In Kirk Ferentz' first victory as Iowa coach, the Hawkeyes used a strong second half by the offense and a shutout performance by the defense in earning a 24-0 win over Northern Illinois. The Hawkeye defense held Northern Illinois to 107 rushing yards in the game. The Hawkeyes led 3-0 at halftime and used a 99-yard drive to increase the margin to 10-0 early in the fourth period. With the Huskies set to move within seven points on a 23-yard field goal attempt, the Hawkeye defense came up with the big play. DB Matt Bowen blocked the kick and LB LeVar Woods picked up the loose ball and rambled 87 yards to give Iowa a 17-0 advantage.
