Something we are not familiar with this season happened in Iowa City, drops by wide receivers.  8 drops on 33 attempts, nearly 1 out of every 4 throws ended in a dropped pass.  The 2 most glaring were on Pryor’s best throws, a 50 yard pass dropped on a dime in the endzone to Posey as well as a 40 yard pass to Corey Brown who was pulled down by his facemask 5 yards in front of the backjudge (who sees nothing wrong) after dropping the ball.

Five inaccurate throws on the day, the worst at the end of the first half throwing late and well behind Washington leading to Pryor’s first interception of the day.  On 3rd and 6 with 8:33 left in the first half, Clayborne gets Pryor's legs causing a high late throw.  Posey is knocked off his spot by the defender well early of the ball getting there.  It's hard to know if the ball was catchable due to the contact on Posey.  Pryor began the fourth quarter on the wrong foot delivering low and wide of Sanzenbacher on the sideline.  On Ohio State’s final scoring drive of the day, Pryor delivered two inaccurate passes to Stoneburner before the dead on pass intended for Posey.

Pryor’s only bad read was disastrous for Ohio State as it set up Iowa’s go ahead touchdown.  Pryor tries to split the zone to Sanzenbacher on 3rd and 10, Iowa’s linebacker makes an excellent play on the ball knocking it away resulting in an interception.

Huge day running the football for Pryor 80 yards on 13 carries, plus a 2 yard sneak for a first down.  Pryor was sacked just once on the game for a 4 yard loss, leading to the 48 yard field goal.  And his 14 yard scramble on 4th and 10 was arguably the play of the game.

Big day for Dane after just one target vs Penn State he gets 8 targets catching 6 for 102 yards.  Herron also made big plays in the passing game.  A very frustrating day for Posey and Brown who will hopefully take it out on the Michigan secondary next week.

By these metrics Pryor stepped up with one of his best outings of the year (26 out of 33 in the first two columns) throwing the ball, and added a solid effort on the ground.
