RECAP

Backup RB Rob Thein had a pair of touchdown catches and ran for a score as Iowa ran off 28 unanswered points. Tavian Banks carried 24 times for 126 yards and a touchdown Banks' 15 touchdowns match Sedrick Shaw's single-season school record set last year.

Besides the tandem of Banks and Thein, who had 54 yards on 11 carries and caught three passes for 61 more, it was the Hawkeyes defense that made a halftime adjustment and took over the game, grinding Purdue's vaunted attack to a halt. Free safety Eric Thigpen had two interceptions.
