The Hawks traded field goals to start the game, but the Broncos got at TD late in the 1st quarter. Another Nate Kaeding FG brought it to 10-6, a 76-yard TD pass, followed by a 36-yard TD pass had the Hawks down 24-6 at halftime. Scott Mullen connected on TD passes to Kahlil Hill for 75 yards and Kevin Kasper for 6 yards to cut the deficit to 24-20, but they could not get any more offense in the 4th quarter. The Broncos added another FG to seal the upset win. It was the first game played between Iowa and Western Michigan (a member of the MAC conference), and it was the school's first victory over a Big Ten opponent.

Scott Mullen I don't care about what anybody in the media writes about us. If you guys want to give up on us, I don't care. We're not giving up on ourselves. It's too early in the season for us to go down - we're not doing that.
