Iowa Hawkeyes fall to 4th-ranked Ohio State

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (KWWL) -

The Iowa Hawkeyes were looking for an upset when they went up against 4th-ranked Ohio State. While the Hawks stayed in the game and even led in the first half, they weren't able to pull off a win, losing 34-24.

Iowa was the first to strike in Columbus with a touchdown pass to C.J. Fiedorowicz early in the game.

The Hawkeye defensive line managed to hold the Buckeyes to only three points in the first quarter. Drew Basil was the first to put up any points for Ohio State with a 27-yard field goal.

Just a few minutes later, a targeting penalty against OSU's first-team All-American cornerback, Bradley Roby, caused him to be ejected from the remainder of the game.

A field goal kick by Iowa's Mike Meyer and a 58-yard Buckeye touchdown pass to Philly Brown, tied the game up at 10-10 early in the second quarter.

But Iowa refused to give up the game.

Jake Rudock completed a pass to Kevonte Martin-Manley for a 6-yard touchdown for the Hawks who managed to hold the Buckeyes to a score of 17-10 until the half.

The Buckeyes quickly tied the game up for the second time early in the third quarter with a one-yard rushing touchdown by Carlos Hyde.

Using that momentum to their advantage, the Buckeyes scored another touchdown shortly after, pulling ahead of the Hawkeyes for the first time in the game.

But an 85-yard reception touchdown by Jake Duzey quickly put Iowa back in the game.

But the fourth quarter shut down any hope for a Hawkeye win.

The Buckeyes pulled ahead early in the quarter with a second touchdown by Carlos Hyde, this time a 19-yard rushing score.

A 25-yard field goal kick by Drew Basil widened that gap to a ten point Buckeye lead. But the real killer for the Hawks was a turnover by Jake Rudock with less than five minutes left in the game.

The Hawkeyes were unable to make any substantial plays in the final quarter and they ultimately lost to the Buckeyes by a final score of 34-24.
