Scoring a defensive touchdown wasn’t enough for Iowa football safety Kaevon Merriweather.

After Merriweather completed a scoop and score off of a Rutgers fumble in the second quarter, he captured a pass from quarterback Evan Simon for his second interception of the day at the 5:49 mark of the third.

In the first quarter, defensive back Cooper DeJean scored a pick-six against Rutgers for Iowa’s first score of the day. The Hawkeyes have now forced three turnovers.
