Iowa football is always the main topic in Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.

What is next for Josey Jewell?

Linebacker Josey Jewell took home Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors on Sunday. He recorded 14 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks against Wyoming. His performance led Luke Easterling of DraftWire to speculate on where Jewell may go in the NFL draft.

Showing growth

The Hawkeyes faced North Dakota State while playing without two starting offensive linemen last season and lost to the Bison. They were again without two starters up front to open the game Saturday against the Cowboys, but this time they withstood the absences and won the game. Land of 10 takes a look at what Iowa learned from the North Dakota State loss and how it helped beat the Cowboys.

Bring on Cy-Hawk week

Iowa-Iowa State week is here. The in-state foes will renew their rivalry on Saturday. Mike Hlas of the Cedar Rapids Gazette is looking forward to the matchup and explains why there is a brighter mood around the contest this year.

A key Cy-Hawk matchup

Matthew Bain of the Iowa City Press-Citizen wants to see what the Iowa secondary does against Iowa State. The Hawkeyes put together a strong performance in the opener but the Cyclones’ wide receivers should be a better test than their Wyoming counterparts.

Ready for their pro debut

Six Iowa rookies made the 53-man roster for NFL teams following cutdown day. Here is a look at which Hawkeyes will play on Sundays.

Say hello

Iowa started a new tradition Saturday. Fans in the stadium turned and waved to those watching the game from the top floor of the Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital at the end of the first quarter.
