LIVE: Rudock’s touchdown scramble puts Iowa up 7-0 after one

IOWA CITY — Two weeks down, and two times for Jake Rudock to use his legs to get him to the end zone in his Hawkeye career.

The sophomore quarterback, who rushed for one of two touchdowns he helped the Hawkeyes produce last week in his first ever college start against Northern Illinois, ran for his second score in his second career start. Rudock scored on a six-yard dash after reversing his field to the right to complete an 11-play, 69-yard drive to put Iowa up 7-0 after the first quarter against FCS opponent Missouri State Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.

The Hawkeyes finished the opening 15 minutes, not surprisingly, with a one-sided edge on the statistical side of the contest against the Bears. Iowa outgained Missouri State in total yardage 120-19 in the first quarter, but ended the fourth quarter being forced to punt for the second time in three possessions after being stopped on Missouri State’s 39-yard line.

The Bears showed flashes of making the game even more interesting early on. Quarterback Kierra Harris hit just two of nine passes in the opening quarter, but had several passes deflect off the hands of his receivers including a deep pass to Eric Christophal that would have gone for an opening-drive touchdown had the sophomore receiver hauled it in.
