The Iowa football team won its season-opener against South Dakota State, 7-3, Saturday afternoon. Neither the Hawkeyes nor the Jackrabbits scored a touchdown at Kinnick Stadium.

The Hawkeyes’ points came via a field goal and two safeties. The Jackrabbits registered their lone score of the game at the end of the second quarter when kicker Hunter Dustman connected on a 44-yard field goal attempt.

After watching Iowa’s defense outscore its offense, fans and national sports personalities alike took to Twitter to discuss the Hawkeyes’ unconventional victory.
