave us our best shot," Iowa defensive end Zach VanValkenburg said. "We can’t come out of here with our heads down."

Iowa’s tight-knit linebacker crew continues to be a strength of this team.

Not to be outdone, Seth Benson had 11 tackles — giving Iowa’s inside-linebacker tandem a total of 29 Saturday. Campbell and Benson both spoke afterward about how their tight friendship off the field helps them on the field.

Benson said he and Campbell regularly participate in Bible studies together.

"That’s just something we value in our life," Benson said. "If he’s down, I’m always going to pick him up. If I’m down, he’s always going to pick me up. I always kind of know his mannerisms. … Seeing someone go about his business the way he does, it just pushes you to be greater."

Campbell and Benson were rotating at middle linebacker last year. Now with last year's weak-side linebacker Nick Niemann gone to the Los Angeles Chargers, they’re together nearly all the time in the middle of Iowa’s defense.

"Being a Christian, it’s pretty cool to have someone right next to you who you’ve talked about hard things with, someone you know you can trust," Campbell said.

For the season, Campbell’s 43 tackles lead the team. Benson’s 31 are second. And fellow linebacker Jestin Jacobs continues to deliver an impact; he is third on the team with 24.

Iowa’s worst half of the season was the anti-Iowa half.

Leading 7-0 in the second quarter, things kind of seemed fine. So on third-and-8 from Iowa’s own 9, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz probably didn’t think he was making the worst decision in the world to hand it off to fullback Monte Pottebaum for 4 yards.

But the ensuing punt by Tory Taylor was shanked — the first I can remember from the Aussie in his iowa north texas football Iowa career — out of bounds for only 22 yards. The Hawkeyes have been accustomed to that style iowa north texas football out, with Taylor launching a 60-yarder and then let the defense doing its work.

But this time, Colorado State had the field tilted and converted three key third downs to even the score at 7-7. The first, a 15-yard scramble from quarterback Todd Centeio on third-and-11 from the 36, may have benefitted from a penalty that wasn’t called (Noah Shannon looked to be held at the point where Centeio’s run got going).

Then, in response, Iowa’s offense looked to be doing its usual thing — closing the second quarter with points — after Petras connected with Keagan Johnson for 49 yards. But a poor decision by Petras on a tunnel screen on first-and-10 from CSU’s 14 ended his Ferentz-era record streak of 163 pass attempts without an interception. Instead of punching in a half-ending score and starting the third quarter with the ball and the lead, the Hawkeyes were in trouble.

Defensive back Robert Floyd picked off the pass intended for Tracy and returned it 62 yards to set up another Rams touchdown.

Think back to Iowa’s win at Iowa State. It was buoyed by big punts and a big-play defense. This time, Iowa was facing a big-time punter in All-American Ryan Stonehouse and the victim of a big-play defense.

As for Iowa’s defense, it was good on first and second down in the first half but not on third down. The Rams converted nine of 13 third-down opportunities in the first 30 minutes; coming into the game, they had converted just 18 of 51 (35%) and Iowa was allowing just 12 of 43 (28%) for the season.

Again, a totally non-Iowa half.

"They have a really good tight end (in Trey McBride) and a really good football team," Benson said. "We have to tighten down on third downs and get off the field. . They gave us some looks that we needed to adjust to after halftime."

It was a day of firsts (but not lasts) for Keagan Johnson.

The true freshman from Bellevue, Nebraska, got his first career start when he lined up as one of two wide receivers on the field Saturday. He’s been a revelation since stepping on campus in January, certainly a reward for the growth and understanding of the playbook he’s shown in a short time.

Johnson would become the Hawkeyes’ best option on offense in the first half. When he beat his man up the right sideline to haul in a 43-yard touchdown pass from Petras, it was a signal that Johnson can do special things at Iowa.

"When I came out and saw press (coverage), me and Spencer, we know. We have that connection," Johnson said. "I can win those deep balls. I was just hoping I could get off the line cleanly. And credit to Spencer, the ball couldn’t have been thrown any better.”

Yeah, that was just his first career catch. But it was a beauty. And it was tough; Johnson said he lost the ball in the sun as it was coming. He secured the ball at the 5-yard line but iowa north texas football sure to protect it while being tackled as he tumbled into the end zone.

"I lost the ball for about three seconds. Luckily it popped back into my vision," Johnson said.

