Iowa ended a two game losing streak to Iowa State.
AMES, Iowa (KTIV) -
Iowa ended a two game losing streak to Iowa State in the Cy-Hawk series, getting sweet revenge on their foes home field in a 27-21 win Saturday night.
They did it the old fashioned way.
Three yards and a cloud of dust is about the only way to describe the Hawkeyes game plan.
They ran the ball 60 times for 218 yards.
Mark Weisman carried the carried the load toating the rock 35 times for 145 yards.
"I thought he did a great job," Head Coach Kirk Ferentz said about Weisman's performance. "I thought all our backs ran hard. Bullock ran hard, Jordan came in and did some got in and did some good things, too. I said a couple of weeks ago we're going to need all four of the guys, and Mark, I can't say enough about his efforts out there and what he does as a football player for our football team."
On the flip side, Iowa State's air attack couldn't be stopped.
Sam Richardson and Quenton Bundrage torched the Iowa secondary, hooking up 7 times for 146 yards and threw three second half touchdowns. However, it wasn't enough.
Iowa State is now 0-2 for the first time since 2007.
"It's not time to panic," senior Jacques Washington said. "We're a young team. I like what I saw at the end. We could have folded down three touchdowns and said 'hey let's get beat,' but came back and made it a game at the end. Had an opportunity to win the game."
Iowa battles Western Michigan next Saturday, while Iowa State has another off week.
