For a while, this game was unfolding like a few other ISU victories over Iowa have. Iowa was reating far more scoring chances and controlling the game for the most part, but the game was tied heading into the fourth quarter. And then, early in the fourth, a long Iowa drive ended when Jordan Canzeri fumbled at the ISU 7.
I assumed this was where the Cyclones would steal the game. Instead, ISU punted, Iowa scored with two minutes left, and then the Hawkeyes picked off a pass and scored again two minutes later. The universe evened itself out, and the Hawkeyes won the game by about as much as the stats said they should have.
