RECAP

It was the first Big Ten game of the season for both teams. Gordon Locke scored the only Hawkeye touchdown and a safety made the difference in an 8–7 Iowa win. The Hawkeyes had also defeated the Illini in the 1921 Big Ten opener for both teams. It was the first time Illinois had lost consecutive Big Ten openers since 1908 and 1909. The Hawkeyes broke the scoreless tie in the 3rd quarter with a Gordon Locke touchdown, but failed to make the extra point. Karl Engeldinger blocked a punt in the 4th quarter causing an Illinois safety, which proved to be the winning points in the game. Illinois scored a touchdown late, but it wasn't enough to beat the Hawkeyes.
