Iowa vs Iowa State Lax This Weekend

This is straight from the Hawkeyes' website:
Iowa Hosts Kansas & Iowa State This Weekend
February 22, 2011
After starting the season with two wins this past weekend, Iowa will host its first home games of the 2011 season this weekend.
Iowa starts things off with a game against conference foe Kansas on Friday in the Bubble at 7:30 PM.  The Jayhawks come to Iowa City with a 1-2 record so far this season, also beating Memphis to go along with losses against Vanderbilt and Clemson.
Kansas has won four straight games against the Hawkeyes, including a 12-9 victory in Lawrence last season that decided the GRLC Division I-AA winner.  Mitch McElman led the way for the Hawkeyes with four points (2G, 2A) in that game, while Kansas’ Francis Enright led all players with four goals and two assists.
Enright leads the Jayhawks with 14 points this year and is tied with Nick Troll for the team lead with six goals.
Iowa then plays in-state rival Iowa State on Saturday night in the Bubble at 7:30 PM.  The Cyclones have played one game so far this season, losing 16-6 to Missouri.  The Hawkeyes won the last meeting between these two teams, 12-11, during the 2009 season.  Alex De La Pena had three goals and three assists in that game, while Craig Millspaugh added two goals and two assists.
The Hawkeyes are undefeated coming into tonight's game with massive wins over Memphis and Arkansas.
The Cyclones come to Iowa City with a 16-6 loss to Missouri under their belt.
Game Times:
Iowa vs Kansas - Friday 7:30 pm
Iowa State vs Kansas - Saturday 5:30 pm
Iowa vs Iowa State - Saturday 7:30 pm
Admission is free for all three games.
