Iowa fullback/running back Mark Weisman dominated nearly the entire Nebraska defense en route to the Hawkeyes’ second touchdown of the game.
Weisman took the handoff out of the backfield for a run around the left side. Four Huskers defenders later he had demoralized Bo Pelini’s squad. Weisman finished his work on the very next play, capping the drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge.
The run increased the Hawkeyes’ lead, as coach Kirk Ferentz’s team entered halftime leading the Cornhuskers, 14-3, in Lincoln.
