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.
