• Cornerback Jordan Lomax was expected to go through at least part of practice on Tuesday as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. Coach Kirk Ferentz said it will likely be Thursday before a decision is made as to whether Lomax will play against Iowa State.

True freshman Desmond King is expected to make his second start at right cornerback this week.

• Las Vegas odds makers have installed Iowa as a three-point favorite to win at Iowa State, the 13th consecutive year the Hawkeyes have been favored against the Cyclones. Ferentz said he was “surprised” by that.

Iowa has 6-6 in its last 12 games against Iowa State.

• Iowa’s offensive depth chart shows no changes this week, including at wide receiver where starter Don Shumpert is trying to work beyond a couple of drops in last week’s game against Missouri State.

Ferentz said competition between Shumpert and Tevaun Smith remains ongoing at the position and is evaluated weekly.

• The Hawkeyes and Cyclones will be playing at night for just the third time in the 61-year history of the series. Iowa State has won the two previous games which have kicked off at 5 p.m. or later, winning at home in 1999 and in Iowa City in 2002.
