COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Iowa's first drive didn't result in points, but James Vandenberg doesn't look rattled in his first career start.

Vandenberg went 4-for-4 on the Hawkeyes' first possession, including a 12-yard post pass to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos. He showed decent mobility in the pocket and received good protection from the offensive line. Iowa was able to pin Ohio State deep.

The bad news is Iowa's run game is going nowhere, despite Adam Robinson's return to the starting lineup. I can't believe Robinson is playing running back just three weeks after a high ankle sprain.
