Iowa State Patrol Reminds Football Fans to Be Safe This Weekend

News, Sports

September 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

This weekend, the largest in-state rivalry between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones will take place at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. The Iowa State Patrol reminds all fans traveling to and from the game and parties across the state to be safe.

The Iowa State Patrol offers the following tips for a safe weekend of football fun:

Plan ahead, leave early for your destination.
Slow down and expect heavy traffic delays.
Be patient if you encounter heavy traffic.
Pay attention and avoid any unnecessary distractions.
Obey all directions given by law enforcement officers.
Don’t drink and drive.
Buckle up!
A much higher volume of traffic is expected on Saturday in and around the Iowa City area. Some fans will arrive several hours before kickoff, so traffic congestion can be expected many hours prior to and following the conclusion of the game. Motorists not attending the game are encouraged to find alternate routes.

By following these simple tips, the Iowa State Patrol hopes everyone remains safe while cheering on the Hawkeyes and Cyclones.

Mesoraco homers, leads Reds over Cardinals 9-5

Sports

September 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) – Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in three runs, and Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and doubled home a run, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-5 victory on Tuesday night that ended their six-game losing streak against the St. Louis Cardinals. The NL Central leaders lost for only the second time in 11 games and maintained their 4 1/2-game lead over Pittsburgh. St. Louis is 10-4 against the Reds and 40-25 overall in the division.

The Reds won for the third time in 11 games. They are 17-33 since the All-Star break, a slide that has dropped them out of contention. Leake was coming off his worst start of the season, giving up a season-high seven runs and three homers during a 9-7 loss in Baltimore last Thursday. Against the Cardinals, Leake allowed three runs and eight hits.

Iowa LT Scherff expected to miss Iowa State game

September 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says star left tackle Brandon Scherff could be available for Saturday’s game against Iowa State despite an undisclosed knee injury. But Scherff says he won’t play against the Cyclones after hurting his right knee in last week’s 17-13 win over Ball State. Scherff then showed up at Iowa’s facility on a pair of crutches and with a bandage on his knee.

Ferentz, who is often guarded when discussing injuries, repeatedly declared Scherff’s status as “day to day.” Scherff told local TV station KCRG in Cedar Rapids that he’s hoping to return for Iowa’s trip to Pittsburgh on Sept. 20.

Chiefs’ Charles goes MIA in opening loss to Titans

Sports

September 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles had seven carries for 19 yards and four catches for 15 yards in a season-opening loss to Tennessee, stunningly low numbers for the All-Pro running back. His final eight touches? They netted a whopping 11 yards from scrimmage.

Charles said after, “I want to see the ball more and coach knows that,” and coach Andy Reid said Monday that not getting his biggest star the ball was “negligence on my part.”

Especially after the Chiefs gave him a two-year, $18.1 million extension before the season. Reid said the Titans took away much of what the Chiefs were trying to do with Charles, but he also made it clear that No. 25 needs to get the ball more for the team to be successful.

AP source: Chiefs sign DT Kevin Vickerson

Sports

September 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A person with knowledge of the deal says the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson to a one-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team had not announced the move.  Vickerson will likely start right away. The Chiefs lost defensive tackle Mike DeVito to a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon in Sunday’s loss to Tennessee.

Vickerson has spent the last four years in Denver, making 41 starts and will be returning there for a game with the Chiefs on Sunday. The Chiefs are still looking for a linebacker after losing Derrick Johnson to his own ruptured Achilles tendon.
