On first and goal from the Indiana 9, Hockenson broke past linebacker Dameon Willis Jr. on a seam route. Nate Stanley dropped a pass over Willis, and Hockenson got a foot down in bounds to complete the touchdown.
The catch finished a five-play, 74-yard drive where Iowa's offense hammered the Indiana secondary for three catches and two passing penalties. Iowa leads 7-3 with six minutes left in the first quarter.
