More Top Shots: Iowa vs. Penn State

As we Hawkeye fans continue to wash out the bad taste from Iowa’s dismal performance Saturday night against Penn State at Kinnick, I managed to rifle through some more shots I took.  Here are a few more from the action.

During the games opening drive for the Hawkeyes, Greg Garmon is upended and slammed face to the turf by Mike Mauti on this sweep right.

Here is the first carry of the game for Mark Weisman. This shot shows lots of jersey holding and a view of Brandon Scherff who broke his fibula a bit later in the game.

The good news is this image has some pretty good clarity. The bad news is the size of that hole that PSU RB Belton got to run through. This play was a big gainer for the Nittany Lions.

LT Brandon Scherff is placed on the cart after breaking his fibula and dislocating his ankle against Penn State. Scherff did his absolute best to inspire the crowd and his teammates as he clapped and fist pumped all the way to the locker room.  Not sure about you, but I don’t think my leg lays like that.

PSU RB Belton tries to elude Christian Kirksey.

Penn State RB Zwinak gets penetration through the Hawkeye defensive front and nearly crosses the goal line. Zwinak fumbled the ball a split second after I took this shot….

….and Tanner Miller recovers the lost ball for a touchback.

Hawkeye FB Brad Rodgers tries to score on a crucial 3rd down play ealry in the 3rd quarter. Rodgers was tackled and set up a 4th and Goal play that the Hawkeyes had to go for but failed on a poor throw from Vandenberg to Keenan Davis.


Jordan Cotton enters the end zone after his kick return for a touchdown against PSU. It was Cotton’s second kick return for a TD in as many weeks, although last weeks was called back due to a clipping penalty by Ray Hamilton. This TD return was too little too late in this game.


The Hawks will look to rebound from this bad loss on Saturday at Ryan Field as they face Northwestern.  The good news is Iowa is still in control of their own destiny in the Legends Division race.  The bad news is their offensive line is decimated with injury and will make it even more difficult to find a groove they have been unable to do thus far this season.

Go Hawks!
