IOWA CITY – Another ranked team goes down at Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa crushed #6 Ohio State 55-24, one of the most lopsided losses in Urban Meyer’s career.

Nate Stanley looked like the Heisman candidate, not JT Barrett.  Stanley threw for 226 yards and 5 TD’s.  Akrum Wadley rushed for 118 yards.

Iowa led 31-17 at the half and kept the foot on the gas all 2nd half.  Josh Jackson, an All-American candidate, picked off Barrett 3 times.  Amani Hooker also provided a pick 6 interception of Barrett on the opening play of the game.

Iowa was a 20 point underdog entering the game.

Iowa improves to 6-3 overall, 3-3 in the Big 10.  Next week the Hawks hit the road to take on #9 Wisconsin.

ZION, Ill. – Illinois police officers responded to a very unique call Friday morning.

A raccoon, who Zion police believe “has been eating a little too well,” got caught in a sewer grate.

Animal Control officer R. Knorr and Zion Police Officer K. Vaugh were unable to remove him and had to request help “from the real heroes over at the Zion Public Works Department.” They were able to free the raccoon and he was not injured.

Zion police posted photos of the rescue to their Facebook page, adding that Officer Vaughn was more scared of the raccoon that it was of him. Good work guys!
