The Hawkeyes beat Western Michigan 41-10 on Saturday to continue their perfect start to the season. Iowa has now won all three of its games this season.

During their performance, a male cheerleader ran across the field before performing impressive stunts.
An Iowa Cheerleader Suffered an Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunction Saturday
His pants fell off in the middle of an acrobatic routine at Nile Kinnick Stadium.
The performer finished his routine with his pants around his ankles as he flew through the air.
But he avoided further humiliation by somehow landing his backflip before pulling up his pants.
But as he tried to finish his routine with a backflip – a twist in the air – the cheerleader’s pants fell to his ankles.
Unfazed, he managed to pull off the move and pull up his pants before leaving the field to applause from the stands – and gasps from his teammates.
The images went viral and sparked hilarious reactions on social media. “(He) picked a good day not to go commando,” one user wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Good thing he was wearing clean underwear,” another added.
Some fans gave advice to other cheerleaders who were considering following her lead. “The drawstring is essential for doing somersaults in front of 40,000 people,” wrote one.
