Iowa playing Jump Around was an obvious troll to Wisconsin, who plays the song in every home game at the start of every 4th quarter. Unfortunately for the Badgers, the game against the Hawkeyes was played away from Madison this time around.
The offense of Iowa only accumulated 146 total yards as the Hawkeyes were 6-of-19 in 3rd down conversions. The star of the game was the Hawkeyes’ defense. That unit held Wisconsin to 227 total yards and forced the Badgers to turn the ball over three times.
Cornerback Cooper DeJean accounted for his second pick-6 in his collegiate career. DeJean picked off Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz for a 32-yard return to put Iowa up 14-3 with 1:58 left in the second quarter.
Iowa redeems itself after last season’s 27-7 road loss to Wisconsin. Iowa’s win over Wisconsin has tightened the all-time matchup 49-45-2 with Wisconsin leading the series.
