No. 17 Nebraska beats Iowa 13-7
Question of the Day
Nebraska threw just once on a 16-play drive that led to a field goal, and Iowa did the same on a 62-yard drive that led to a 1-yard plunge from Vandenberg and a 7-3 lead it held at halftime.
The Huskers muffed a punt and Martinez fumbled and nearly threw a pick in the second quarter. But Iowa’s offense, which was lackluster all season, couldn’t turn those miscues into points.
The year-long ineptitude of Iowa’s offense reached its nadir late in the first half. They were penalized for having too many men on the field — even though they were coming out of a timeout — and Mike Meyer followed with a missed field goal.
The Huskers had the wind at their backs to start the second half, allowing Brett Maher to nail a 52-yard field goal.
Nebraska finished with a 7-1 conference mark for the first time since 2001, when it posted the same mark in the Big 12.
With one more Big Ten win next weekend, Nebraska is headed to the Rose Bowl.
