Hawkeye Headquarters

 

Friday night was a statement game for the Hawkeyes against the Maryland Terrapins. All three phases arguably had their best games of the season in the 51-14 win.

The defense forced seven turnovers, five of them coming on interceptions off Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who came into the game as one of the top passers in the country. The offense put together its most complete showing, putting up 428 yards. Quarterback Spencer Petras led the way with 259 passing yards and 5 total touchdowns. Tyler Goodson had 151 total yards and a touchdown of his own.

The Hawkeyes jumped to No. 3 in both the AP and Coaches Poll. That sets up a huge game with No. 4 Penn State this weekend at Kinnick Stadium.

CBS Sports also now has Iowa in the CFP. Both College Football News and Action Network’s Brett McMurphy have them making the the trip to Pasadena to play Oregon in the Rose Bowl.
