Minnesota Golden Gophers 20, Iowa Hawkeyes 17 - Hawkeyes Get The Three Back

The Hawkeyes answered the Gophers’ most recent field goal with one of their own.

Iowa drove down the field after a short kickoff. . .been a lot of those on both sides. . .and got themselves into the Minnesota red zone. However, after a rare sack by Dwan Edwards (his third of the year, and only the team’s ninth), the Hawkeyes couldn’t convert another first down, and had to settle for a 35-yard field goal from freshman kicker Michael Meyer.

Forty-five seconds remain in the first half, and barring something weird, the Gophers will go into the locker room leading the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale by a score of 20-17.
