  • The Hawkeyes answered Ohio State's Saine's touchdown quickly as Derrell Johnson-Koulianos returned the ensuing kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown.

    DJKs 99-yarder at Ohio State ended a streak of 242 kick returns without a TD.

    Then, after Barclay missed a 47-yard field goal, freshman quarterback James Vandenberg took Iowa on a 70-yard march that ended with a game-tying 10-yard scoring pass to Marvin McNutt with 2:42 remaining.

    Ohio State then ran five plays and punted it back to the Hawkeyes, who opted to run out the final 52 seconds and play for overtime.

    Iowa had the ball first in the overtime, but Adam Robinson lost 6 yards on second down and Vandenberg was sacked for a loss of 10 by Doug Worthington on third down. The freshman quarterback threw a Hail Mary pass into the end zone that was intercepted on fourth down.

    "At that point we were thinking if they can do it, we can do it," Angerer said.
