Ohio State Steamrolls Iowa Maintaining Dominance In Big Ten

By Garin Turner

The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes moved to 7-0 on the season (4-0 Big Ten) defeating the Iowa Hawkeyes (3-4, 1-3 Big Ten) 54-10. Buckeye QB C.J. Stroud had another huge game going 20/30 for 286 yards and four touchdowns. 

The Buckeyes trailed briefly in the game. After an interception that lead to a Buckeye field goal, Stroud got hit on a sack and lost the ball. Joe Evans would scoop it up and score on a 11-yardreturn giving Iowa a 7-3 lead. 

Ohio State controlled the rest of the game. On the next drive, they went ten plays and 75 yards, scoring on a Miyan Williams two-yard run. After two more Buckeye field goals, they lead 16-7 at the end of the first quarter. 

Iowa would kick a field goal of their own, but that would be as close as it would get at 16-10. The Buckeyes would go on to score 38 unanswered points. Tommy Eichenberg had a 15-yardpick six late in the second quarter for Ohio State. 

In the third, Marvin Harrison Jr. scored on a six-yard pass from Stroud. Stroud’s second TD came on a 13-yard pass to Emeka Egbuka. 

The fourth would see two more touchdowns when Stroud connected with Julian Fleming for a 79 yarder early in the quarter. The final touchdown came on a three-yard pass to Mitch Rossi. 

The Buckeyes defense held Iowa to just 158 total yards. Iowa has had problems all year on offense and Ohio State took advantage. Iowa was just 1-13 on third downs and 1-4 on fourth down. The Buckeyes also forced six turnovers, three fumbles and three interceptions. They also recorded five sacks.
