The No. 20 Iowa football team improved to 8-2 on the season and 5-2 in Big Ten play with a 27-22 win over Minnesota at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.

Iowa ensured that the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy will stay in Iowa City for another year. The Hawkeyes have defeated the Gophers in seven consecutive meetings. Minnesota has not defeated Iowa at Kinnick Stadium since 1999. Iowa quarterback Alex Padilla accounted for three touchdowns in his first game as a starter for the Hawkeyes. Defensive end Joe Evans sacked Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan near midfield in the final seconds to end the game.

Below are some Twitter reactions from the game.
