After Iowa football went from one extreme (55-24 win over Ohio State) to the other (gaining 66 yards in a 38-14 loss at Wisconsin) in a span of two weeks, The Gazette’s Marc Morehouse and Mike Hlas explain what happened on this edition of the On Iowa Podcast.

Plus, Saturday is senior day, so we examine some of the best stories from this class of Hawkeyes.
