Somehow the injury list got even longer after this mismatch against the top-rated Illini defense. With Parker Wlideman as Iowa's only first-team defensive lineman available, the Hawkeyes looked helpless, giving up 478 total offensive yards. They also struggled on offense, with QB Mike Duprey being sacked 5 times during the game. They lost two more quarterbacks in the game when Duprey and Corby Smith left with injuries. Jefferson Bates came in, but was not able to throw very far. He did complete a 1-yard TD pass to punter/TE Nick Gallery for Iowa's only score late in the game.

The game was similar to last year's 49-3 loss to Illinois. Iowa has lost 5 straight conference games, repeating last year's feat.

Illinois kicker Chris Richardson made FGs of 52 and 48 yards, and Robert Holcombe rushed for 101 yards.

Bobby Diaco It's tough, I hate to lose, I've won all my life and I don't like losing. I'm not a quitter, that's one thing I'm not.
