Four plays later, Nelson hit Engel with a 23-yard touchdown pass.

The Hawkeyes marched right back down the field and looked poise to score again, but Gophers safety Brock Vereen came up with a big interception in the end zone.

But the Gophers couldn’t make the momentum last, as Nelson took another big sack on the next possession.

By game’s end, the student section had cleared and Iowa fans could be heard chanting, “Let’s go Hawks!”

The Gophers (4-1, 0-1) play at 4-0 Michigan next week.

Asked if Nelson would still be the starting quarterback moving forward, Kill said; “It’s the same thing we’ve been doing. He was our guy at the start [of the season], and Mitch played and came in and did a good job, and we’ll keep working with those two kids.”

“And next week, they may both play in certain situations.”
