Then, on fourth down, Christian McCaffrey fields his first punt of the afternoon, and Iowa can defend the play no better than No. 5's first catch of the afternoon. He runs past two players immediately with the help of his blockers, and then he cuts upfield in the open field to make one Iowa defender [Edit: their leading tackler, it turns out] miss. That's all it takes for a 63-yard punt return.   Full Story
