The Iowa Hawkeyes roared back from down 21-6 in the most unconventional way possible to defeat the Nebraska Cornhuskers 28-21 in Lincoln. The win puts Iowa at 10-2 (7-2 Big Ten) while the Huskers continue their streak of close, but no cigar as they fall to 3-9 (1-8 Big Ten).
I’ll be honest. I’m dumbfounded. Between the continued complete incompetence on offense for the third game in a row, the absolutely awful officiating (I don’t like to complain about officiating but holy shit), the defense’s inability to stop Logan Smothers and the Nebraska option offense, and the seemingly insurmountable deficit, Iowa seemed dead in the water.
