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.
