With nine seconds remaining in the first quarter, Tavian Banks broke through the Iowa State defense for an 89-yard scoring run- the longest of his career - to put Iowa up 7-0. The Hawkeyes never looked back as they went on to beat the Cyclones for the 14th-consecutive year, 38-13. Banks, who went on to post a career-high 182 yards on 18 carries, finished with three rushing touchdowns. His efforts won him Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors, Tim Dwight finally broke loose for a score, but not through the air. The junior receiver charged through the middle for a 5-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Matt Sherman also connected with Damon Gibson for a 42-yard score, their second in as many games. The Iowa defense, which played so well the previous week against Arizona, held Heisman Trophy candidate Troy Davis to 152 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown, but most of that was in the 2nd half when the game was out of reach. Iowa State managed just 290 yards (61 in the first half) while the Hawkeyes totaled 536. Matt Hughes led Iowa with eight solo tackles while Damien Robinson added six and Plez Atkins five.
