After three quarters of play, Northwestern is in complete control, leading the Iowa Hawkeyes, 28-10.
For Northwestern, the difference truly has been quarterback Kain Culter. After rushing for two touchdowns in the first half, Culter has been arguably better after intermission, adding two more scores in the time since. The first came on a four-yard run (Culter’s third rushing touchdown of the afternoon) and the final one on a 47-yard pass to Christian Jones. Running back Venric Mark has added 110 yards on the ground as well.
The Hawkeyes did cut into the Northwestern lead right before the end of the third quarter however. James Vandenberg capped a 12-play, 59-yard drive with a one-yard quarterback keeper to cut into the Wildcats' lead. Running back Damon Bullock carried the bulk of the load on the drive with eight carries, and has 94 yards of total rushing on the afternoon.
Heading into the fourth quarter, it appears as though Northwestern will continue to control this series with Iowa, having won five of the last seven games between the two schools entering Saturday's game.
