IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — There isn’t much evidence to suggest that Iowa is all that good this season. The Hawkeyes are resilient, though. In the Big Ten in 2012, that might be enough. An Iowa team that has looked awful at times is tied for first place in the Legends Division heading into Saturday night’s home game with Penn State (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten). Iowa (4-2, 2-2) has proven to be a mentally tough bunch, a trait that’s allowed them to overcome more than a few shortcomings.
