WEEK 7: Hoosiers

Well teams might want to quit scheduling the Hawks for the homecoming games!  Back to back road wins, back to back sad Homecoming fans.

When we wrote that Indiana had not faced any good tight ends in practice, we did not quite think the Iowa tight ends would slice and dice the Hoosier defense as they did.  Fant, 4 for 102, with a long of 58, and 1 TD, and Hockenson 4 for for 197, a long a 58, and 2 TDS.  Of those 8 tight end catches, 3 touchdowns (to outscore Indiana), and the other 5 catches netted Hawkeye 1st downs.  Feel free to keep that up boys.

Those were just (just) half of the passing TDs that Nate would have on the day.
