Iowa Hawkeyes Kick-off 2014 with a Win Over Northern Iowa

The Iowa Hawkeyes defeated the University of Northern Iowa Panthers on the first weekend of the 2014 college football season by a score of 31-23.  It was a hard fought game by both teams and Iowa showed the fans at Kinnick Stadium it’s typical early season form, struggling to generate a running game and allowing UNI to stay in the game all the way up to Greg Mabin’s interception late in the 4th Quarter.  Mabin’s pick sealed the victory for the Hawkeyes and he established himself quickly as a new household name amongst Hawk fans.  Bo Bower also played well as a new face in the linebacker corps.

Enjoy some photographs I captured of all the game day festivities and game action. Go Hawks!
