Iowa City, Iowa — Iowa corner Riley Moss says the Hawkeye defense remains focused despite a 2-0 start to the season.
Wins over Indiana and Iowa State have vaulted the Hawkeyes up to number five in the AP Poll heading into Saturday’s game against Kent State.
Moss says it is important to ignore criticism as well as praise.
Moss says the Hawkeyes are not focused on their ranking.
Senior defensive end Zach VanValkenburg says a lot of young players have key roles in the defensive line.
VanValkenburg is not surprised by the play of linebacker Jestin Jacobs. The sophomore forced a fumble that led to a touchdown in the win over Iowa State.
