Fullback Joe Williams started the scoring with a burst through the middle of the Ohio State line to score on a 50 yard TD run. Ohio State answered that TD quickly with a touchdown of their own, but then the Hawks literally exploded. The Hawks reeled off 21 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 28-6 halftime lead. But the game was not over. Ohio State opened the third quarter with a quick TD to close to 28-12, and the teams battled furiously for the rest of the quarter. Then, with Iowa backed up on its own 9-yard line, halfback Larry Ferguson broke an electrifying 91-yard touchdown run to break the game open.

The win over #3 Ohio State allowed the Hawks to tie for the conference lead with Minnesota. It was the last home game for Coach Forest Evashevski at Iowa. Clips from highlights run from 28:20-29:40.
