21-17: NORTHWESTERN GOES UNDEFEATED FOR FIFTH TIME IN SIX SEASONS

Lord, here we go again. Iowa's defense wilts under pressure for the fourth time in nine games this year. That's a pattern. Ricky Stanzi's endgame management is startlingly suspect for the fourth time this season. Also a pattern.

Meanwhile, congratulations to Northwestern for winning their one-game season. Bravo guys. Didn't see the "turn the holding call meter down" move coming--at the least, it's measures classier than injuring Iowa's best player on offense. Northwestern will now finish the season 1-0 with the win over Iowa.

We've had some strong emotions in the game thread and one dude creating a fake account so he can bitch about the moderators (PROTIP: we can tell.), so let's avoid the fight-picking here. Lots to complain about as far as on-the-field stuff, and so long as it follows even the most basic rules of civility, it's cool. Let it out here. It's okay.
