|#18 Iowa Trounces Ball St.
|IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Ricky Stanzi threw for 288 yards and three touchdowns and No. 18 Iowa bounced back from last week's loss at Arizona by trouncing Ball State 45-0 on Saturday.
Adam Robinson added 115 yards rushing and a pair of TDs for the Hawkeyes (3-1), who quickly overwhelmed the Cardinals on a soggy afternoon at Kinnick Stadium. Stanzi threw touchdown passes of 8 and 22 yards in the second quarter to put Iowa ahead 21-0 at halftime.
Robinson scored from 1 yard out early in the second half, and Stanzi's 45-yard TD pass to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos gave the Hawkeyes a 35-0 lead late in the third quarter.
Johnson-Koulianos had two touchdown receptions for Iowa.
The Hawkeyes had 562 yards of offense to just 112 for Ball State (1-3), which was shut out for the first time since 2005.
