Key play

With time running down in a 20-20 game, Anthony Nelson recorded Iowa’s first sack of the game, forcing Boston College’s Darius Wade to fumble a ball that Parker Hesse recovered at the Eagles’ 45-yard with 4 minutes, 22 seconds remaining. The second of the three turnovers forced by the Hawkeye defense led to Iowa’s game-deciding touchdown three plays later.

Key stat

Outgained by 183 yards, Iowa used three turnovers to even the playing field against Boston College and a slippery Yankee Stadium turf. Interceptions by Jake Gervase and Josh Jackson on both sides of a Parker Hesse fumble recovery came as the Hawkeyes played turnover-free football to earn their eighth win of the season.

Quotable

"To come home, to come up a big and win as a team, it means the world to me. There couldn’t have been a better ending for this team. It’s what we all wanted, one last win together. It’s a pretty special night." – Iowa running back Akrum Wadley
