All season long, we have ran a series of weekly podcasts called “Talkin’ Hawks,” previewing each upcoming game for the Iowa Hawkeyes throughout the 2011 season.
As the Hawkeyes begin their final preparations for the Insight Bowl on Dec. 30 against the 19th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, we give you the two-hour long bowl edition of “Talkin’ Hawks.” Former Iowa defensive back Chris Rowell (2005-09) joins me, as he has all season long, to discuss what has taken place over the last couple of weeks with the Hawkeye football program in addition to previewing Iowa’s showdown against Oklahoma.
In addition, we also provide our predictions for every Big Ten and BCS bowl game. For all the other picks I made, click here.
HawkeyeDrive.com will be in Arizona providing five days of Insight Bowl coverage, which begins Dec. 26 from Scottsdale, and concludes with complete coverage of the game between Iowa and Oklahoma at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., on Dec. 30. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Central, and the game will be televised nationally by ESPN.
