Iowa’s offense finally has signs of life! In the game against Nevada, the Hawkeyes have finally woken up and have scored multiple touchdowns in the first half of action.

In the first quarter alone, Iowa generated over 100 yards of offense. For many teams, that is ordinary. For this year’s Hawkeye squad, that feels gargantuan.

A big spark for Iowa was the work of Kaleb Johnson. The true freshman running back broke through for a 40-yard touchdown, the longest play of Iowa’s season at the time of his score.

Embattled quarterback Spencer Petras also broke through in the first half of action. He delivered a strike on a beautiful deep ball for his first touchdown of the season.

In the end, some of the results still leave a lot to be desired for Iowa. 17 points are far from a true “explosion,” and Petras is still completing just 9-of-16 of his passes. But compared to the first few weeks of the season, the points are a welcome sight for all.
