Iowa is expected to snap its longest

Iowa is expected to snap its longest losing streak in 13 years on Saturday when it hosts Missouri State.

The Hawkeyes certainly can't afford to let a shot at a win over an FCS school pass them by.

Iowa (0-1) showed signs of progress in last week's opener against Northern Illinois.

But a late interception by new quarterback Jake Rudock paved the way for a 30-27 win for the Huskies.

The loss made it seven straight since last season for the Hawkeyes, who haven't been on such a skid since dropping 13 in a row in 1999-2000.

Missouri State (0-1) is 1-28 against FBS schools, and last week the Bears lost at home to Northwestern State.
