Iowa's final seven home games are sold out, starting with Sunday's game against Minnesota.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Hawkeyes have had all week to bask in the glory of Sunday's win over Ohio State. It was Iowa's first win over a top five team in 12 years and broke an eight-game losing streak against the Buckeyes.
Iowa moved up to 14th in this week's Associated Press poll and will host Minnesota on Sunday. The Gophers are 14-4 after beating Ohio State on Thursday night.
The Hawkeyes are 14-3 overall and 3-1 in the Big Ten, tied for third place. Iowa's final seven home games are sold out and the Hawks appreciate the support.
"From the beginning the fans were really engaged. We needed more, we wanted more but they were really excited," said Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery. "Slowly they were coming back and wanted to come back and wanted to be here and be a participant in what was going on. When you have experienced teams that are used to playing in that environment regularly, there's a little greater degree of comfortablility for the home team, especially offensively."
Iowa split two games with Minnesota last season. Sunday's game starts at noon on the Big Ten Network.
