The Iowa Hawkeyes ended this game almost as soon as it started. Johnathan Bank’s 54-yard kickoff return set the tone early and the team never looked back. The Northwestern defense did itself no favors either, as the secondary made quarterback Jake Rudock look like the Big Ten’s best quarterback, at least during the first half.
Freshman running back Justin Jackson continues to impress. He accounted for 106 of the offense’s 146 total yards.
Zack Oliver entered the game in relief of Trevor Siemian, and did not fare much better. Northwestern drops to 3-5 (2-3 B1G) with the 48-7 loss.
