Wyoming at Iowa: Three things we learned

Trevor Jackson

"We lost a little composer at the end of the first half and that had an impact on the ball game".

Iowa: The Hawkeyes front seven put pressure on the Cowboys offense all afternoon, and its young secondary made its fair share of plays. The Cowboys also recovered a fumble in the frame when sophomore Cassh Maluia jumped on a fumble forced by junior Marcus Epps. "Our players are disappointed and I am personally, but we got a game coming up next Saturday".

Stanley finished the game 8-15 for 125 yards.

Quarterback Josh Allen had his highest completion percentage (57.5) since beating Utah State past year, but offensive coordinator Brent Vigen pulled the trigger on far fewer deep balls.

"There's some good things that we did out there", head coach Craig Bohl said, "but right now it doesn't feel real good to recognize a lot of those things".

Iowa scored two touchdowns on passes from Nate Stanley to Noah Fant for a 14-3 lead.

Do you intend to donate to Hurricane Harvey victims?
FLORIDO: My sense is that, yes - right? - because not only are these two big Red Cross shelters here in the center of the city. Showers are now being set up, doctors are on site and there is a fully functioning pharmaceutical area and emergency room.


The Iowa football team got to hear all about how good Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is for months.

"C.J. Johnson (Bellevue West) had three catches for 22 yards for the Cowboys". He won't be able to afford to make so many mistakes next week at Iowa State.

They likely left with notes on Iowa linebacker Josey Jewell. Wadley had 24 carries, most notably gaining 23 yards on a third-and-21 in the fourth quarter, while Nevada transfer James Butler finished with 47 yards on 10 carries.

STREIF HONORED: John Streif, a longtime trainer and travel coordinator for the Iowa athletic department was the honorary captain for Saturday's game. His favorite target has been Austin Conway, who has caught 5 passes for 24 yards. On Saturday, Wyoming caused four takeaways, including three fumbles.

The team captain had 14 tackles on the game, including 7 unassisted, 2 sacks, and 2.5 tackles for a loss. Iowa, Easley 4-77, Fant 2-29, VandeBerg 2-19.
