Iowa receiver Deven Harberts, who caught five passes for 63 yards, got the big plays started late in the third quarter with a backhanded snare of a lob pass from Chuck Hartlieb. Freshman running back Mike Saunders contributed the final Iowa touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Saunders scampered through a big hole in the Purdue line and outran the Boilermaker secondary 72 yards for the score. The Hawkeyes piled up a season-best 266 yards on the ground.

Linebacker Melvin Foster led the Iowa defensive effort, recording 13 tackles, one for an 11-yard loss.
