Hawkeyes totally in command
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa's rallies have transpired in different ways this season, but few saw this one coming.
After looking lifeless in the first half and falling behind 24-14 at the end of the third quarter, the Hawkeyes have stormed back to take control. Iowa now leads 35-24 as things are totally falling apart for Indiana. What a strange game for the Hoosiers secondary, which picked off four passes but endured several inexcusable breakdowns that led to Iowa touchdowns.
Iowa rediscovered its rushing attack on its last drive, as freshman Brandon Wegher ran to paydirt.
Credit Iowa once again for fighting back -- this marks its eighth come-from-behind win this season -- though the Hawks will take a hit in the polls.
