LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) With a 42-point second half, Iowa did its part to put the finishing touches on the worst football season at Nebraska in six decades.
Akrum Wadley ran for 159 yards and three touchdowns and Iowa scored 28 points in less than a 7-minute span over the halves on its way to a 56-14 win Friday in what could have been coach Mike Riley's last game with the Cornhuskers.
"It just kind of happened," Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz said of the second-half outburst. "It wasn't like it a master plan or design. The first part was playing through the bumps we created. We were even at half. We felt like if we could play clean football in the second half, something could happen."
