It’s early in the season, so it comes as no surprise that we saw a lot of new looks across the Big Ten during Week 2 action. See all of the uniform and helmet alterations the Big Ten showcased Saturday in this post. Have a picture of a Big Ten uniform or arena/stadium alteration? Please tweet it to me (@BTNBrentYarina) for my Clothes Call blog.
It was a busy afternoon of Big Ten football action, with six games during the middle block. The results weren’t exactly what the Big Ten had hoped for, either, as it went 3-3 after opening the day 2-1 in the early games. Read my snap reactions to the afternoon games in this post.
Steele Jantz threw for 241 yards and the game’s only touchdown on Saturday and Iowa State beat Iowa 9-6 for its first win in Iowa City in 10 years. Jake Knott‘s interception with 1:11 left sealed the win for the Cyclones (2-0), whose defense held Iowa to just 304 yards of offense.
The third quarter saw both teams combine for no points and one turnover and the margin is still six, as Iowa State leads 9-3. Steele Jantz clinched a 200-yard passing game with 46 in the quarter, part of his 209-yard day through three quarters for the Cyclones.
Aaron Horne led Iowa State in the quarter. He caught two passes for 42 yards, and the Cyclones now lead 9-3. Iowa State added to its advantage when Edwin Arceo made a 21-yard field goal, capping off a nine-play, 60-yard drive to give the Cyclones the lead, 9-3.
Iowa State stuffed the run, giving up just 11 yards on the ground in the first quarter and the Cyclones lead 6-3 at the end of the first quarter. Iowa State scored when Steele Jantz and Aaron Horne combined for a five-yard touchdown to clinch a 10-play, 75-yard drive, giving the Cyclones the game’s first lead. Iowa State missed the extra point.
Big Ten Field Pass on BTN2Go kicked off last week from Ohio State, and it was a blast. What is the Field Pass? One hour before a selected BTN Big Ten football game this season, we’ll turn on a BTN camera at the home team’s football stadium for a live video feed to show you how a home crowd and stadium gets ready for a game.
