IOWA HAWKEYES 40 MINNESOTA GOPHERS 35: GIMME THAT PIG

10-0 FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.

GIVE THE GOPHERS CREDIT. They had a terrific game plan for Iowa's defense. They came to Kinnick with an offense ranked in the 100s nationally but exploited Iowa's weak spots and pulled enough trickery to keep this one a nail biter. They also failed to turn the ball over too and never gave up. It's a rivalry game and that's what you should expect (4-5) record be damned.

Defensively, Minnesota made proper adjustments at halftime to slow Iowa's rush game and hold LeShun Daniels to 44 yards on 12 carries at one point for the half. That was until the above Vine happened. Iowa still finished with 510 yards of total offense including 276 yards rushing on the night. Daniels finished with 195 on 26 carries with 3TDs.

CJ Beathard took our breath away and made us hold our breath. He's great theater. As is this this entire team and season thus far. We bought the ticket. Let's enjoy the ride.

THERE WILL BE PICS AND VIDS OF THE PIG TO COME. I'll update as they appear on Twitter. Let's party.
