  • Jake Rudock and Mark Weisman each ran for a pair of touchdowns as Iowa beat Missouri State 28-14 Saturday afternoon in Iowa City, snapping a seven-game losing streak dating back to 2012.

    Weisman had 180 yards rushing for the Hawkeyes (1-1), who prevailed despite a somewhat shaky performance against an FCS opponent.

    Weisman scored on runs of 10 and 3 yards to help the Hawkeyes take a 21-0 lead late in the third quarter. Missouri State answered with touchdowns on back-to-back plays from scrimmage early in the fourth quarter, pulling to within 21-14 with 14:15 to go.

    Rudock's 2-yard TD run put Iowa back ahead 28-14 and Tanner Miller sealed it with an interception in the end zone with 6:50 left.

    Kierra Harris threw for 127 yards and a touchdown for Missouri State (0-2).
