 Week 4: Rutgers

It was a cool overcast day as our tailgate began outside the stadium on Saturday.  Perfect for football of course.  It did warm up a bit by the time the game kicked off, and would stay that way throughout the afternoon.  

Rutgers won the toss and took the ball, and Coluzzi gave them no return.

This drive would get all the way down to the Iowa 8 yard line in 14 plays, but on 3rd and 6 there, Rutgers would complete a pass but get flagged for offensive pass interference. Now back at the Iowa 23 with a 3rd and 21, Laviano would be drilled by Hesse on a 13 yard sack, and that would knock Rutgers out of field goal range.  Iowa had the ball at the 8 after the punt was downed.
