The Iowa offense got off to a slow and rocky start on Saturday with the Hawkeyes barely squeaking past South Dakota State for a 7-3 win.

The Hawkeyes failed to score a single touchdown during the game, getting their 7 points from a single field goal and two safeties. Iowa’s defense scored more points than its offense and special teams combined, and the Hawkeyes finished the game with only 166 total yards of offense and averaged just 2.7 yards per play.

Quarterback Spencer Petras completed only 11 of 25 passes for 109 yards and an interception. On third down, Petras went 1 of 10 for 8 yards, and was unable to get a first down.

Petras was the subject of much criticism from fans and analysts alike. Head coach Kirk Ferentz ad some comments on the QB’s play

Should the offense continue to underperform, the noise inside the locker room might grow a lot louder.
