Iowa leads Northwestern 10-0

       Was this possibly the worst way for Northwestern and

quarterback Dan Persa to start a game? Maybe.


Northwestern driving at the Iowa eight-yard line in the first quarter, Persa

dropped back to pass and was looking for a receiver in the end zone. He alluded

a tackle, but couldn’t wiggle free from a second one and ended up throwing an

interception to Hawkeye free safety Tanner Miller — who promptly ran it down

the home sideline for a 98-yard touchdown. Miller’s touchdown ties the longest

interception return in Iowa history.


not only did the Hawkeyes go up 10-0 with 4:08 to play in the first quarter,

but Persa limped off the field. He did return on the Wildcats’ next series, but

continued to platoon with backup Kain Colter.


has been on the field constantly during the Wildcats’ offensive series, where

he has split time between receiver and quarterback.
