Following several first-half mistakes, Iowa's offense got back on track for 21 third-quarter points on the way to a 31-10 victory. The Hawkeyes, behind a potent passing attack, marched beyond midfield three times in the first half only to have the drives end on a fumble, blocked kick and an interception. Iowa tied the game at seven on Tavian Banks' 9-yard run, and the Hawkeyes capped a nine play, 65-yard drive with a 32-yard Zach Bromert field goal for a 10-7 halftime lead. Indiana tied the contest before Iowa charged back to score again on Banks' 16-yard scoring run. Tom Knight gave the Hawkeyes a little breathing room with a 57-yard scoring off an interception return. It was almost a replay of his 60-yard return for a score at Kinnick Stadium the year before last year. Banks ended Iowa's scoring on a 28-yard romp at the end of the third quarter. Banks finished with 80 yards on 15 carries and three touchdowns, while Matt Sherman passed for a season-high 243 yards. Matt Hughes led Iowa defensively with 10 tackles and two sacks while Damien Robinson had six tackles and an interception.
