WEEK 9: Golden Rodents

Welcome home Floyd!  Two trophy games up, two trophy games won.  Just wish this one had been by more points.  Shut up the Rodents for another year.

Let’s lead off with the Iowa defense this week.  Another game where they played well enough to win, and win we did.  They held Rodent QB Croft (who did play the whole game) to just 9 of 29 throws, for 129 yards, and the 1 interception.  By my count, Josh Jackson had 5 pass breakups himself, along with 3 tackles, to be the star of the defensive unit.  

The Rodents did get to 142 on the ground, but it clearly was not enough to help their passing attack.
