AMES, IOWA (AP) – Jack Campbell returned a fumble 6 yards for a touchdown and No. 10 Iowa ran its winning streak against No. 9 Iowa State to six games with a 27-17 victory that ruined the biggest home game in Cyclones history.
In the first Cy-Hawk game matching ranked teams, the Hawkeyes were not about to play the foil for Iowa State’s feel-good story. Iowa turned four takeaways into 20 points, ran its overall winning streak to eight games and its winning streak against ranked teams to five. Iowa has not won that many in a row against ranked opponents since 1960.
Iowa improves to 2-0 while Iowa State holds a 1-1 record heading into the third week of college football play. The Cyclones travel to UNLV next Saturday for their second non-conference matchup and Hawkeyes head back to Iowa City to host non-conference opponent Kent State.
