Recap: Iowa vs. Western Mich

Iowa City, IA (Sports Network) - Defense and special teams shined for the Iowa Hawkeyes on a record-setting afternoon, as they made easy work of the Western Michigan Broncos, 59-3, in non-conference action at Kinnick Stadium.

The Hawkeyes (3-1) had their highest-scoring contest since putting up 62 points on Northwestern in November of 2002. Kevonte Martin-Manley became the first player in school history to have two punt returns for touchdowns in the same game. B.J. Lowery also accomplished a program first by running back a pair of interceptions for touchdowns.

Jake Rudock only needed to attempt 15 passes for Iowa, but he completed 10 of those for 134 yards and two scores. The squad rushed for 258 yards, with Jordan Canzeri leading the way with 73 yards and a touchdown.

Tyler Van Tubbergen struggled under center for WMU (0-4), going 14-of-32 for 114 yards with two interception. Zach Terrell also saw time at quarterback but didn't fare any better (2-of-6, 21 yards, INT). Brian Fields had 20 touches for 115 total yards (58 rushing, 57 receiving).

The game was relatively quiet in the early going, with Mike Meyer's 20-yard field goal the only source of points in the first 13 minutes of action. Rudock accounted for the matchup's first touchdown when he hooked up with Jacob Hillyer on a 21-yard scoring strike with 1:54 remaining in the first quarter.

At the 11:45 mark of the second quarter, Martin-Manley returned a punt 83 yards for a touchdown. Less than a minute later, following a WMU three-and- out, he returned another punt to the house, this time from 63 yards out. He's the first player since Oregon's Cliff Harris in 2010 to have two punt return TDs in the same quarter.

WMU finally scored with under five minutes remaining in the first half on an Andrew Haldeman 23-yard field goal, but Iowa would add two more touchdowns before halftime. Mark Weisman ran in a four-yard touchdown, which was quickly followed by a 35-yard interception return for a score by Lowery.

Lowery added his second pick-six early in the third quarter, returning a Terrell interception 13 yards for a score. Rudock added another touchdown pass later in the quarter, a 29-yarder to Damond Powell.

The rout continued early in the fourth quarter as Canzeri rushed in a 16-yard score to give the Hawkeyes 35 unanswered points to end the game.

Iowa outgained WMU in total yardage, 446-209, and held a 12-minute advantage in time of possession.
