INJURY REPORT: It looks like Iowa came away from Ames without any significant health issues.

Senior running backs Albert Young and Damian Sims were dinged up during the game, but both continued playing. Kirk Ferentz didn't expect them to miss any time.

Freshman Dezman Moses limped off the field during a special teams play, but returned to the game and played to its conclusion.

Trey Stross (hamstring) did not dress for the game. The wide receiver made the trip but is expected to also miss next week's game at Wisconsin.

Offensive Lineman Dace Richardson dressed for the game but didn't see any action. He appeared to be a little hobbled coming off the field after the game.

Linebacker Jeff Tarpinian saw his first action of 2007 on special teams. The redshirt freshmen underwent offseason surgery on his leg.

WR Paul Chaney also saw his first action of the season. The freshman was back deep on the final kick return for Iowa.

Offensive lineman Brian Bulaga missed Saturday's game. He's likely to miss the trip to Wisconsin as well.

POSITION SWITCH?: Sophomore Tyler Blum worked out with the defensive line during Saturday's warm-ups. He had been in the listed in the offensive line two-deeps in the last several weeks.

Blum started as a defensive lineman with the Hawkeyes, moved to tight end and then offensive line. It appears he might have moved to improve Iowa's D-line depth.

QUICK SLANTS:

-Dezman Moses switched his number from 51 to 66…

-The first penalty of the game came at the 5:46 mark of the second quarter.

-The announced attendance was 49,516.

Iowa State held the Hawkeyes to 233 yards of offense, the lowest total allowed by the Cyclones since giving up 233 against Kansas State on Nov. 5, 2005.

Iowa's starting front four of Bryan Mattiton, Matt Kroul, Mitch King and Kenny Iwebema played every defensive snap. Linebackers Mike Humpal and Mike Klinkenborg, and defensive backs Adam Shada, Charles Godfrey, Harold Dalton and Devan Moylan also were in on every defensive play. DB Bradley Fletcher replacing LB A.J. Edds on a handful of nickel packages were the only substitution made on defense.

-The only other time that ISU won a game without a touchdown was a 2-0 victory against Drake on Nov. 6, 1948.
