Jacody Coleman injured his hamstring on an early special teams play. He did not return. Ferentz said it was a hamstring and he would probably miss next week's game.

Mike Humpal missed most of the second half when he reaggravated an sprained ankle. The senior linebacker said he'll be ready to go next week.

BOWL INFO: The Insight Bowl was the only postseason event with a representative at the game this week.

If you break down the possible bowl scenarios for Iowa should the Hawkeyes take care of business next week against Western Illinois, it seems like it will be the Camps or Insight. Iowa would be helped greatly if Michigan can beat Ohio State next week, giving the Big Ten two teams in the BCS.


Iowa ran a no-huddle offense on its first drive after running for short gains on its first two plays. Christensen felt like utilizing that strategy last week in the Hawkeyes' first TD drive at Northwestern last week ignited the offense.

Iowa failed to score on its opening drive for the 11th time this season.

Adrian Clayborn replaced Kenny Iwebema at RE on the team's second defensive series. On the third series, Christian Ballard came in at LE, Iwebema returned to RE and Bryan Mattison moved to RT for Mitch King. On the third series, it was Ballard and Clayborn at end and Mattison and Kroul at tackle. King did replace Mattison in the series. Karl Klug played a few downs when Minnesota got inside the red zone.

Julian Vandervelde and Dan Doering rotated at RG. Rob Bruggeman came in for Rafael Eubanks at center for a series late in the first half.

Albert Young passed the 3,000 yard career rushing mark with a 22-run in the first quarter. Albert rushed for 92 yards on 21 carries and two TDs on Saturday to raise his career total to 3,078.

Iwebema was whistled for a personal foul for hitting the quarterback in the head midway through the second quarter and was pulled from the game by the Iowa coaches. It was a tough call on the senior as Mitch King was hitting the QB low and taking him down as Iwebema was coming with pressure.

Iowa did not record a sack on Saturday.

The Hawkeyes scored 14, first-quarter points on Saturday after only scoring 17 in their previous 10 first quarters this season.

Karl Klug and Derrick Smith played the first games of their Iowa careers on Saturday.

Klinkenborg led Iowa with 13 tackles on Saturday to lift his career total to 211. He became the 58th Hawkeye to pass 200 and moved into the 47th place tie with Parker Wildeman on the all-time list.
