Northwestern will be without two key members of its defensive front as they try to pickup their second win of the season on Saturday.
According to the weekly injury report released late Thursday, defensive tackle Trevor Kent and Earnest Brown IV will both miss this weekend’s contest against Iowa. Both players went down with injuries in last Friday’s game against Ohio State.

Joe Spivak and Jake Saunders will be thrust into larger roles with Kent sidelined, while Eku Leota should see more time on the outside with Brown out. Northwestern will look to make it four straight wins over Iowa as the Hawkeyes head to Ryan Field on Saturday for Homecoming.
