Iowa's red-zone inefficiency dooms Hawkeyes in loss
By Nick Filipowski, Weekend Sports Anchor - bio | email
Iowa was 3-for-4 in the red-zone kicking only three field goals.
The Hawkeyes second half struggles continued on Saturday as they were nearly shutout, only managing a field goal the final 30 minutes in a 28-9 loss to Wisconsin.
Red Zone inefficiency has also plagued Iowa.
Against the 24th ranked Badgers, the Hawkeyes were in the red zone four times, but settled for three field goals. Wisconsin had no such issues.
The team says mental mistakes were the difference on both sides of the ball.
"We've just got to go out there and get stops as best as we can. We go into the game thinking it's on our shoulders. If we can hold them and shut them out, they won't win."
"When you play a team that's very tough, and makes it tough on you, if you make it tougher on yourself, it's not a good thing. That's a lesson we're going to have to learn if we're going to push it over the top here."
Iowa travels to Purdue on Nov. 9.
