The Iowa Hawkeyes suffered their first loss of the college football season in a Big Ten slugfest against Michigan on Saturday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Final score: No. 19 Michigan (4-1, 1-1) 10, No. 14 Iowa (4-1, 1-1) 3
The Hawkeyes managed only 261 yards of offense, turned it over four times, allowed eight sacks and committed eight penalties.
Neither team scored in the final 42 minutes of the game.
Iowa had trouble with Michigan's pressure all day. Quarterback Nate Stanley was 23 of 42 for 260 yards and three picks. The Hawkeyes totaled 1 yard rushing. Of Michigan's eight sacks, Kwity Paye had 2.5 and Jordan Glasgow two.
Iowa reached the 25 on a 31-yard Nate Stanley pass to Tyler Goodson in the fourth quarter, but back-to-back holding penalties derailed the Hawkeyes' penultimate drive.
Iowa's got one final chance, starting at its 43 with 1:35 to go. Stanley converted a fourth-and-8 with a 11-yard strike to Nico Ragaini, but then fired three straight incomplete passes, then avoided a sack with a desperate heave to Tyler Goodson, who could not reach the mark to gain — or the line of scrimmage.
Michigan wasn't much better, gaining 267 yards and scoring just 3 points off its takeaways. Geno Stone had an interception for Iowa.
Mekhi Sargent fumbled on Iowa's first play from scrimmage, leading to a Jake Moody field goal to give Michigan the lead. The Wolverines scored the only TD of the game later in the first quarter on Zach Charbonnet's 2-yard run, completing a six-play, 70-yard drive.
Iowa's only points came from a Keith Duncan field goal.
