announcer: from iowa's sports leader, this is kcci 8 sports. tony: the hawks are
prepping for the rose bowl. we will go live from california in a minute. but first, iowa basketball was thrown into the deep end of big ten play, taking on undefeated michigan state. the hawkeyes were more than up to the challenge. how about walk on nicholas m
drains eighth of the -- drains a three. the deep 3 off the glass. the hawkeyes are on a roll. the hugest swat. he had 11 points on the day. iowa pulls off the upset, 83-70. iowa takes down undefeated michigan state. we're counting down the minutes to the granddaddy of them all. iowa taking on stanford. sports director andy garman is in pasadena and joins us with more. andy: certainly an exciting start to the week for hawkeye fans, and now a chance to really write some history. iowa has not won a game in
kirk ferentz's team hopes to change that this week. stanford is a formidable challenge, but the hawkeyes to this point have really not focused a time on the cardinals. they know it is obviously a huge challenge, but they also know, so far, they are adhered to have a little bit of fun. >> i think everyone needs to do a good job and focused on what is in front of us. >> everyone has been running around, flying around. we are on the track of putting ourselves in the best position to play against stanford. andy: jordan canzeri, i asked about his ankle, and he said he is ready to go.
up to this point, they have been having a good time. scott: they have been having so much fun. cooper leading the charge at open mic night at a comedy club last night. how about a little sample? >> there is no way this man is 18. >> i would say the beef bwol -- the beef bowl was pretty good. >> this is a nice guy right here. >> get to hang out, experience the l.a. lights a little bit. >> terry mitchell has horse

hopefully get a good practice in today and just play well. we obviously want to win but we want to play the right way. >> going around, getting stops, creating turnovers, playing the iowa state way. really outplaying teams. that is the key for us going forward. on average, it takes three hundred americans working for a solid year, to make as much money as one top ceo. it's called the wage gap. and the republicans will make it worse by lowering taxes for those at the top and letting corporations write their own rules. hillary clinton will work to close the wage gap. equal pay for women to raise incomes for families, a higher minimum wage, lower taxes for the middle class. she gets the job done for us.
