My Player of the Game
Adam Korsak
Game Notes
It's always bad when your punter gets the MVP award, but Korsak really was the best player on the Rutgers team. He punted 10 times for a booming 47 yard average. He pinned Iowa back inside their 10 yard line numerous times, although Rutgers was not able to maintain the momentum and hold them. The Rutgers offense was terrible. They were putrid passing the ball and could not get much going in the running game either. The defense was not as bad, but costly penalties killed them even when they were making a stand. This was another futile Rutgers game against a ranked Big Ten opponent.
Player Grades
Player
Pos
Grade
Adam Korsak (94)
A+ 
There is not much more you can ask for from a punter! He punted a lot, for distance, for placement, etc.
Artur Sitkowski (8)
QB 
Not much improvement with Sitkowski at the helm.
Bo Melton (18)
WR 
Only one catch for what might have been Rutgers biggest play!
Isaih Pacheco (1)
RB 
C+ 
Pacheco is Rutgers' most exciting player and they needed to get him the ball more. While his numbers were not overwhelming either, he needed more touches.
McLane Carter (3)
QB 
supposedly hurt at the end of the 1st half, he really was not able to manufacture much at all anyway. Only 5/15 passing.
Raheem Blackshear (2)
RB
