The Hawk-EYE The year started off with promise, our Hawkeyes ranked #21. Now they stand at #18 and are going to keep on moving close to the roses. FIRST GAME: Iowa dominated Northern Iowa 55-3. Ricki Stanzi passed for over 200 yards and Jewel Hampton ignited it all with over 150 yards rushing and 4 total touchdowns. Iowa's defense only allowed 2 first downs. SECOND GAME: Iowa at Iowa State Iowa State will never be able to beat Iowa under Coach White's helm Corso said, and it seemed like he was right. Iowa 45 - Iowa State 7 The game was again led by Stanzi and Hampton with the Defense only allowing 4 first downs. THIRD GAME: #18 Iowa at #13 Penn State Like Lee Corso's prediction, Penn State is over-rated. Iowa wins it big. Iowa 38 - Penn State 30 Final The game started off with not only allowing PSU's offense 8 yards and punt. Stanzi's quick passing attack combined with Hampton's power running earned 14 points in two drives. Penn State got their first down by a huge pass to Evan Royser, 78 yards untouched. The safety slipped in the rain turf. At the end of the half Iowa was up 24-7. Thanks to two key INT's by Captain MLB Pat Angerer. He also had 6 tackles (2 TFL) and a FF. Which earned him the player of the game. Iowa's defense was standout, allowing only 14 points going into the 4th quarter. Iowa's offense was barely on the field too. Scoring on 4 plays in 2 drives. The score was 38-14. Iowa looked like they had the win. Somehow, Penn State jumped off the bus and quickly ralleyed with the fans and shutdown Iowa's offense and made Iowa's defense look like Northern Iowa. Scoring 16 points quickly got them just 8 points behind and an onside kick with 52 seconds remaining. " And there goes the kick, bounces, recovered by Iowa!!! No wait! A big hit by Penn State! Fumble Fumble Fumble! Recovered by PSU! PSU! has the ball!" Brent Musburger said during the game. PSU had one last chance. Driving down the field. At PSU's own 42. 2 seconds left. "Red 44, Red 44, down, set, hit!" Just two pass rushes and the DE's in contain. "... Steps back, looking, watch out for Klug (Iowa DT) NO! Klug with the huge hit and it's over! it's over! Hawkeyes win!"
