24 fourth quarter points power Hawkeyes

James Vandenberg threw two touchdowns and Marvin McNutt hit a receiving milestone as Iowa took down Northwestern 41-31.

The Hawks looked like they might run away with this one when Vandenberg hit Keenan Davis on his first TD strike for a 17 point second quarter lead.  Northwestern, however, responded scoring 17 unanswered to tie the game in the third quarter.

Iowa countered with 24 points in the 4th quarter.  That included a 48 yard strike from Vandenberg to McNutt.  The touchdown reception was the 21st of McNutt's career tying him with Danan Hughes for the all-time TD reception mark.

The Hawks picked up their first conference win on the season, they'll look to make it 2 in a row next week when they host Indiana.
