  • Mathew Sims hit a 36-yard field goal with :04 left and Northern Illinois rallied to beat Iowa 30-27 Saturday afternoon in Iowa City.

    Jordan Lynch threw for 275 yards and three touchdowns for the Huskies, who scored 10 points in the final 5:05 to record their first win over the Hawkeyes.

    Northern Illinois cornerback Jimmie Ward intercepted Iowa's Jake Rudock with 1:17 left. He brought it to the Hawkeyes 30-yard line, setting up the game-winning kick from Sims.

    Rudock threw for 256 yards, a touchdown and two picks in his debut for Iowa, which lost its seventh-straight game dating back to last season. The Hawkeyes also lost their first opener since 2000.
