     IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Even bad Indiana teams usually find ways to give Iowa problems.  Indiana visits Kinnick Stadium on Saturday with a 1-6 record.  The Hoosiers haven’t beaten an FBS opponent yet, and last week they were blown out by Wisconsin 59-7.  Still, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz is wary of Indiana. The Hawkeyes (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) survived a year ago when Damarlo Belcher dropped a TD pass with 28 seconds left, and they needed a 28-point fourth quarter to turn back the Hoosiers in 2009.  The Hawkeyes bounced back from a tough loss at Penn State by beating Northwestern last week in Iowa City.
