AMES, Iowa (AP) - Jeremy Reeves returned an interception 94
yards for a touchdown and A.J. Klein returned a pick for another
score a few minutes later, sending Iowa State to a 27-0 victory
over Northern Iowa on Saturday night.
Grant Mahoney kicked two field goals for the Cyclones (2-2) and
Alexander Robinson added a 6-yard TD run after Mahoney scurried for
a first down on a fake field goal.
It was the first time the Cyclones returned two interceptions
for touchdowns in a game since they did it against Northern
Illinois on Sept. 18, 2004.
Northern Iowa (1-2) moved the ball well at times in the schools'
first meeting since the Panthers upset the Cyclones 24-13 in 2007.
But they were done in by three interceptions and two fumbles and
they also had a field-goal attempt blocked.
