RECAP

Iowa fell behind 7-0 on a 100-yard interception return from Rod Woodson. Iowa came right back and tied the score on a 64·yard touchdown pass from Tom Poholsky to Quinn Early, then dominated the rest of the way. Poholsky threw for 3 TDs, and Rick Bayless rushed for 121 yards on 18 carries, giving him 962 yards for the season.

The defense helped hold the Purdue rushing attack to 90 yards. Linebackers Brad Quast, George Davis and defensive end Bruce Gear each grabbed an interception.
