-Stanzi became the first Iowa quarterback to throw four or more interceptions in a game since Jason Manson was picked four times at Syracuse in 2006. Gary Snook was the last Iowa QB to throw five picks in a game. That happened in the mid-60s.


Bill Lynch on Sash's interception being the game-changer: The fact that we came back and had a score, that ended up being a field goal and then we still had a missed field goal that was close. So you know, I'm not getting into what was the biggest play. Obviously, when we had them pinned down there, then the one that was 96 yards that was a big play right there. You know, when they get the 98-yard play from their defense and then 96 on offense, those are big plays that are tough to overcome."
