SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Blaze season continues on course with the herky-jerky, up-and-down roller-coaster ride that has defined the first eight weeks.

Utah (3-4) dropped its second game against Arizona last Saturday and will look to return to even money against Iowa (4-4) at EnergySolutions Arena Saturday in a game that is designed to promote breast cancer awareness.

The epically named Barnstormers topped New Orleans, 62-16, last week in their best performance of the season. Iowa is led by quarterback J.J. Raterink who has a 40-to-4 touchdown to interception ratio this season. Defensively, Iowa is led by former Blaze and All-Arena linebacker Mike Lewis, who’s registered a team-high four sacks this season.
