By  | 

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa's defense will face another big test on Saturday at Indiana.

The Hawkeyes will again rely on two freshman at cornberback: Riley Moss and Julius Brents. Last week versus Minnesota, Moss had two interceptions and Brents collected one.

Iowa will also be short-handed at linebacker. Jack Hockaday and Nick Niemann are out with injuries, and Amani Jones is suspended for the first half after being penalized for targeting last week versus Minnesota.
