IOWA CITY - The Hawkeyes didn't get off to the start they were hoping for, but the end result is what matters.
Iowa led NIU just 3-0 at half, but then poured it on in the 2nd half en-route to a 33-7 win.
The defense was dominant sacking NIU 5 times.
The win gives Head Coach Kirk Ferentz his 144th in Hawkeye history. Ferentz is now the all-time winningest coach, passing Hayden Fry.
Up next, Iowa State.
