Friday night in Cedar Rapids: Cedar Rapids Washington (10-1) hosts Bettendorf (11-0) in a Class 4A Quarter-Final Football match up. By the way, in my high school day, the Bulldogs usually had the Warriors number in the state football playoffs.
Saturday afternoon in Iowa City: the Iowa Hawkeyes (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten) will host my #2 Penn State Nittany Lions (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) in an important Big Ten Conference game at Kinnick Stadium. ABC/ESPN will televise at 2:30 pm.
Weather is certainly taking a turn to cold, after a great week or so of outstanding Autumn weather in Iowa and much of the Midwest.
