Northwestern vs. Iowa score: Wildcats lead 7-3 after one quarter

With both teams still fighting to keep themselves alive in the Big Ten title race, Northwestern leads Iowa 7-3 after one quarter in Evanston.

The Wildcats started out the scoring on a successful opening possession. Quarterback Kain Culter carried the ball five times for 43 yards, finishing it with a five-yard touchdown run.

Still, Iowa quickly battled back, and quickly proved that they’re not ready to let history repeat itself, in a series where they’ve lost five of their last seven games to the Wildcats.

On their opening drive, Iowa was able to put their first points of the game on the board, thanks to a Mike Meyer 40-yard field goal. The series capped an efficient drive for Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg, who completed all five passes, to five different receivers.

The other big news for Iowa is that fullback Mark Weisman has looked sharp so far. The Hawkeyes' leading rusher injured his ankle two weeks ago against Michigan State, and was limited to just nine yards on five carries last week. This week he’s already rushed eight times for 20 yards.
