The Iowa Hawkeyes have climbed to fifth in the latest AP College Football Poll after a 27-17 win at Iowa State. The Hawkeyes took advantage of four ISU turnovers to claim their sixth straight win in the series. It is the first time since 1960 the Hawkeyes have opened with wins over two ranked foes.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz is not focused on where the Hawks are ranked this early in the season.

Ferentz says the attention now turns to Kent State.
