Floyd Of Rosedale: Iowa Finally Gets On The Board, Leads 7-0

The Iowa Hawkeyes have kept the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale, thanks to a couple of missed field goals, but it was a Minnesota miscue that set up the Hawkeyes' first score of the day to give the visitors a 7-0 lead.

After Mike Meyer had his second field goal miss of the afternoon, this one off of the left upright from 43 yards out, the Gophers took possession at their own 25-yard line. After an 18-yard pass to Da'Jon McKnight moved the Gophers ahead, Duane Bennett fumbled on the next play, and the Hawkeyes found themselves at their own 47.

It took the Hawkeyes 10 plays to move the 53 yards to get into the end zone, including a quarterback sneak on a fourth down by Iowa signal caller James Vandenberg, but Iowa got it done. The finishing touch came on a 12-yard pass from Vandenberg to Marvin McNutt for the touchdown, and a 7-0 Iowa lead.

We have five minutes remaining in the first half of the battle for the bronze pig, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail 7-0.
