Iowa’s pick-six-only offense was letting the Hawkeyes hang around Wisconsin, with two Josh Jackson interceptions making up the only points Iowa was able to score through the first 34 minutes. Then this happened.
Iowa QB Nate Stanley and center James Daniels had a miscommunication, and it resulted in an unexpected snap bouncing off Stanley before he could realize what was happening. Wisconsin was able to recover the fumble and take it back for a score, making it a 24-14 game.

This play could really hurt the Hawkeyes, who had been able to muster exactly 20 yards of offense before the miscue. The Hawkeyes now have to make up a 10-point deficit against a team that excels at running the ball. Iowa can’t just rely on another return touchdown to get back in this one. The Hawkeyes will likely need to muster the strength to make multiple drives down the field, and that’ll be extremely hard to do.
