Cooper DeJean is showing he has a nose for creating havoc with Iowa’s defense. He also found the end zone once again in 2022, this time off another pick-6.

Facing Wisconsin in the battle for the Heartland Trophy, DeJean burned the Badgers and QB Graham Mertz in the second quarter. Mertz’s throw was slightly behind his man with DeJean working back to jump the route and house his interception.

The score gave Iowa a 14-3 over Wisconsin in the second quarter. Unfortunately, the Badgers would battle back with Mertz finding a wide-open Keontez Lewis for a big touchdown just before the half.

At the break, it’s 14-10 with the Hawkeyes up in Kinnick Stadium. To no surprise, the Hawkeye defense and special teams have provided the sparks with Iowa also blocking a punt in the first half.
