University of Iowa police 'win' Twitter battle with Iowa State

Kirk Ferentz and Paul Rhoads will face off this weekend when Iowa and Iowa State play their annual rivalry game.

The Iowa-Iowa State series doesn't have much national significance because, hey, it involves teams from Iowa. Still, it's a nasty rivalry, as most in-state showdowns are.

The teams meet Saturday at Iowa; the Hawkeyes are 2-0 and the Cyclones 0-2.

Tuesday, the respective university police departments were involved in a Twitter "battle" of sorts -- and it was a clear win for Iowa.

The Hawkeyes have won four of the past six meetings and lead the series 40-21. But Iowa State won in 2012 in its most recent trip to Iowa City. The teams first played in 1894 and have played annually since 1977.
