Aaron White and Josh Oglesby each scored 13 points and Iowa rallied from a 23-point deficit to clip Gardner-Webb 65-56 on Saturday night. The Hawkeyes trailed by as much as 38-15 late in the first half before a 15-0 run cut Gardner-Webb’s lead to eight.
Devin Gardner accounted for six touchdowns to help No. 23 Michigan rout Iowa 42-17 Saturday. The Wolverines (8-3, 6-1 Big Ten) weren’t stopped on offense by the hapless Hawkeyes (4-7, 2-5) until Gardner threw an interception early in the fourth quarter.
Michigan’s offense looked sharp in the third quarter, scoring 14 points, and the Wolverines now lead 42-10. Michigan finished with 110 yards through the air and 64 on the ground in the quarter. The Wolverines’ defense shut down Iowa, allowing only 11 yards of offense in the quarter.
Michigan got things going through the air, passing for 183 yards in the quarter, and the Wolverines now lead 28-10. Michigan has erupted for 14 straight points. The Wolverines broke the 7-7 deadlock when Devin Gardner found Roy Roundtree open for a 37-yard touchdown pass to finish off a six-play, 79-yard scoring drive. Denard Robinson’s 40-yard run from the 30-yard line pushed Michigan into enemy territory.
Iowa’s Henry Krieger-Coble caught two passes for 20 yards and one touchdown in the quarter, and the two teams are tied 7-7 at the end of the first. No. 24 Michigan struck first when Devin Gardner turned a quarterback sneak into a one-yard touchdown run, the final play of a 12-play, 70-yard drive.
After a week of games, primarily of the cupcake blowout variety, the Big Ten is a cumulative 23-5. Can we learn anything from what we’ve seen so far? Here’s a few thoughts heading into the weekend.
