current front- runners dr. ben carson and donald trump were not there. but senators ted cruz and marco rubio attended. jeb bush, who's also behind in the polls, criticized trump for the way he's handled voter support in iowa. "you know poll numbers go up and they go down. iowa proves that in every caucus. when they go down, you don't insult iowa voters because they're the same discerning voters whether your polls are going up or down. you learn from iowa voters, so it's a joy to be here." " the candidates also took some time to talk about the controversy surrounding their latest debate on c-n-b-c. the next republican debate is on november 10th in milwaukee. before the republican forum in des moines, senator cruz had some time to experience iowa's outdoors. he went pheasant hunting in akron with congressman steve king and bob vander plaats. being off the campaign trail didn't stop cruz from chiming in
cruz again highlighted his party's disappointmen t with the c-n-b-c debate. " we shouldn't have republican primary debates moderated by liberal democrats. " "i've suggested how about a republican primary moderated by sean hannity and rush limbaugh and mark levin. now i guarantee you-you would get incredible ratings for that. i'd love to see that primary " cruz's comments follow the republican national committee's announcement that it's suspending its february debate with n-b-c news. campaign organizers for each g-o-p candidate are meeting today to discuss new debate standards. on the democratic side, candidate bernie sanders talked about the grassroots support of his campaign, versus the his opponent, hillary clinton. during a rally in new hampshire this weekend, sanders talked about the unprecedente d number of contributions
to his campaign. "one of my opponents touts the fact that she has a lot of establishment support -- governors and senators and mayors and that's true. a lot more than we have. but, on the other hand, we have more people who have made more individual campaign contributions at this point in the campaign than any other candidate in american history " sanders did not visit iowa this weekend. but he will be in des moines on november, to participate in the second democratic debate. bernie's wife, jane sanders, took some time to praise her husband's campaign efforts. in an interview saturday, she said she was surprised by the growing momentum behind his work. "people have been very specific about how happy they are that bernie is running, because he's speaking to their issues. its been incredible, i'm really proud of bernie. it's moved

football team. he made sure to hold the claret jug high and proud. 1st quarter, maryland's brandon ross finds a hole on the right side, but greg mabin forces a fumble, it's recovered by miles taylor. it would lead to this leshun daniels junior one yard touchdown run. leshun was happy to be back on the field after missing the last two games with an ankle injury. "it's a blessing. i was thankful to be out there because obviously i haven't really played a significant time since the iowa state game. to be back out there and contribute to a team victory is really huge for me." 2nd quarter, akrum wadley with the stretch play to the right. looks for some blocks. and he's in for the 11-yard touchdown run to give the hawkeyes a 14-0 lead. "outside zone play. makin was in, he kicked out the corner and i squeezed through the hole." with 2 minutes left in the first half, maryland pinned deep in their own territory. jaleel johnson with the tackle for a loss. the hawkeyes would get the ball back and with 13 seconds left. derrick
mitchell goes up the gut for the touchdown. three rushing touchdowns from 3 different running backs. iowa led 21-0 at halftime. "that was exciting. that was something we talked about going into the game. it was pretty exciting because we went out there and got it done today too." in the 4th quarter, maryland ended the shutout as perry hills hits taivon jacobs over the middle for a 7-yard touchdown to make it 21-7. the hawkeyes respond with this marshall koehn 49-yard field goal. plenty of leg. hawkeyes lead it 24-7. maryland marches down the field into the red zone. but hills is picked off by who else? desmond king, his 7th interception of the season. he turns on the jets and takes it back 88 yards for the pick six. that would seal the deal as iowa moves to 8-0 with the 31-15 win. "everytime you catch an interception, you gotta think touchdown. so, that's what i do, i think touchdown. i'm thinking, how can i help my offense. how can i help
taking it all the way is just an extra bonus." "our goal the first week was to win a game. and then ever since then, it's been just to win the next game. we're trying to keep it as simple as that. the good thing about football is no style points; when you win it's beautiful and when you lose it's not so good. that's kind of how we look at the world and it's as simple as that." ... and the hawkeyes shift their focus to indiana which will be on the road next saturday. but many people will be focused on tuesday because that's the first college football playoff poll. some are wondering whether the hawkeyes will be the one of the four teams. since it's halloween, you're probably wondering where my costume is. well, it's right here. i'm a sportscaster. get it? from kinnick stadium, josh christensen tv9 sports. --thanks josh...the last time texas visited jack trice stadium the game ended 31-30 and featured that controversial fumble-no fumble. --no lack of drama heading into this one as iowa state has a new offensive coordinator and

most pounds of food will be recognized. but for the students, the competition isn't the most important part.