For an encore, Johnson brought down a 49-yard deep shot from Petras toward the end of the second quarter. That didn’t lead to points. But Iowa does head to Big Ten play knowing it has a potential deep passing threat in its pocket. Johnson finished with those two catches for 92 yards, or 33.1% of Iowa's 278 yards.

The last time Iowa had a true freshman deep threat? He also wore No. 6: Ihmir Smith-Marsette in 2017.

Owners of the nation’s longest nonconference winning streak? The Iowa Hawkeyes.

Oops, Minnesota. P.J. Fleck’s Golden Gophers responded poorly from their 30-0 thumping last week at Colorado, falling in a stunner at home to 31-point underdog Bowling Green, 14-10. Bowling Green had lost 11 straight FBS games until Saturday, serving a stark reminder — especially in Minneapolis — that teams have to show up ready to play each and every Saturday.

As a result, Minnesota’s 21-game nonconference winning streak ended Saturday. And now, after beating Colorado State, the Hawkeyes have the nation’s best streak in nonconference games at 15.

Of those 15, four have come against the Big 12 (all Iowa State), three Mid-American (Northern Illinois, Miami of Ohio, Kent State), two Mountain West (Wyoming, Colorado State), two Conference USA (Middle Tennessee, North Texas), one FCS (Northern Iowa), one ACC (Boston College in the 2017 Pinstripe Bowl), one SEC (Mississippi State in the 2019 Outback) and one Pac-12 (USC in the 2019 Holiday Bowl).

The Hawkeyes’ last nonconference loss was Jan. 1, 2017, against Florida in the Outback Bowl. Their next nonconference game will likely come in a bowl game this season. In 2022, Iowa’s three non-Big Ten games are at home against South Dakota State, Iowa State and Nevada.

Iowa north texas football -

Iowa State vs. Texas prediction:

Matt Campbell has built himself into one of college football’s hottest coaches by turning Iowa State from Big XII also-ran into a top 25 program. He can notch his sixth win over a ranked program in three years by toppling No. 19 Texas on its home field.

The Longhorns have vacillated through an up-and-down season that’s seen highs like a win over Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown and lows like a Week 1 defeat to Maryland (for the second year in a row). Texas will have to prove it’s stabilized after a two-game losing streak dropped the team to the tail end of the rankings. Last week’s victory over Texas Tech helped, but knocking off a surprising Iowa State team would make the case Tom Herman’s team belongs in the top 15.

The Cyclones are one of the nation’s hottest teams thanks to a five-game winning streak, but they haven’t beaten a ranked opponent since shocking West Virginia on October 13. Beating the Longhorns is the last major hurdle between ISU and the program’s best regular season record since 1944. If Campbell can leave Austin with a win, he could even make the case for a spot on the New Year’s Day docket.

The S&P+ ratings aren’t especially fond of either team. Iowa State clocks in at No. 34 while Texas is ranked 41st (17 slots behind North Texas!). But while the numbers may favor the road team, I believe the only proper response to this week’s University of Texas game is:

Ok. Cool
Hook em!

Longhorns by 30.

  • Time: 8 p.m. ET
  • Location: Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, TX
  • TV: Longhorn Network
  • Streaming: WatchESPN (kinda)
  • Odds: Texas is favored by three points.

“Purdy is — the guy is undefeated. He’s 5-0,” Herman said of what he’s most impressed with about Purdy. “He’s got a ton of moxie, nothing phases that kid. It doesn’t matter the opponent, the atmosphere, the stadium, he’s got that “it” factor, and he’s got really, really good legs.”

“He can make plays with his feet when things break down, and not just as a runner but he can extend plays and throw the ball down the field,”

What’s Brock Purdy got in store for the Longhorns?

The Iowa State freshman has been a huge part of the team’s revival, starting each game of the Cyclones’ recent five-game winning streak. He’s recorded a 13:2 TD:INT ratio over that span, which includes wins over Oklahoma State and West Virginia. But he’s also a true freshman who’s never experienced a hostile Darrell K. Royal Stadium before, and he’ll be facing the nation’s 10th-ranked red zone defense.

If anyone on the back end of the ISU schedule can get to Purdy, it’s Texas. But can the Longhorns succeed where five other Big 12 teams have failed?

