IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa is expected to snap its longest losing streak in 13 years on Saturday when it hosts Missouri State.

The Hawkeyes certainly can't afford to let a shot at a win over an FCS school pass them by.

Iowa (0-1) showed signs of progress in last week's opener against Northern Illinois. But a late interception by new quarterback Jake Rudock paved the way for a 30-27 win for the Huskies.

The loss made it seven straight since last season for the Hawkeyes, who haven't been on such a skid since dropping 13 in a row in 1999-2000.

Missouri State (0-1) is 1-28 against FBS schools, and last week the Bears lost at home to Northwestern State.
