IOWA CITY, Iowa -- After generating just three rush yards in the first half, Iowa knew exactly what it needed to do coming out of the locker room.
The Hawkeyes finally established their run game on an impressive scoring drive to open the second half. Redshirt freshman Adam Robinson set the tone with a 19-yard gain on the second play and added rushes of 15 and six yards. Though the drive stalled after quarterback Ricky Stanzi misfired on two passes, Iowa showed it can move the ball on the ground. Robinson had just four yards on two carries in the first half as Iowa went mainly with true freshman Brandon Wegher.
With Stanzi's unpredictability, the run game will loom large for Iowa down the stretch.