12:23 p.m. The lines are out

According to the ESPN broadcast, the opening line for Alabama vs. Cincinnati is the Crimson Tide by 13.5 points. And the opening line for Michigan vs. Georgia is the Bulldogs by 7.5 points. You'd better believe lots of folks will be betting on Jim Harbaugh's bunch with that line.

12:12 p.m. Chatting with Luke Fickell

Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell said he thinks his guys are excited for the opportunity to try to represent the Group of Five and dethrone Alabama.

"We know it's going to be an incredible challenge for us," he said. "Our guys have done nothing but step up to challenges."

Fickell also addressed how he and his team have been able to remain focused on the task at hand despite Fickell's name being tied to various head coaching vacancies in recent weeks.

"This year I think was a little bit different," Fickell said, acknowledging this year's noise may have been louder than in recent years. "If it wasn't for those (seniors and team leaders) and their ability to control the locker room, I think it would have been a lot more difficult."

12:02 p.m. Updates from Nick Saban

The biggest update from Alabama head coach Nick Saban is that star receiver John Metchie III, who went down with a non-contact injury in the SEC title game, likely has a "pretty significant knee injury" and will be out for a while, obviously including the CFP semifinal against Cincinnati.

Regarding Bearcats, Saban said Cincinnati "deserves to be in" and that his program respects Luke Fickell's program and is taking it seriously.

"We have to have proper respect," Saban said.

11:57 a.m. Kirby Smart thinks the SEC title game loss can help

In his interview with ESPN, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said "the greatest learning experiences come after losses" and went on to say he thinks his players are poised to learn and improve a great deal before the CFP semifinal against Michigan.

"Our guys are like sponges right now," Smart said.

11:49 a.m. Consider Jim Harbaugh a Georgia fan

In case you didn't know, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh's brother-in-law is Georgia men's basketball head coach Tom Crean.

"In our household, we find ourselves rooting for Georgia basketball," Harbaugh said on Sunday's ESPN broadcast, "and that always goes over to Georgia football."

Harbaugh didn't give a full scouting report of Georgia, but he was quick to praise the Bulldogs and say the game will be a tough battle when asked about his upcoming CFP semifinal opponent.

"They're great. They're a great team," Michigan's head coach said.

11:44 a.m. Let's talk about matchups

Selfishly, I'm most excited about No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Cincinnati. As a San Diego State alum, I'm a Group of Five guy. (I'm also heartbroken after the Aztecs' abysmal Mountain West title game performance but I digress.) 

Who better for the G5 darling Bearcats to prove their worth against than Nick Saban and the power of all powerhouses in Alabama?

Then you've got a mouth-watering battle for conference supremacy between Michigan, the Big Ten's best, and Georgia, who was the SEC's best during the regular season. Big Ten country will swear Michigan is better, and SEC country would laugh at the notion the Bulldogs aren't the superior team.

Michigan also no doubt thought it should be No. 1. This is an opportunity for the Wolverines to try to prove that against a team Alabama just blew out.

11:36 a.m. Gary Barta said Alabama was clear No. 1 and Cincinnati was clear No. 4

Iowa athletics director Gary Barta, the head of the CFP committee, said on ESPN that Alabama beating Georgia in such dominant fashion, added to its wins over Ole Miss and Arkansas, gave the Crimson Tide the edge for No. 1. "The complete victory over Georgia," Barta said, gave Alabama the top spot.

Barta said that the committee does not factor in potential semifinal matchups when deciding the final order of the top four. So, if you believe that, the committee did not try to prevent an Alabama-Georgia rematch in the semifinal.

Cincinnati was the clear No. 4 team, Barta said. Beating Notre Dame at Notre Dame was a big help. It was a "strong consensus," Barta said, that Cincinnati was No. 4.

11:29 a.m. It's Cincinnati, Georgia, Michigan and Alabama. Duh.

Ohio State is at No. 6 and Notre Dame is at No. 5. So that means Baylor didn't jump any higher than No. 7 after beating Oklahoma State to win the Big 12 title as the No. 9 team. Interesting. I thought they might give the Bears some love, especially seeing how Oregon, which beat Ohio State earlier this year, has turned into a train wreck.

Cincinnati is No. 4. For the first time in CFP history, a Group of Five team will play in the semifinals. Love to see it.

Georgia comes in at No. 3. No surprise there after the Bearcats were slotted fourth.

