The KWWL news station for eastern Iowa covered the Hawkeye 26-20 win in a different way than the Sioux City Journal.

The Iowa Hawkeyes won 26-20 against Purdue at home last Saturday and KWWL reports it with updates and clips of every quarter. The news station mentioned that the Wisconsin win over Illinois puts Iowa only one game back in the Big Ten west.

A reporter was reporting from the field after the game with the empty stands and it was followed by interviews and the Hawkeyes standings.

The Sioux City Journal focused on the game clinching touchdown from Makhi Sargent and his thoughts. The journalist, Steve Batterson, covered Sargent’s year and how early fumble in the year makes him want to move forward by working at practice and build on his success.

The article mentioned a starter, Landan Paulsen, from a local town and a quote from him. He is a familiar name for the area.

The article ended with quotes after the game from Sargent and the head coach, Kirk Ferentz who said, “We still have work to do.”

The coverage in both ways had different focuses, but gave the audiences what they needed.
