It's been a sloppy -- so, so sloppy! -- and ugly first half between Iowa and Illinois, but Iowa has the lead, thanks to a short touchdown pass from Nate Stanley to Akrum Wadley right before the break:
The touchdown was set up by -- of all things -- a FAKE PUNT a few plays earlier. Noted riverboat gambler Kirk Ferentz strikes again!
Iowa leads 17-13 at the half.