Alabama got No. 1 and Michigan got No. 2. I would rather see the Wolverines at No. 1 but that's me. I'm happy the committee at least kept us from watching another Georgia-Alabama matchup in the semifinals.

It'll be Alabama vs. Cincinnati Dec. 31 in the Cotton Bowl Classic and Michigan vs. Georgia Dec. 31 in the Orange Bowl. Fun stuff, friends.

11:17 a.m. Final prediction

OK, I think they're unveiling the top 25 after the break. So, consider this my final prediction. Hold me to this.

1. Michigan

2. Alabama

3. Cincinnati

4. Georgia

Call me crazy, but I think the committee is going to reward Michigan for its schedule and the brutal shellacking it gave Iowa.

Also: Iowa State vs. Clemson in Cheez-It Bowl, and Iowa vs. Kentucky (Stoops connection!) in the Citrus Bowl. Let's see.

11:07 a.m. How long will it take?

Over/under on when ESPN will actually get to announcing the top 25?

I'll put it at 11:20 a.m. So, before or after?

There's only one question with the top four

We pretty much know with 99.9% certainty that Michigan, Cincinnati, Alabama and Georgia will be the top four teams ... unless the CFP committee wants to watch the world burn and decides to throw Big 12 champ Baylor in there somewhere and lets the high-octane chaos ensue.

But, again, 99.9% certainty.

The only uncertainty is the order of those top four.

Who gets No. 1? That comes down to Michigan and Alabama. The Wolverines have more strong wins, including two consecutive blowouts against Ohio State and Iowa to end their season. Alabama might have the best win of all with its blowout over Georgia in the SEC title game, although the Crimson Tide struggled a bit down the stretch of the regular season.

No matter who gets No. 1, the CFP committee will likely make it so we don't see a Alabama-Georgia rematch in the semifinals. So, does that mean: 1. Alabama, 2. Michigan, 3. Georgia, 4. Cincinnati? Or 1. Michigan, 2. Alabama, 3. Cincinnati, 4. Georgia? Again, that's really the only question with the top four.

Where are Iowa and Iowa State most likely to wind up?

This is the way USA TODAY Sports sees things shaking out today:

We've got Iowa pegged for Citrus Bowl against Arkansas. That feels pretty certain, as there's little doubt in anyone's mind that the Rose Bowl will take Ohio State. As for the Hawkeyes' opponent, that'll come down to Arkansas, Kentucky or Texas A&M, and the Citrus Bowl CEO recently said you "can't lose" with any of those three.

Iowa State's bowl destiny is also pretty clear. With Baylor in the Sugar Bowl and Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl, we've got the Cyclones slated for the Cheez-It Bowl against Clemson in a fun head coaching clash between Matt Campbell and Dabo Swinney. Oklahoma will get the Alamo Bowl, the Big 12's top non-New Year's Six game, and Iowa State holds the tiebreaker over Kansas State, which will more than likely send the Wildcats to the Texas Bowl or Liberty Bowl and give Iowa State the Cheez-It.

Any question marks entering today?

Among the bigger bowl games, one intriguing question is: Who the heck gets the Citrus Bowl and Outback Bowl? From the Big Ten perspective, one part of that answer is easy: Iowa gets the Citrus. But the Outback? That could be Wisconsin or Minnesota.

As for the SEC, Arkansas, Kentucky and Texas A&M are vying for those two spots, with the odd team out likely going to the Mayo Bowl or Gator Bowl.

There's also a question in the New Year's Six bowls: Who goes to the Peach Bowl and who goes to the Fiesta Bowl? Pitt is definitely going to the Peach and Oklahoma State is definitely going to the Fiesta. Then it comes down to Notre Dame and Michigan State for their opponents. We've got Michigan State eating corn chips and Notre Dame eating peaches, but we'll see.

Leistikow's 5 thoughts: Iowa football's timely offense, dominant Jack Campbell help Hawkeyes survive CSU


IOWA CITY — A popular and accurate thought among Iowa fans after the first few games of the season was that, one day, the offense would have to pick up the defense and special teams to win a game.

While it would be a stretch to say the offense took over Saturday against Colorado State, it did enough to help rally the Hawkeyes from a surprising halftime deficit.

Spencer Petras threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Sam LaPorta to break a third-quarter tie and threw for a season-high 224 yards as sixth-ranked Iowa withstood a terrific effort from the Mountain West Conference’s Rams to win, 24-14, before 65,456 fans at Kinnick Stadium.

