The Iowa Hawkeyes hosted the Illinois State Redbirds on Saturday. This game on paper was a miss match as the D2 school lacked the talent to hang with the Hawkeyes. However the Redbirds fought all game and tried to make it respectable. QB C.J Beathard made his first start for the Hawkeyes and threw for 211 yards, and a touchdown. The Hawkeyes took a 17-0 lead into halftime and would easily roll onto victory as they made sure to keep the Rebirds at bay.
