Former Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard pulled off an 87-yard screen-pass touchdown during Sunday night’s 49ers-Vikings preseason game, thanks to a former teammate and a former Big Ten rival.
With just over a minute left in the third quarter, Beathard tossed a screen to former Purdue running back Raheem Mostert, who used a key downfield block from ex-Hawkeye tight end George Kittle (No. 85) to dash all the way to the end zone.

Beathard ended the game 7-of-13 for 159 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Mosert wound up with two catches for 104 yards and four rushes for 26 yards.
Beathard and Kittle were not the only former Hawkeyes to make a difference in Sunday’s game. Ex-Iowa kicker Marshall Koehn drilled a 58-yard field goal early in the third quarter to give Minnesota its first points.
