Cyclones top Iowa in low scoring Cy-Hawk affair

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

It wasn't easy, and it wasn't pretty, but the Iowa State Cyclones got the job done defeating Iowa 9-6 to maintain control of the Cy-Hawk trophy.

This one wasn't decided until the final minutes.  Cyclone linebacker Jake Knott tipped and picked off a James Vandenberg pass to seal it with Iowa driving late.

ISU's Steele Jantz threw for 241 yards and the games only touchdown which came on Iowa State's first drive of the game.  The Hawkeye responded on their first chance as well, driving deep into Iowa State territory.  Iowa would have to settle for a Mike Meyer field goal as they trailed by 3 at the end of the first.  Iowa State responded with 3 points from Edwin Arceo to hold a 6 point lead at the half.

The Cyclones and Hawkeyes both missed out on big opportunities.  Iowa receiver Keenan Davis appeared to score a go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, but a booth review would show that he stepped out at the 3 yard line.  Iowa State's defense held as Iowa only managed a field goal to pull within 3.

Iowa State, meanwhile, committed 3 turnovers inside of the Iowa ten yard line that could've put the game out of reach.

The win is the second straight for ISU in the series.  Cyclone coach Paul Rhoads is 2-2 all-time against Iowa.
