LET'S GO TO THE TAPE.
Iowa Has Record-Setting Day in 59-3 Win Over Western Michigan (via Iowa Hawkeyes)
KIRK FERENTZ TALKS ABOUT IOWA'S DOMINATING WIN. Here's the video from Hawkeye Drive.
LET'S GET RECAP-Y. Iowa scored 59 points and four of the Hawkeye scores came from special teams and defense.
B.J. Lowery is the second Big Ten player in the BCS era (since 1998) with two pick-6's in a single game. #Hawkeyes— Matt Benson (@mbenson6) September 21, 2013
Kevonte Martin-Manley will likely win some player of the week awards after his Nile Kinnick-like performance returning punts. Manley said the rugby style punts are difficult to catch. Once he made the catch the rest looked easy. KMM finished the day with 184 yards on punt returns for two touchdowns.
THE PLAYERS TALKED ABOUT THE WIN. Hawkeye Drive has several post-game interviews with the Hawkeyes from the locker room. Two of the games biggest stars talked to Hawk Mania. You can see what Kevonte Martin-Manleyand B.J. Lowery had to say about their big day.
LET'S LOOK AT THE STATS. The Hawkeyes have the 54th ranked offense in the nation according to the latest NCAA Football stats. Iowa rushed the ball for 245 yards against WMU and now average 244 yards per game. Good enough for 24th in the country. Iowa has scored 141 points on the season and average 35.3 points per game. The Hawks total defense is allowing 290.8 yards a game, 19th in the nation. Iowa's rushing defense is ranked 12th allowing only 91.5 yards a game and thus far, zero rushing touchdowns on the season. They held WMU to 1 of 14 on third downs and have the 8th ranked third down conversion defense. Through four games opponents are converting 24.1% (14 or 58).
Individually, as you can imagine, Kevonte Martin-Manley now leads the nation in average punt return yards (31.1) and is tied for the most punt return touchdowns (2). Mark Weisman is now sixth in total rushing yards (468) and 17th in rushing yards per game (117). B.J. Lowery is tied with a handful for 5th with three INTs on the year.
IT WAS A NIGHT TO CELEBRATE BUT LET'S NOT GO TOO FAR.

IT'S TIME TO PLAY FOR FLOYD. The Minnesota Gophers are (4-0) heading into Saturday's game with Iowa in Minneapolis. The Gophers could be without their starting quarterback and running back. Minnesota has a stout rushing attack this season with an average of 282.3 yards per game. Their passing game has only averaged 105 yards per game and is ranked 118th in the nation. Minnesota passers have completed only 33 passes on the year. Iowa is currently a 1.5 point favorite in Las Vegas.
IF YOU'RE HEADING UP NORTH.
