Tavian Banks had 30 carries for 169 yards and two touchdowns for Iowa, which again was without injured quarterback Matt Sherman. Banks raced 46 yards for a score to give Iowa the lead less than six minutes into the contest, and gave the lead back to the Hawkeyes with a one-yard TD run with 1:41 left in the first half. It was his 19th score of the season and 17th on the ground, both school records. Tim Dwight was limited to 32 yards on two catches and was limited to one punt return for 13 yards as Northwestern repeatedly kicked away from him.

Iowa did not help itself by missing two field goals, throwing an interception and failing on a 4th-and-3 from the Wildcats 27 within its last six possessions. The Hawkeyes were 0-for-4 on field goals. Chad Johnson missed a 50-yarder and Zach Bromert a 43-yarder in the second quarter. Bromert missed a 33-yarder in the third quarter and Johnson was way short and right on a 47-yard attempt with 2:57 to play. They also had a bad snap during a punt resulting in a safety. Randy Reiners was 4-of-10 for just 71 yards and an interception.
