Iowa beats Wyoming in season opener, 24-3

Wyoming vs. Nebraska Football

The Hawkeyes got off to a slow start on Saturday, but finished strong, beating wyoming 24-3.

Late in the second quarter, UW forced a turnover and had the ball at Iowa's 43-yard line.

The Hawkeyes capitalized quickly when quarterback Nathan Stanley threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Noah Fant on the first play of the resulting possession.

Allen and the University of Wyoming offense had a much different look during a 24-3 loss at Iowa in front of 68,075 at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday - and it wasn't a good look.

"There were some good things that we did out there, but right now it doesn't feel too good", Bohl said.

In addition to completing 56 percent of his passes and throwing for 3,203 yards, 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, Allen rushed for 523 yards and another seven touchdowns.

The Pokes defense was aggressive in the opening quarter recording two turnovers in the frame.

"I think if anything had a chance to really turn the game, that sequence of plays turned the game", Bohl said. That game was also Wyoming's last game with fewer than 300 total yards of offense.

Saturday, though, was a struggle from the start to get the passing game rolling.

"This wasn't the outcome we wanted, but we'll grow from it and we'll be better", Allen said. Rico Gafford came up big with a one handed interception. Iowa had been driving near midfield when Carl Granderson forced a fumble that Sidney Malauulu recovered.

Stanley hit Nick Easley for his third scoring toss of the day and Miguel Recinos tacked on a field goal for the final score. Wyoming took over with 50 seconds left in the half, but its drive was killed by a blatant intentional grounding on Allen's part. Iowa lead 14-3 at the half.
