Iowa Hawkeyes will take the opportunity to work on all phases of the game, against someone other than another teammates. The Hawkeyes open the 2008 college football season hosting Maine today. Iowa's defense looks to be Iowa's strength, while the offense and special teams work to improve in '08, after a season of ups and downs, last year.
