Official Game Program


Iowa RB Tyler Goodson rushed for 106 yards, including an 80-yard TD to seal the victory. Ihmir Smith-Marsette caught 7 passes for a career-high 140 yards and two touchdowns, but injured himself on the TD celebration. The Iowa defense was outstanding, limiting the Badgers to just 225 total yards, 56 on the ground, and big plays in critical situations.

Iowa was in control 21-7 in the 4th, but a botched punt gave Wisconsin the ball at the Iowa. Jack Campbell intercepted the ball in the end zone on 4th down, and Goodson ran for a TD on the ensuing drive.

It was the first victory for Iowa over Wisconsin at home since 2008. Iowa finished 2nd in the West Division with the win, their sixth in a row after starting 0-2. They also played all scheduled games without any cancellations, and had very few players miss games due to COVID-19.
