NCAA Game Summary - Iowa at Minnesota



(Saturday, September 28)

Final Score: Iowa 23, Minnesota 7

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Mark Weisman rushed for 147 yards as the Iowa Hawkeyes defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 23-7, in each team's Big Ten Conference opener at TCF Bank Stadium.

Weisman did his damage on 24 carries and has now rushed for at least 100 yards four times this season. Jake Rudock completed 15-of-25 passes for 218 yards with two touchdowns (one rushing) and an interception. Rudock's key target through the air was Kevonte Martin-Manley, who had six catches for 56 yards. Damon Powell had just one catch but it went for 74 yards and a touchdown. The Hawkeyes (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) have won four in a row after dropping their season opener.

Minnesota (4-1, 0-1) struggled to generate offense on the afternoon as it suffered its first loss of the season. Philip Nelson completed just 12- of-24 passes for 135 yards with a touchdown and two picks. Rodrick Williams Jr. led the Gophers in rushing with only 22 yards, while Derrick Engel had five catches for 67 yards and a score.

It was all Iowa in the first half. Midway through the opening quarter, Mike Meyer got the Hawkeyes on the board with a 49-yard field goal. In the second quarter, Rudock managed a four-yard touchdown run and also hit Powell on a short completion that Powell took for a 74-yard score. Iowa led 17-0 at intermission.

Meyer made a 23-yard field goal for the Hawkeyes to increase their lead to 20 early in the third quarter.

Minnesota finally answered back when Nelson found Engel for a 23-yard scoring strike at the 3:06 mark of the third quarter.

Meyer added one more field goal, a 46-yarder with under five minutes left in the game.

The Hawkeyes tallied 464 yards of total offense compared to just 165 yards for Minnesota. James Morris led Iowa's defensive attack with eight tackles, a sack and an interception.
