Pregame Notes from Sports Information


The Hawkeyes struggled defensively at the outset of the game against the Spartans, allowing them to score on their first three possessions. However, the Hawkeyes found themselves down by just seven, 28-21, heading into the locker room at halftime after Iowa's offense capitalized on senior Tim podge's blocked punt with less than two minutes remaining in the second quarter. With a minute left, the Hawkeyes trailing by 10, Iowa went 58 yards in six plays for a touchdown capped off by McCann's second rushing score of the afternoon. But six seconds on the clock didn't allow Iowa many options. The Spartans snagged the onside kick attempt to seal the victory.
