The Iowa Hawkeyes obliterated Western Michigan on Saturday in Kinnick Stadium, a rout that was sparked by back to back punt returns for touchdowns by Kevonte Martin-Manley.
He’s the first player in the Big Ten to do that since Garcia Lane of Ohio State in 1983 and just the third in league history. It was that kind of day for Iowa when most things went right during the final three quarters of the game.
Senior cornerback BJ Lowery returned two interceptions for touchdowns, Jake Rudock threw two interceptions and a backup quarterback not only played, but looked good in the win calling his own number on several zone reads and showing why people love his arm and upside.

Iowa football rarely has been easy on the nerves during Kirk Ferentz's 15-year run. This season is shaping up to be much of the same. The key to survival is exhibiting patience and enjoying the ride.
The Iowa Hawkeyes have finished their non-conference portion of the season at 3-1. I think that’s a number a lot of fans and prognosticators believed this team would be sitting on through four games.
That said, how they have gotten there and what they have shown may be different than what some expected. I’ll take a look at each of Iowa’s remaining eight opponents, list...
