Banged-up Hawkeyes expect to be healthy for Rose Bowl

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) One of the remarkable aspects of Iowa's run this season is that the Hawkeyes kept winning even when key players kept going down.

Iowa (12-1) should head to the Rose Bowl about as healthy as it's been all season with a full complement of players - including senior running back Jordan Canzeri - for next Friday's game against Stanford (11-2).

Canzeri suffered an ankle injury in the first half of a 16-13 loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game on Dec 5. He said Tuesday that while he's not 100 percent yet, he's been practicing ''full go'' for the past few days.

Quarterback C.J. Beathard had limited scrambling ability much of the season due to hip and groin injuries, but he was able to rest up, too.
