 Week 10: Lions

Well, that was very disappointing.

Hawkeye defense - 600 yards allowed.  Last time that happened, 2000, Kirk’s 2nd year at the helm.

359 rushing yards allowed.  167 to Barkley.  6.9 per carry overall.  240 passing yards, not terrible, but the average of 21.8 per catch, even King was beat more than once.  

The worst team in the country at converting 3rd downs, Penn State (25%), went 7 for 14 (50%).  Iowa, by comparison, 2 for 10.  

The Iowa offense?  30 net rushing yards.  Wadley 9 for 28, Jr 10 for 18, C.J. lost the rest in sacks.
