IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State quarterback Steele Jantz played about as well as anyone ever has in the century-old rivalry between the Cyclones and Iowa last September. Jantz didn’t come close to replicating his four-touchdown performance in a 44-41, triple-overtime win over the Hawkeyes in 2011 — until last weekend. He thrived in his second chance as Iowa State’s starter, throwing for a career-high 281 yards and scoring three TDs as the Cyclones beat Tulsa 38-23 in its opener. The Hawkeyes (1-0) get another shot at stopping Jantz when they host Iowa State (1-0) in their home opener on Saturday.   You can hear the game on KJAN with the pre-game beginning at 12:30 and kick-off at 2:30.