"There were some up-and-down moments ... but especially in the third quarter," Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said, "we saw some growth and good things."

This was not the cruise-control win that oddsmakers had projected for the 23-point favorite Hawkeyes, who improved to 4-0. They were punched in the mouth by a physical team that a week ago held well-regarded Toledo to 6 points. If you wondered which Colorado State team would show up, it was that one — not the one that lost to FCS South Dakota State in the opener.

And if you’re going to come to a brawl, you want to be on the side of Jack Campbell.

The terrific Iowa middle linebacker was seemingly everywhere Saturday to help turn back Colorado State (1-3). He recorded 18 tackles, the most by a Hawkeye since Anthony Hitchens had 19 against Iowa State in 2012. And when Iowa needed a big play, there Campbell was again, just as he was in Ames (with a fumble-recovery touchdown) and last week (with a forced fumble as Kent State was about to score).

Campbell fell on a fumble forced by Yahya Black that was gift-wrapped at Colorado State’s 6-yard line with Iowa trailing, 14-7.

One play later, Tyrone Tracy Jr. trotted to the end zone on a well-designed reverse call — a "Statue of Liberty" looking play — to even the score, 14-14.

"I just try to get around the ball first and foremost, and usually good things happen," Campbell said.

Petras' go-ahead 27-yard strike to LaPorta was well-designed, too. A fake tunnel screen that burned Iowa earlier left the tight end alone in the Colorado State secondary for Petras' second touchdown pass of the day.

"We practiced that all week," Petras said. "We ran a couple screens last week and thought we could take a shot on it."

LaPorta's thought as the ball was in the air?

"Don't drop it," he joked. " ... When you're that wide open, you kind of second-guess yourself."

Petras later connected with Nico Ragaini for a clutch 34-yard completion to set up Caleb Shudak's 45-yard field goal for a 24-14 lead with 12:32 left in the game.

The defense held up from there. It limited Colorado State to 32 third-quarter yards and 58 in the fourth. And when the final horn sounded, the second half ended with Iowa having recorded its 26th straight game holding its opponent to 24 or fewer points.

"That’s a great team. They gave us our best shot," Iowa defensive end Zach VanValkenburg said. "We can’t come out of here with our heads down."

Iowa’s tight-knit linebacker crew continues to be a strength of this team.

Not to be outdone, Seth Benson had 11 tackles — giving Iowa’s inside-linebacker tandem a total of 29 Saturday. Campbell and Benson both spoke afterward about how their tight friendship off the field helps them on the field.

Benson said he and Campbell regularly participate in Bible studies together.

"That’s just something we value in our life," Benson said. "If he’s down, I’m always going to pick him up. If I’m down, he’s always going to pick me up. I always kind of know his mannerisms. … Seeing someone go about his business the way he does, it just pushes you to be greater."

Campbell and Benson were rotating at middle linebacker last year. Now with last year's weak-side linebacker Nick Niemann gone to the Los Angeles Chargers, they’re together nearly all the time in the middle of Iowa’s defense.

"Being a Christian, it’s pretty cool to have someone right next to you who you’ve talked about hard things with, someone you know you can trust," Campbell said.

For the season, Campbell’s 43 tackles lead the team. Benson’s 31 are second. And fellow linebacker Jestin Jacobs continues to deliver an impact; he is third on the team with 24.

Iowa’s worst half of the season was the anti-Iowa half.

Leading 7-0 in the second quarter, things kind of seemed fine. So on third-and-8 from Iowa’s own 9, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz probably didn’t think he was making the worst decision in the world to hand it off to fullback Monte Pottebaum for 4 yards.

But the ensuing punt by Tory Taylor was shanked — the first I can remember from the Aussie in his two-year Iowa career — out of bounds for only 22 yards. The Hawkeyes have been accustomed to that style working out, with Taylor launching a 60-yarder and then let the defense doing its work.

But this time, Colorado State had the field tilted and converted three key third downs to even the score at 7-7. The first, a 15-yard scramble from quarterback Todd Centeio on third-and-11 from the 36, may have benefitted from a penalty that wasn’t called (Noah Shannon looked to be held at the point where Centeio’s run got going).

