Gophers At Hawkeyes: James Vandenberg Scores, Iowa Leads 24-0

In the battle for Floyd of Rosedale, things have gone from "getting ugly" to "are ugly" for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, as they now trail the Iowa Hawkeyes by 24 points.

After yet another three-and-out for the Gophers, who are 1-for-5 on third downs on the afternoon, the Hawkeyes took over at their own 48-yard line. The Hawkeyes actually did most of their damage through the air on the drive, with James Vandenberg connecting with Ray Hamilton and Keenan Davis on consecutive 20-yard passes to get the ball to the Minnesota 5-yard line.

The Hawkeyes thought that Mark Weisman had gotten his second touchdown of the day on first-and-goal, but the officials ruled him down inside the 1-yard line. Vandenberg took the ball over from there with a quarterback sneak, and another Mike Meyer extra point made the score 24-0 in favor of Iowa.

Not really many positives to take away from this one so far if you're pulling for the Gophers. If there's any chance of them getting back into this game, they need to start turning things around immediately.

With a little less than nine minutes remaining until halftime at Kinnick Stadium, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are getting pounded by the Iowa Hawkeyes, 24-0.
