 Week 1: Miami of Ohio

It looks like a perfect day for football as the ESPNU cameras move into Kinnick. as the Hawkeye faithful ramp up the noise to kick off the 2016 football season.

And things are different right from the start, as Miami wins the toss and takes the ball, so Iowa lines up to kick.  It’s the other #16 doing the kickoff, Ron Coluzzi, a senior, (graduate transfer) and he boots the ball 8 yards deep in the end zone for a touchback.

Miami lines up with Bahl in the gun, with twin wideouts on each side. He snaps it, looks left, and quickly fires it to the far hash, caught and dropped at the 32, 7 yards, 2nd and 3.

Back to the gun again, a tailback moves into position behind Bahl, he read/options it and does hand the ball to Smith, he goes straight ahead for about 4 yards, and that is enough for a 1st down at the  36.
