We will move forward from it. Maybe that was expected as they played against what likely was the best defensive front seven they will face this season.
The Hawkeyes turned the ball over four times, but the linebacking trio of Josey Jewell, Ben Niemann and Bo Bower all had double-digit tackles.
Wyoming also failed to capitalize on a solid performance from its defense. In addition to Granderson's forced fumble, Iowa native Rico Gafford intercepted a pass, Marcus Epps forced a fumble that Cassh Maluia recovered, and Kevin Prosser forced and recovered a fumble.
"Defenses are going to play better; they're going to execute and game plan better, too", Allen said.
"This wasn't the outcome we wanted, but we'll grow from it and we'll be better", Allen said.
The Cowboys opened the scoring with a career long 49-yard field from sophomore Cooper Rothe at the 11:21 mark of the second quarter. Wyoming was on the 36-yard-line and punting away to the Hawkeyes.
The awful play took place at the end of the second quarter Saturday at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. Given excellent field position with the botched punt, Iowa took the generous gift and scored a touchdown two plays later on a 27-yard pass from Nate Stanley to Noah Fant. Here is to hoping, for his sake, the first-half against Iowa isn't the exception to the Allen rule and not the rule of foot - I mean, thumb. Junior Kevin Prosser striped Stanley in the backfield, and then jumped on the loose ball. On the first play, Allen was sacked and called for intentional grounding. James Butler added 47 yards on the ground.
The Hawkeyes staved the prospective No. 1 draft pick Josh Allen off in a 24-3 win over Wyoming in Kinnick on Saturday. Rather than going into halftime behind 7-3 on the road in a Big Ten stadium, Wyoming went into the locker room with a 14-3 deficit.
Stanley threw for 125 yards and three touchdowns.
