Kirk Ferentz said on his radio show Wednesday night that they don’t want to put senior guard Seth Olsen out there too early and blow the rest of the season for two quarters today. So, that sprained ankle he suffered before the Wisconsin game will likely keep him out for a second game.

And, of course, you’ve probably heard by now that Illinois RB Daniel Dufrene is questionable today because of personal reasons. Illinois released that Friday afternoon. He may or may not play. I’m pretty sure Jason Ford, the true freshman, is poised to jump into that spot and take over.
Iowa linebacker Dezman Moses is slated to return from suspension today. We’ll see if he plays.
