BJ Lowery is the first Iowa player to returned two interceptions for scores.
Iowa City, IA (KTIV) -
Outside of Kevonte Martin-Manley's special team heroics, linebacker BJ Lowery was instrumental in limiting Western Michigan in Iowa's 59-3 rout.
Lowery returned two interceptions for scores, becoming the first Hawkeye player to have two pick-six's in a game.
The feat puts Lowery in the NCAA record books, tying him for the second most interceptions returned for TD's in one game.
But, it was the performance of the offense, defense and special teams that has Head Coach Kirk Ferentz excited about the things to come.
"If we've had good teams in November and beyond that, usually we're doing the right thing in October and late September," Head Coach Kirk Ferentz said. "That's our challenge right now. We've got to keep our foot on the gas."
The Hawkeyes open Big Ten Conference play Saturday against Minnesota.
