Iowa squeaks by Pitt on long last second field goal, 27-24

logo_iowa_hawkeyesIOWA CITY – For the first time since 2009, the Iowa Hawkeye football team is 3-0 to open the season, thanks to a last-second field goal from long distance.

Marshall Koehn kicked a 57-yard game-winning field goal to send Iowa to a victory over the Pitt Panthers, 27-24 Saturday night in Kinnick Stadium. The field goal is a career long, the second longest in school history, and ties the Kinnick Stadium record (57, Lee Pistor, Arizona, 9/24/77). Koehn was 2-for-2 on field goals (43, 57) and 3-for-3 on PATs. He has 98 career points. He has made seven straight field goal attempts, and 15 of his last 16. He is 7-for-8 in his career on attempts 40 yards or longer. Koehn also punted for the first time in his career. He had one punt for 64 yards. Four of his five kickoffs were touchbacks.

Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard ran for a 9 yard touchdown in the first quarter of the game. Desmond King had interceptions on Pitt’s first two possessions. It was his second and third interceptions of the season, and the fifth and sixth of his career. He is the first Hawkeye with two interceptions in a game since John Lowdermilk at Purdue in 2014.

Pitt drops to 2-1 on the season.

Iowa is now 3-0 on the season and faces North Texas next week.
