IOWA 16, ILLINOIS 7 SECOND HALF GAME THREAD

More of that, please -- although better in the red zone would be nice.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Iowa leads 16-7 after a half of work thanks to some nifty passing and catching from CJ Beathard and Jerminic Smith.  That's OK... but it could be a lot better.  Iowa has left a lot of points on the field between a missed extra point, a failed fourth down attempt at the goal line, and a miss on an easy TD between CJB and Smith.  So, yeah, this could be more lopsided.  But a two-score lead is a good start -- let's keep it coming in the second half.

The usual rules apply.
