Impressive response from Iowa vs. ISU

This is exactly what Iowa needed after a rough few weeks.

Despite a few early speed bumps, the Hawkeyes are in control at Iowa State, a place where they have struggled in recent years. Ricky Stanzi has rebounded from two interceptions to throw three touchdowns, and the running game is showing some life with several backs, including true freshman Brandon Wegher. The Iowa defense has kept Iowa State out of the end zone and picked off Austen Arnaud four times.

Clearly, the Big Ten's top playmaking secondary is back in good form.

A very complete performance by the Hawkeyes after surviving against Northern Iowa last week.
