The Hawkeyes are preparing to face off against the defending national champion Ohio State Buckeyes this weekend at the Rose Bowl.
Head coach John W. Groce said he had no intention of recruiting his players for this game.
The Hawkeyes face the Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon.
“We’re all excited about playing Ohio State,” he said.
“We’ve got to play at a high level.
We’ve got some tough opponents coming up and we’ve got a couple guys that are good.”
But we’re all on the same page.
I’m looking forward to seeing how they’re going to play.
“The game will be broadcast nationally on ABC, Fox Sports 1 and FOX Sports Go.
It will be the second meeting between the teams this season.
