Ohio State-Iowa Post-Game Thoughts: Buckeyes Escape With 20-17 Victory Over Hawkeyes

I must admit that I really thought Iowa might come out flat and Ohio State would play inspired early and often offensively. I predicted OSU would win 41-20. I'm glad I was wrong.

This game was exciting and great to watch!

My hat is off to Iowa. They played a heck of a game today!

The play of the game that more or less clinched the victory for the Buckeyes was when Cameron Heyward crushed Iowa QB Ricky Stanzi on 3rd and long, forcing a 4th and 21 situation. Iowa then came up two yards short and the Buckeyes eked out a close, hard-fought win!

Heyward picked a perfect time to get the most important QB sack in his Buckeyes career.

DeVier Posey, who dropped a wide-open TD pass with about 3:30 to go in the game better treat Terrelle Pryor, Dane Sanzenbacher, Boom Herron, and Cameron Heyward all to a nice fat all-expenses paid steak dinner!

Despite not playing great at times, Pryor ended the game with 273 total yards and a touchdown.

Herron added 69 rush yards and the game winning touchdown run with under two minutes left in the game.

Sanzenbacher caught six balls for 102 yards to lead all OSU receivers, and Heyward's heroics were mentioned, and pictured, above.

I again wish to salute the Hawkeyes on a great effort and just add that I'm glad the Buckeyes showed some heart and pride and fought back for the win.

Now it's officially time to start scUm HATE WEEK!
