Box score

Akrum Wadley scored on 26-yard run on the play after Iowa's defense forced a turnover deep in Rutgers' territory and the Hawkeyes rebounded from their stunning loss to North Dakota State with a 14-7 victory over tougher-than-expected Rutgers on Saturday.

Safety Brandon Snyder set up the score by stripping the ball from receiver Andre Patton with just under nine minute to play to help Iowa (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) win its ninth straight regular-season conference game and its seventh straight league win on the road.

If Rutgers is going to have any chance in its Big Ten Conference opener against Iowa, it can't afford another bad start.

The Scarlet Knights fell behind Washington 24-0, trailed Howard by two touchdowns and New Mexico by 21 points - all in the first quarter.

Rutgers (2-1) was able to overcome the deficits in the last two games, but it won't be so easy if Iowa (2-1) comes ready to play on Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium after its loss to North Dakota State, the winner of the last five FCS national titles.

There must be something in the water in Iowa.

For the third time this season, the No. 1 team in the land lost in the Hawkeye State.

The latest example came on ESPN's "Big Monday" when No. 19 Iowa State took out newly-minted No. 1 Oklahoma, 82-77.

I wasn't so sure about this Tyler Sash, the safety the Giants drafted in the 6th round out of Iowa last weekend. Then, I did some research. By all accounts, and what I have seen, this guy can play the game of football.

Sash is the type of player the Giants need in their secondary and on special teams: heady, tough and motivated.

The passages below are from the Iowa Football blog Black Heart, Gold Pants.....
