Big return by Burton on the kickoff out to the Bear 40 but there is a flag on the play. The flag is on Iowa for a low block. The 15 yards will be added to the end of the run to set up the Bears in Iowa territory for the firs time today.
The Bear defense has been playing well but needs some help from their offensive teammates. The Bears will need to mount some time off the clock to keep the defense off the field on this upcoming drive and to keep this game as close.
I think the Bears will need to get a score here but the Iowa defense has been very stingy.
