It was a rare fourth quarter comeback.
Iowa, Largest 4th Qtr Comeback Wins - Since 1999 2011 vs Pittsburgh - 17 2009 vs Indiana - 10 2014 vs Ball State - 10— Matt Benson (@mbenson6) September 6, 2014
Jake Rudock rallied the troops and led the Hawks down field not once, but twice, leading the team to touchdowns in the game's last minutes. Iowa is struggling to find it's identity on offense and had just three points heading into the games final quarter. After C.J. Beathard got an early series in the game, it looked like Iowa had a QB controversy. But, Rudock showed why he's the man finding Jake Duzey for six for the game's winning score with a minute to play.
Is it just me or does the Hawkeye offense look a little Patriots-y?
Jake Rudock is believed to be the first Iowa QB to have 60+ completions, 90+ pass attempts & 570+ yards passing thru 2 games. #Hawkeyes— Gameday Live (@IowaFBLive) September 7, 2014
Iowa's 592 yards passing are the most thru 2 games in program history since Long & Vlasic combined for 671 yards in 1985. #Hawkeyes— Gameday Live (@IowaFBLive) September 7, 2014
THE PLAYERS TALKED AFTER THE GAME. Marc Morehouse has several posts with player videos talking about the tough win. Here's part I with Jake Duzey, Marshall Koehn and Derrick Willies. Koehn takes ownership of his misses and says he'll work to improve. Part II has C.J. Beathard, Louis Trinca-Pasat and Ike Boettger, who talks about his first real shot at playing time subbing in for Scherff. Part III is Jordan Canzeri, Quinton Alston and the defensive player of the game, Drew Ott. Finally, part IV Tevaun Smith, Carl Davis and the Ferentz video already posted above.
