Hawks get ready for talented Western Michigan receivers

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Once upon a time, having a Mid-American Conference program on the schedule was considered an almost certain victory for the Hawkeyes.

But of course times have changed.  Iowa lost to the last two MAC programs they've faced -- Central Michigan and Northern Illinois..

And Western Michigan has won its only two meetings against the Hawks.

The Broncos stagger into Kinnick this weekend having lost all three of their games this season, including a 38-17 loss last Saturday at Northwestern.

But despite Iowa being a 17 point favorite, no one on the Hawkeye roster is going to take Western Michigan lightly.

The Hawkeye secondary, which has given up some big plays this season, is preparing to be challenged by the Broncos' talented receiving corps -- namely Corey Davis, who is on the Biletnikov watch list.
