    Iowa looked unstoppable against Miami.

    The first half began with both teams using their star HBs on impressive TD drives....rinse and repeat. After the dust cleared in the first quarter the score was 14-14 in a wild offensive showing. The 2nd quarter saw both defenses make adjustments and tighten up. Iowa was just a little tighter. While Miami held Iowa to a couple FGs, Iowa was able to force a punt and entered the half up 24-21.

    The second half was all Iowa. Miami opened with a quick 3 and out. Iowa followed with a long TD drive lead by HB Marcus Coker and finished with a curl route to WR Steven Staggs for a TD. On Miami's next play Iowa got a good pass rush and hit the QB as he was throwing and it went straight to blitzing SS Larry Hollis for an easy pick-6 (bad luck for Masler).

    From there Iowa was able to run out the clock for an impressive wins.

    Key Stats:

    Coming off a disappointing loss against a stacked OSU team, the Hawkeyes played angry. Even without star HB Marcus Coker (injured for 3 weeks against OSU) Iowa blew out the Illini. QB Nick Richardson continues to look like a superstar in only his second season and showed his leadership ability in the bounce-back win. Illinois did demonstrate a fierce pass rush all game long, but Richardson was able to limit the damage and keep the defense at bay for most of the game: only getting sacked twice. The Iowa running game was largely non-existant without Coker until the 4th quarter when Andre Hurd finally found some room while trying to run out the clock. Hurd ended with 97 yards, 80 of which came in the final period.

    Iowa's young defense looked downright scary. They managed 8 sacks and knocked 3 Illinois players out for the game and possibly longer. LE Kenny Wright had 5 sacks on the day, most of which came when Illinois couldn't figure out how to pick up the blitzing linebackers. The secondary is still shaky, but so far the pass rush has masked that deficiency with the exception of the OSU game.

    Key Stats:
    QB Nick Richardson 13/23 241 yards 3TDs 0INTs 5 carries 28 yards
    HB Andre Hurd 21 carries 97 yards
    WR Kevonte Martin-Manley 5 catches 117 yards 2TDs
    LE Kenny Wright 6 tackles 5 sacks 1FF
    LB John Wallace 7 tackles 1 sack
    SS Larry Hollis 5 tackles 2 sacks
