Ricky Stanzi was about as bad as anyone could possibly be for the first 3 quarters of the football game, and ended up throwing 5 interceptions. Somehow, though, Iowa managed to overcome Stanzi's terrible play and stay in the game until the end. They broke out for 28 points in the 4th quarter to not only seal the victory, but miraculously cover the 17.5-point spread.

There were definitely some questionable calls by the referees. And by questionable, I mean they literally took away 2 touchdowns from Indiana. On one of them, the Hoosiers scored on the bext play, so it didn't matter on the scoreboard, but I'm sure it was discouraging for them to know that they were battling the refs, as well.

Iowa will probably maintain their #4 spot in the country, but if you think they'll stay there through the end of the year, don't hold your breath. This team seems to play with fire every week. At some point, theyll catch a loss.
