Stanzi looking sharp for Iowa

By Heather Dinich

MIAMI, Fla. -- Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi doesn't look at all rusty after missing the last few games of the regular season with an ankle injury. If he does have any rust, Georgia Tech's defense dust it off for him on the Hawkeyes' first scoring drive.

Stanzi looks sharp, and his 54-yard pass to tight end Tony Moeaki should give the Yellow Jackets reason for concern. The play led to a three-yard touchdown pass to Marvin McNutt three plays later and gave Iowa the lead, 7-0, with 8:10 left in the first quarter. Don't forget that in the two games Georgia Tech lost this year -- to Georgia and Miami -- the Jackets' defense couldn't get off the field. If Stanzi keeps this up, they could have the same problem tonight.
