The Iowa Hawkeyes are having no problem with Middle Tennessee on Saturday afternoon. One play in particular might sum up how the contest has gone for the Blue Raiders.

On the opening drive of the game, Iowa junior wideout Ihmir Smith-Marsette rushed for a 14-yard gain along the right sideline. Along the way, he put a nasty move on a defender that has Hawkeyes fans talking.

Smith-Marsette fakes a cut back inside and loses the defender in the process. The Middle Tennessee player trips over his own feet trying to stay with him.

Check it out - it caught SportsCenter's attention.

Iowa currently leads the contest 41-3 midway through the fourth quarter. It's a safe bet that the Hawkeyes are going to move to 4-0 on the season.

Quarterback Nate Stanley has had a stellar day - at the moment he's 17-of-25 for 276 yards with two touchdowns.

Things get a little more difficult for Iowa next week when they head to Michigan to take on the Wolverines. They also still have Penn State, Wisconsin and Nebraska on their schedule.
