IOWA CITY (KTIV)- The Iowa Hawkeyes hosted Maryland yesterday for their homecoming.
Hawkeyes were able to shut down the Terps offense only allowing the Terps to gain 115 yards.
This is the fewest Iowa has ever allowed for a BIG TEN opponent under Head coach Kirk Ferentz.
Hawkeyes possessed the ball for nearly 40 minutes and 55 seconds.
This is the second highest time of possession for Farentz in his 20 years with the Hawkeyes.
For the entire four quarters, Hawkeyes defense only allowed the Terps to cross midfield once.
In the end, it was a Hawkeye Shutout- with the win 23-0.
“You know have the ability to run the ball and throw the ball like we were able to the last couple of weeks. But I think it shows we were ready to play and we’re a physical team and we’ll play for four quarters it doesn’t matter who we’re playing,” says Nate Stanely, Hawkeyes Quarterback.
Next week the Hawkeyes are on the road facing one of their toughest task number 17 Penn State.
