Iowa Hawkeyes brave the cold to defeat Michigan

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

On the coldest day of football in Kinnick Stadium history, the Iowa Hawkeyes beat Michigan 24-21 thanks to a late field goal.

The Hawks had a rough start early in the first quarter when they gave away the first touchdown of the game with an interception.

Jake Rudock threw a pass to Michigan's Brennen Beyer who used that mistake to his advantage and ran the ball seven yards and into the end zone for a touchdown.

That was the first of several interceptions that Rudock threw during the game.

But C.J Fiedorowicz quickly made up those points for Iowa with a five-yard touchdown of his own after a completed pass from Rudock.

A second interception happened when Blake Countess picked off another pass from Rudock. Michigan used that play to get the ball into the end zone again with a two-yard pass to A.J. Williams.

The Wolverines were able to put seven more points on the board before halftime with a 9-yard pass from Devin Gardner to Jeremy Gallon.

The Hawkeyes headed into the locker room to warm up at the half, trailing 21-7.

But Iowa came back onto the field with renewed momentum.

Just minutes into the third quarter, Jake Rudock was able to complete a pass to Tevaun Smith for a 55-yard touchdown.

Mark Weisman kept that momentum going in the fourth quarter when he bulldozed into the end zone with a nine-yard rush, which tied the game up for the Hawkeyes.

Minutes later, a 34-yard field goal from Mike Meyer gave the Hawks the lead that they needed to win the game.

Iowa walked off the field with their seventh win of the season. They will play at Nebraska on Friday at 11 a.m.