Then, in response, Iowa’s offense looked to be doing its usual thing — closing the second quarter with points — after Petras connected with Keagan Johnson for 49 yards. But a poor decision by Petras on a tunnel screen on first-and-10 from CSU’s 14 ended his Ferentz-era record streak of 163 pass attempts without an interception. Instead of punching in a half-ending score and starting the third quarter with the ball and the lead, the Hawkeyes were in trouble.

Defensive back Robert Floyd picked off the pass intended for Tracy and returned it 62 yards to set up another Rams touchdown.

Think back to Iowa’s win at Iowa State. It was buoyed by big punts and a big-play defense. This time, Iowa was facing a big-time punter in All-American Ryan Stonehouse and the victim of a big-play defense.

As for Iowa’s defense, it was good on first and second down in the first half but not on third down. The Rams converted nine of 13 third-down opportunities in the first 30 minutes; coming into the game, they had converted just 18 of 51 (35%) and Iowa was allowing just 12 of 43 (28%) for the season.

Again, a totally non-Iowa half.

"They have a really good tight end (in Trey McBride) and a really good football team," Benson said. "We have to tighten down on third downs and get off the field. ... They gave us some looks that we needed to adjust to after halftime."

It was a day of firsts (but not lasts) for Keagan Johnson.

The true freshman from Bellevue, Nebraska, got his first career start when he lined up as one of two wide receivers on the field Saturday. He’s been a revelation since stepping on campus in January, certainly a reward for the growth and understanding of the playbook he’s shown in a short time.

Johnson would become the Hawkeyes’ best option on offense in the first half. When he beat his man up the right sideline to haul in a 43-yard touchdown pass from Petras, it was a signal that Johnson can do special things at Iowa.

"When I came out and saw press (coverage), me and Spencer, we know. We have that connection," Johnson said. "I can win those deep balls. I was just hoping I could get off the line cleanly. And credit to Spencer, the ball couldn’t have been thrown any better.”

Yeah, that was just his first career catch. But it was a beauty. And it was tough; Johnson said he lost the ball in the sun as it was coming. He secured the ball at the 5-yard line but made sure to protect it while being tackled as he tumbled into the end zone.

"I lost the ball for about three seconds. Luckily it popped back into my vision," Johnson said.

For an encore, Johnson brought down a 49-yard deep shot from Petras toward the end of the second quarter. That didn’t lead to points. But Iowa does head to Big Ten play knowing it has a potential deep passing threat in its pocket. Johnson finished with those two catches for 92 yards, or 33.1% of Iowa's 278 yards.

The last time Iowa had a true freshman deep threat? He also wore No. 6: Ihmir Smith-Marsette in 2017.

Owners of the nation’s longest nonconference winning streak? The Iowa Hawkeyes.

Oops, Minnesota. P.J. Fleck’s Golden Gophers responded poorly from their 30-0 thumping last week at Colorado, falling in a stunner at home to 31-point underdog Bowling Green, 14-10. Bowling Green had lost 11 straight FBS games until Saturday, serving a stark reminder — especially in Minneapolis — that teams have to show up ready to play each and every Saturday.

As a result, Minnesota’s 21-game nonconference winning streak ended Saturday. And now, after beating Colorado State, the Hawkeyes have the nation’s best streak in nonconference games at 15.

Of those 15, four have come against the Big 12 (all Iowa State), three Mid-American (Northern Illinois, Miami of Ohio, Kent State), two Mountain West (Wyoming, Colorado State), two Conference USA (Middle Tennessee, North Texas), one FCS (Northern Iowa), one ACC (Boston College in the 2017 Pinstripe Bowl), one SEC (Mississippi State in the 2019 Outback) and one Pac-12 (USC in the 2019 Holiday Bowl).

The Hawkeyes’ last nonconference loss was Jan. 1, 2017, against Florida in the Outback Bowl. Their next nonconference game will likely come in a bowl game this season. In 2022, Iowa’s three non-Big Ten games are at home against South Dakota State, Iowa State and Nevada.

North Texas to honor Hayden Fry with throwbacks vs. SMU

North Texas considers SMU a rival, but the feeling is not mutual.

Though the two schools sit only 35 miles apart and both have sponsored football for more than a century -- UNT actually started two years before SMU, in 1913 -- they've played just 39 times. Of those 39 meetings, North Texas has won just six.

The schools have never been in the same conference, and they operate in largely different worlds. One is urban, the other suburban. One is large and public, the other small and private. Whereas North Texas draws most of its students from the DFW Metroplex, SMU is just as likely to draw a student from out of state than down the street.

