IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa's offensive attack faltered at times again as the Hawks never found a groove in a 38-31 loss to Northwestern.

Northwestern's Justin Jackson ran 26 times for 171 yards and a touchdown in the game. Austin Carr grabbed three scoring strikes in the win.

Trailing by 14 in the fourth quarter, Iowa kept fighting as Leshun Daniels scored on a one yard touchdown run to pull the Hawks within seven with under five minutes remaining. Iowa's final drive, however, ended in a CJ Beathard interception as the Hawkeyes fell for the second time in three games.

Iowa will look to rebound when they travel to Minnesota next week.
