End of the 1st qtr. UNI has a 3rd and 8 from their own 20 on this current drive.
I would like to congradulate Sacramento State on defeating BCS Oregon State 29-28. It is a game I was listening to on Sirus radio coming over to Ames. They lead 21-6 and won in OT.
Jantz throws his second interception and stops the Cyclone scoring drive. JJ Swain picks up this INT for UNI. It is 1st & 10 at their own 4. We ahve 1:54 left in the 1st qtr.
ISU has a 3rd & 2 at the UNI 17. QB Jantz keeper gets the first down to the 12.
ISU gets the aid of three penalities on the same play--two personal fouls and an offsides to set them up a the UNI 25.
After a nice 16 yard pickup by Rennie, UNI's drive stalls at their own 27. The punt puts ISU at 1st & 10 at their own 40.
Jarrett Scott picks off ISU qb Steele Jantz's pass. He returned it to the ISU 28 but a personal foul call on the Panthers sets them up at their own 14 to start this drive. We have 6:43 left in the opening qtr.
UNI gets one first down but then stalls. A poor punt sets ISU up well--starting on their own 49 yard line. 7:51 left in the 1st qtr.
Iowa State goes three and out and their punt goes into the end zone. UNI will start the next drive at their 20 yard line. We have 10:44 left in the opening qtr.
UNI goes 7 plays on the opening drive and gets a 42 yard field goal from Tyler Sievertsen to put the Panthers up 3 - 0 with 12:09 left in the 1st qtr.
UNI won the toss and will recieve the opening kickoff.
I heard on the drive over from Iowa City to Ames that the Golden Eagles scored but the final was 34-7.
Well, I am going to head out now. I hope for a more competative game tonight with UNI and Iowa State. From the weather radar, it does not appear this game will be restarted any time soon.
Ironically, Tennessee Tech's season opener against DII Lane College had a weather delay similar to this game as the game was called after 25 minutes of play. The game counted as a win for the Golden Eagles since they were in the lead at the time but all statistics from the game did not count.
At this time, we have 3:37 left in the 3rd qtr with Iowa leading 34 - 0. I will probably wait for the weather to lighten up and then head for Ames as this game is pretty much over at this point.
The weather is getting bad and the game has been delayed for 30 minutes. I probably will have to leave early to this one in order to get to Ames.
The rain is really coming down. TTU gets just a 7 yard punt into the wind from Nick Campbell. There is 4:13 left in the third qtr and there is a huge down pour coming in sheets right now as Iowa takes over.
Sounds a little sloppy and error-prone.
TTU gets a roughing the passer call and two plays later, McNutt catches his second score of the game. Iowa 34 TTU 0 with 6:19 left.
The rain is coming down hard again after letting up for a while. Iowa is driving now and is down to the TTU 36. We have 7:08 left in the 3rd qtr.
TTU can't complete the 3rd down pass and had a 33 yard field goal attempt by Matthew Barker go wide right to keep the Golden Eagles scoreless.
Iowa takes over at the 20 yard line with just over 10:00 left in the third qtr.
