(Radio Iowa) – The Northern Iowa women’s basketball team looks to continue its winning ways this season. The Panthers return their top five scorers from last year’s team that finished 18-11. The Panthers are picked to finis third in the Missouri Valley preseason poll.

That’s UNI coach Tanya Warren who says the veterans will combine with an outstanding recruiting class.

Warren hopes to release a non-conference schedule next week and she is trying to put together a demanding one.

The Panthers continue to succeed with local talent. Thirteen of the 15 players on the roster are from Iowa.

UNI Women’s basketball opens the 2020-21 Missouri Valley Conference play on New Year’s Eve at Illinois State before traveling to Bradley on Jan. 2nd.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Goodson rushed for a career-high 142 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, and Iowa’s defense clamped down hard on Minnesota for a 35-7 victory. The Hawkeyes took possession of the Floyd of Rosedale trophy for the sixth season. Jack Koerner and Riley Moss each picked off Tanner Morgan for the Gophers quarterback’s first two-interception game in two years. Zach VanValkenburg had three of the team’s four sacks to highlight Iowa’s first shutout of Minnesota since 2009. The Hawkeyes improved to 2-2. The Gophers fell to 1-3.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mohamed Ibrahim and the rest of the Minnesota offense took advantage of the long offseason created by the pandemic with some extra screen time. Ibrahim has been seeing the field as clearly as ever this fall for the Gophers. The junior tailback leads the nation with an average of 190 rushing yards per contest. He has 10 touchdowns in just three games, as the Gophers prepare to host rival Iowa. The punishing ground attack is plenty familiar to the Hawkeyes and their followers. Iowa has had the Floyd of Rosedale trophy for the last five years. Both teams are 1-2.

UNDATED (AP) — Penn State and Nebraska both are looking for their first wins heading into their game on Saturday. The Nittany Lions came into the season ranked in the top 10 but are 0-3 after an embarrassing home loss to Maryland. The Cornhuskers are still looking for a turnaround under Scott Frost, having gone 9-17 in his two-plus seasons. Their loss at Northwestern last week dropped them to 0-2. Nebraska ranks seventh in all-time wins with 902 and Penn State is eighth with 898. The Huskers have won three of four meetings since joining the Big Ten.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas coach Bill Self was still trying to figure out the makeup of his team the first week of November, roughly about the time the Jayhawks would have had a couple exhibition games under their belt in anticipation of the season. Unlike last year, when he knew exactly what he had in Udoka Azubuike and Devon Dotson. But those guys are gone and the Jayhawks will lean on a few veterans, a couple of newcomers and enough unknowns that sixth-ranked Kansas will likely be one of the most intriguing teams in the early part of the season.

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State All-Big 12 quarterback Brock Purdy is one of 15 finalists for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given annually to the top upperclassman quarterback in the nation.

A native of Gilbert, Ariz., Purdy is the most prolific signal-caller in Iowa State history, owning or sharing 23 school records.

Purdy added two more records to his resume recently in career touchdowns responsible (69) and career touchdown passes (53).

Since Purdy took over quarterbacking duties in 2018, the Cyclones are 19-10 overall, 16-6 vs. Big 12 teams, while averaging 426.4 yards of total offense and 32.0 points per game.

Purdy has directed the Cyclones into the top-25 rankings for the third-straight year, as the Cyclones currently lead the Big 12 with a 5-1 league slate.

The Cyclone record-setter is completing 62.2 pct. of his passes (135-217) with 10 touchdowns on the season. He’s also a proven threat on the run, ranking second on the team with 194 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Purdy led the Cyclones to a 37-30 victory over No. 18 Oklahoma earlier in the year, ISU’s first win over the Sooners in Ames since 1960 and the fifth fourth-quarter comeback of his career.
