After falling behind 21-0 in the first quarter, the Hawks fought back and outplayed the Lions in the 2nd half to keep the game from getting out of hand. Butch Caldwell replaced starting QB Kyle Skogman, and completed nine of 16 passes for 152 yards and a TD. He connected with Bill Schultz on two passes for 49 yards and 44 yards to set up a 7-yard TD pass to Jim Jensen to avoid the shutout.

The defense settled down after the early deficit and ended up recovering two fumbles. Dan LaFleur was Iowa's leading tackler with four solos and six assists.
