Iowa beats Wyoming in season opener, 24-3

The 2016 campaign was Allen's first as Wyoming's starting quarterback, as he replaced Cameron Coffman the season prior before getting hurt, and it was an eye-opener. They bring back a host of starters from last year's unit, which ranked 13th nationally in scoring defense (18.8 points allowed per game) and held MI and Nebraska to just 23 combined points in home wins to close out 2016. "There were some bumps in the road, but that traces back to younger, more inexperienced players". "That's how guys like that help the whole team elevate their play, and that's priceless".

Josh Jackson had Iowa's first interception of the season and the first of his career early in the fourth quarter to shift momentum that Wyoming seemed to be picking up. Had it not been for them, the linebackers would not have been able to get out in space as often as they did against Wyoming.

Also Wyoming was stopped three times on short yardage, including a 4th and 1 play from inside Iowa territory. He had a long punt of 42 yards.

"I spent a lot of time there at our Friday scrimmage (on August 18) just to get used to it in game conditions, " Render said. "We tried. We knew their front seven would be very formidable, as they were".

The sophomore, who finished 8 of 15 for 125 yards and three touchdowns, struggled to hang on to the ball.

Given the preseason expectations, it should come as no surprise that multiple National Football League teams have sent scouts to Iowa City to watch Allen and the Cowboys open their 2017 season against Iowa. He did make the majority, though. "I'm a little upset with some stuff that went on with ball security". Maybe Zaleski's Cowboys teammates can pick him up a bit in the second half. Iowa had just two drives of more than 40 yards and only 263 total yards of offense.

But the 6-foot-5 Allen is a darling of the mock drafts for a reason, and Iowa will be without suspended cornerback Manny Rugamba.

The Cowboys were just 101st nationally in scoring defense in 2016 after allowing 34.1 points a game.

If the first game was any indication, Iowa plans to use Wadley as often as it can.

With only 59 yards allowed on the ground, Allen was forced to throw the ball downfield, which got him into trouble a couple of times.

Iowa is expecting a lot out of Easley, a junior college transfer, and he showed why in the opener. Stanley's third was a 45-yarder to Nick Easley. Easley finished with 77 yards on four catches. But it was pretty much all downhill from there for Wyoming's special teams. The score gave Iowa it's first lead of the game at 7-3.

"He can throw the ball down the middle, he can throw it outside really well, he can pull it down and run", Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said of Allen.

The Hawks will face in-state rival Iowa State next Saturday, Sept. 9, in Ames. On Saturday, Wyoming caused four takeaways, including three fumbles.
