Minnesota Golden Gophers 10, Iowa Hawkeyes 7 - Hawkeyes Answer Back

The Iowa Hawkeyes offense is actually kind of good. . .you know, when the Gophers allow them on the field.

Ricky Stanzi and company took over from their own 30-yard line, and proceeded to march down the field without a whole lot of resistance from the Minnesota defense. They got the Hawkeyes into third down situations twice. . .once, Stanzi ran for 10 yards on a third-and-9 to keep the drive alive, and the second one saw Stanzi hit a quick slant to receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos for a 7-yard score.

With 14:53 left in the second quarter, the Gophers lead the Hawkeyes by a score of 10-7, and are setting up with pretty good field position around their own 40-yard line.