In fact, it's that on-again, off-again nature that gives this rivalry its name. "I'd like to play because I think we could beat them, and my players feel the same way," North Texas head coach Matt Simon said in 1994. "If they'd like to play on a Safeway parking lot, just give us a date and time." The game has been known, unofficially, as the Safeway Bowl ever since.

So, other than real estate adjacent to I-35 E, what do these football programs have in common?

One thing: Hayden Fry.

Best remembered nationally for his legendary coaching tree and his 20-year run at Iowa, the future College Football Hall of Fame coach was an SMU Mustang and a North Texas State Eagle before he was a Hawkeye.

Fry's first head coaching job came in Dallas, where he led SMU to a Southwest Conference championship and integrated the conference as the Mustangs' head coach from 1962-72. SMU fired Fry despite a 7-4 record in '72, and North Texas State -- coming off a 1-10 season -- scooped him up immediately.

He led UNT to a share of the Missouri Valley championship in his first season in Denton, then produced the best team in the program's modern history in 1977 -- a 10-1 record, a No. 16 Coaches' poll ranking, and a 24-13 win over SMU at Texas Stadium.

Fry left for Iowa after the 1978 season, but he's still remembered fondly at both of his first two schools, especially in Denton.

And on eve of the Mean Green and Mustangs' first meeting since Fry's death last December, UNT is trotting out some Fry-era throwbacks, complete with apple green and the iconic Flying Worm logo.

Saturday will mark Year 7 of a 12-year home-and-home, bouncing back and forth from Denton to Dallas from 2014 through 2025.

Perhaps the schools can use this occasion to make their shared memory of Hayden Fry permanent. Instead of allowing this rivalry to carry a tongue-in-cheek name of a supermarket that doesn't even operate in Texas, what if we turned the 2020 Mean Green-Mustangs game into the first Hayden Fry Bowl?

Abilene High grad Smith leads No. 9 Baylor past Texas Tech, into Big 12 title game


Abram Smith, a 2017 Abilene High grad, ran for a game-high 117 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries in Baylor’s 27-24 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday in Waco.

The senior running back also had two catches for 22 yards. His TD run was a 4-yarder that gave the Bears a 17-3 lead with 5:01 left in the first half. 

Smith is seventh in the nation in rushing yards (215-1,366, 12 TDs) and yards per game (113.8). He was named to the second-team All-Big 12 Conference team announced Thursday. He received votes for the league's Offensive Player of the Year award. 

No. 9 Baylor (10-2, 7-2) plays No. 7 Oklahoma State (11-1, 8-1) at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Big 12 title game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Smith ran for 97 yards, including a 55-yard TD run, in the Bears’ 24-14 loss to OSU in the first meeting Oct. 2 in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Wright gets stops in Tulsa win

Justin Wright, a 2016 Cooper grad, had seven tackles, including one solo, in Tulsa’s 34-31 victory over SMU in an American Athletic Conference game in Dallas.

Wright, a redshirt-junior linebacker, finished the regular season as the Golden Hurricanes’ leading tackler (77, 37 solo). He also had 5½ tackles for a loss of 20 yards, including 3½ sacks for a loss of 16 yards. He had one interception, which he returned 55 yards for a TD in Week 2 versus Oklahoma State, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.

Tulsa (6-6, 5-3) waits to see what bowl game it will play.

Novil helps North Texas upset UTSA

Dion Novil, a 2017 Wylie grad, had five tackles, including three solo, as North Texas stunned No. 15 and previously unbeaten Texas-San Antonio 45-23 in a Conference USA game in Denton.

The senior nose tackle also had a sack. He finished the regular season eight on the team in tackles (40, 21 solo). He had 6½ for a loss of 34 yards, including three sacks for 25 yards. Novil had an interception, force two fumbles and recovered two fumbles. He also blocked two kicks.

North Texas (6-6, 5-3), which has won five consecutive games, became bowl eligible with the win.

McMillon plays last game for Frogs

Coy McMillion, a 2017 Abilene High grad, started at center in TCU’s 48-14 loss to Iowa State in a Big 12 Conference game  in Fort Worth.

The 6-4, 304-pound senior played in 47 consecutive games to finish his career for the Horned Frogs, who finished the season at 5-7 overall and 3-6 in conference.
