The Iowa Hawkeyes pulled off the upset of the week on Saturday. Hosting the Ohio State Buckeyes, who were fresh off a signature win against Penn State, the Hawkeyes stuck it to them.
Matching the Buckeyes stride-for-stride through the first half, they pulled away after halftime. The final score was 55-24, fueled largely by an onslaught of Ohio State turnovers that the Hawkeyes were able to turn into points.
Naturally, the state was buzzing with excitement. If by some miracle an Iowa football fan managed to avoid hearing bout the stunning result, they found out about it in a hilarious way this morning.

Brutal. 52242 is the zip code of where the Iowa Hawkeyes took the Buckeyes “out to the woodshed.”
The stunning beat down also blows the Big Ten wide open again. Had Penn State managed to win, they’d have regained footing in the conference. But after they fell to Michigan State, it’s a free-for-all heading into the final weeks of the season.
