Say what? Iowa didn't have a game on Tuesday. And never has.

Well, Louisiana-Lafayette did. It played Dan McCarney's North Texas team in Denton, on ESPN2. Not everyone was watching the debate or the ALCS Tuesday night.

Anyway, ULL kicker Brett Baer entered the game leading FBS in field goals per game, with 2.40. That was 12 field goals in five games.

Baer's Ragin' Cajuns lost to the Mean Green, 30-23. Baer kicked just one field goal, lowering his average to 2.17. He is now tied with Houston's Matt Hogan for second nationally behind ...

None other than Iowa's Mike Meyer, who has 14 field goals in six games for a 2.33 average.

Baer missed an PAT try Tuesday. That's something Meyer hasn't done in 12 tries. Meyer also has made his last 13 field goal tries, and is 14-of-15 this season.
