|McNutt's Reception Record Keys Iowa In 45-24
|IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Marvin McNutt caught three touchdown passes to become Iowa's career leader and Marcus Coker ran for two more scores to lead the Hawkeyes past Indiana 45-24 on Saturday.
Iowa (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten) followed up on its 41-31 victory over Northwestern a week ago with another big offensive outing, triggered by McNutt's scoring catches of 80, 24 and 29 yards from James Vandenberg, who had a career-best four TD passes in all.
That gave the senior a school-record 24 touchdown receptions for his career. He had been tied for the lead with Tim Dwight and Danan Hughes at 21.
Indiana (1-7, 0-4) lost for the fifth straight time and now has been outscored 161-61 in Big Ten play.
