In the first quarter, Northern Iowa’s David Johnson stood out. He ran for 27 yards and one touchdown and caught one pass for 30 yards, and the Panthers lead 10-7 at the end of the first quarter. Northern Iowa struck first when Johnson pounded in a one-yard touchdown run, the final play of an eight-play, 83-yard drive. Sawyer Kollmorgen’s 30-yard pass to Johnson from the 24-yard line pushed the Panthers into enemy territory.
Iowa tied the game at seven after Mark Weisman ran one yard to paydirt to end a 10-play, 75-yard drive. The Hawkeyes threw just one time during that march downfield. A seven-play, 43-yard scoring drive by Northern Iowa snapped the 7-7 deadlock, as Tyler Sievertsen made a 49-yard field goal.
Iowa will start the second quarter with possession at the Panthers’ 42-yard line.
