Iowa Hawkeyes 24, Minnesota Golden Gophers 20 - Iowa Capitalizes On Gopher Miscue

The Hawkeyes took the DeLeon Eskridge fumble and turned it into their first lead of the day.

Ricky Stanzi and company moved the ball down the field, primarily on the ground with freshman running back Marcus Coker, and a big third down was converted on a pass to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos. The touchdown pass went from Stanzi to Marvin McNutt, the sixth consecutive game that duo has hooked up for a score.

The extra point was good, and with 11:35 remaining in the Gophers’ 2010 season, they trail for the first time all day by a score of 24-20.
