AP College Football poll has Iowa at #13

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:  The AP college football poll numbers are out and the Iowa Hawkeyes have moved from number 16 to number 13 after defeating Iowa State Saturday night.


C.J. Beathard threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns and 16th-ranked Iowa throttled Iowa State 42-3 on Saturday night, its biggest win over the rival Cyclones in 18 seasons under coach Kirk Ferentz.

LeShun Daniels rushed for 112 yards and a TD to help the Hawkeyes (2-0) beat Iowa State in consecutive seasons for the first time in six years.

Beathard put the game out of reach with the three TD passes in the first half -- including a brilliant 12-yard toss to a heavily defended Matt VandeBerg.

VandeBerg finished with 129 yards receiving, and Allen Lazard caught seven passes for 111 yards.

By jumping out to a big lead, the Hawkeyes negated Iowa State's efforts to get star back Mike Warren going after a rough opener. Warren, who led all freshmen nationally with 1,337 yards a year ago, had just 28 on seven carries.

Joel Lanning was 8 of 20 for 86 yards and an interception for Iowa State and was pulled late in the third quarter for Jacob Park, setting up a potential quarterback controversy just two games into the season.
