Hawkeyes Beat Cyclones in Blowout Fashion

Iowa takes Cy-Hawk rivalry and turns it into a joke.

The Cy-Hawk rivalry is one of the most exciting rivalries in my time.  The Hawkeyes and Cyclones have gone back and forth in the past couple of years, but Iowa took advantage of their talent this year.

The Hawkeyes were in control of the game throughout as they blew the Cyclones out.

The Hawkeyes got the scoring started in the first quarter when C.J. Beathard found George Kittle for nine yard touchdown.  The Hawkeyes followed suit in three minutes later when Beathard found Akrum Wadley in the end zone to make the score 14-0.

The Cyclones would add a field goal before the first quarter ended and the Hawkeyes took a 14-3 lead into the second quarter.  

Beathard remained solid for the Hawkeyes as he tallied two more TD's in the second quarter, which stretch Iowa's lead to 28-3 and the rout was officially on.

Iowa got the running game  going in the second half as Wadley and LeShun Daniels ran for a touchdown a piece as Iowa found themselves up by a count of 42-3.  

Beathard left the game in the middle of the fourth quarter to make way for true freshman Nate Stanley.  Beathard finished 19-28 for 235 yards and three passing touchdowns.  Iowa's Matt Vandeberg caught seven passes for 129 yard and a TD.

The Hawkeyes saw Daniels go over 100 yards to go along with a touchdown, but Akrum Wadley also had a strong showing with 9 carries for 49 yard and a touchdown.  

Iowa did a good job bottling up Mike Warren who carried the ball 7 times for 28 yards,  Allen Lazard was the only Cyclone that really did any damage with 7 catches and 111 yards in the game.

Iowa did a good job of blowing out a Cyclone team that isn't up to par with them.  Iowa has a tendency to play down to their opponents level, but Iowa did a good job of avoiding that tonight.

Iowa enters week 3 at 2-0 and will take on the North Dakota State Bison in week 3, looking to make it 3-0.
