Start Time: 1:00 pm CST


The Hawks were shut down offensively during Homecoming, and Illinois' offense and defense looked like a top caliber team, not a 1-4 team. Iowa's early offensive possessions resulted in a fumble, turnover on downs (4th and 1) and a safety after an errant snap. At the start of the 2nd half, Iowa fumbled again on their own 2-yard line, setting up another Illini TD. The next possession resulted in an interception. The Hawkeyes' only score came on a Todd Romano 35-yard field goal with two seconds left in the second quarter.
