11:57/Q2 – Say hello Xavier Nwankpa! Getting his start of his young career, true freshman safety Xavier Nwankpa gets a pick-six on the first play of Kentucky's latest drive. The 52-yard return and subsequent point-after kick from Drew Stevens gives Iowa their second touchdown in 11 seconds. 12:08/Q2 – Iowa finds the endzone for the first time tonightMaking the most of great field position from Kentucky's punt, Iowa needed just two plays to score their first point of the night. Both were passes from Labas who first hits Sam LaPorta for a 27-yard gain and then follows it up with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Luke Lachey.
Kentucky suffered the same fate, punting as well, however that was a better fate than losing the fumbled snap that occurred on third down. End of the first halfDestin Wade throws his second pick-six of the game, this time it falls in the hands of cornerback Cooper Dejean. Then on the next drive, Wade is sacked by Iowa's sophomore Yahya Black. As Wade was being brought down, he fumbled, but fortunately for Kentucky's sack, the ball rolled out of bounds. Heading to halftime Iowa leads the game 21-0 and will receive the second half kickoff. 1:58/Q2 – Kentucky gets to implement their two-minute offenseFollowing another punt from Iowa, Kentucky will receive the ball with nearly two minutes left and all three of their timeouts.
4:19/Q3 – Kentucky unable to build on a promising driveOn what could be considered their best drive of the day, the Wildcats' offense was still left sputtering after three straight plays that gained zero yards or less to end the drive. After their punt, the Hawkeyes will get the ball at their own 16-yard line. 9:04/Q3 – Kentucky's defense continues to stand firmThe Hawkeyes were dealt a tough blow offensively after Labas was sacked on third down, leading to their sixth punt of the night. 11:43/Q3 – Kentucky and Iowa trade punts to start the second halfAfter gaining nine yards on the first play of the second half, the Hawkeyes were unable to do much else and ultimately punted.
The Hawkeyes are on top 7-0. End of the first quarterThe score remains 0-0 as both defenses have shown some slight bend, but have not broken.

When we return Joey Labas and the rest of the offense will face a 3rd and 7 at Kentucky's 45-yard line. 0:44/Q1 – Kentucky goes three-and-outOn the bright side, the Wildcats avoided giving up a safety, but they still had to punt the ball after just three plays. 2:59/Q1 – Iowa punts for the first time tonightDespite starting with great field position, the Hawkeyes went three-and-out, leading to a punt from Tory Taylor.

Iowa vs Kentucky Football Game Summary - NCAA.com
Campbell, the Butkus Award winner as the nation’s top linebacker and the defensive player of the year in the Big Ten, has the potential to be a first-round draft pick. He had 14 tackles against Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl and another big game Saturday would improve his chances to be selected in the first round. He heads into the game tied for 14th nationally averaging 9. 8 tackles per game. Missed dateWhile Kentucky has played in the Music City Bowl more times than any other team and has a 2-3 record, Iowa missed its only opportunity in the past to play in the game because of COVID-19. The Hawkeyes had accepted an invitation to the 2020 Music City Bowl against Missouri, but the game was canceled three days before the scheduled kickoff due to a COVID-19 breakout in Missouri's program.
3 yard average and a touchdown. Jack Campbell's draft statusWhile Levis' decision not to play is a setback for Kentucky's offense, Iowa middle linebacker Jack Campbell's decision to return this season and play in the Music City Bowl is a huge benefit for the Hawkeyes' defense, which is ranked fourth nationally (277. 9 yards).
