Head Coach: Hayden Fry
Attendance: 69,473
Kickoff Temp: 61° F
Start Time: 2:35 PM CST


In Hayden Fry's last home game as head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes, his defense played well enough to keep the game within reach for the first half before succombing to OSU's star power down the stretch. The Hawkeyes forced three turnovers, but could get little going offensively. Kyle McCann came in for injured Scott Mullen and saw success early, but the Buckeyes solved the Hawkeye offense, blitzing McCann often and totalling 11 sacks. The tired Iowa defense couldn't get the stops in the second half against QB Joe Germaine, WR David Boston, and RB Joe Montgomery. Hayden Fry ended his Hawkeye career with a 3-8 record.
