Iowa cruised to a 56-0 win over Ball State for its fifth-consecutive season opening victory. The shutout was the Hawkeyes' first since blanking Kent State (51-0) in the 2001 season opener.

The Hawkeyes scored points on seven of their first eight first half possessions, with all seven scoring drives resulting in touchdowns. RB Marcus Schnoor scored on a one-yard run to open the scoring, followed by a RB Albert Young two-yard plunge.

Jovon Johnson tallied Iowa's third score on a 90-yard punt return. The return came following a Ball State quick kick by Ball State QB Joey Lynch from shotgun formation on fourth down. The punt return is the fourth longest in school history and third longest in Kinnick Stadium.

QB Drew Tate connected with WR Clinton Soloman for a seven yard touchdown to give the Hawkeyes a 28-0 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

Iowa scored three more times in the second quarter on a 33-yard reception by WR Herb Grigsby and a pair of RB Sam Brownlee runs (11 yards and one yard). After a scoreless third quarter, RB Shonn Greene became the eight Hawkeye to score a point on a six yard run in the fourth quarter.

Hawkeye quarterbacks combined for 19-20 passing for 200 yards and two touchdowns. Tate completed 9-10 passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns, Jason Manson completed 9-9 passes for 92 yards and Cy Phillips completed his only attempt for nine yards.

Greene led all rushers, carrying the ball 18 times for 116 yards, while Young gained 61 yards on just five carries. Moeaki led all Iowa receivers with three receptions for 28 yards.

Iowa's defense recovered one fumble and collected seven tackles for loss, including three sacks. DB Devan Moylan recorded a team-best six tackles (4 solo) and DE Bryan Mattison had five tackles.
