  • Jake Rudock threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns as Iowa hung on to beat Northern Iowa 31-23 Saturday afternoon in Iowa City.

    Kevonte Martin-Manley added eight catches for the Hawkeyes (1-0), who survived despite allowing 203 yards receiving to Panthers running back David Johnson.

    Iowa moved ahead by eight with 6:50 left on a 12-yard touchdown pass from Rudock to Damond Powell. Greg Mabin's late interception sealed the win for the Hawkeyes.

    Sawyer Kollmorgen had 380 yards passing for the Panthers (0-1), who fell to 1-16 against the rival Hawkeyes.

    Iowa opened the second half with a slim 17-13 lead and in need of a boost when Tevaun Smith took a reverse to the left sideline and cut back across the field, avoiding a slew of charging Panthers for a 35-yard gain. He then caught a Rudock pass in the back of the end zone with one hand to put Iowa ahead 24-13.
