IOWA CITY, Iowa (Sports Network) - Adam Robinson carried 22 times for 115 yards and two touchdowns and Ricky Stanzi threw two touchdown passes to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos to lead 18th-ranked Iowa to comfortable 45-0 win over Ball State at Kinnick Stadium.
Stanzi completed 19-of-25 throws for 288 yards and three scores for the Hawkeyes (3-1), who bounced from a loss at Arizona last week to win for the 18th time in their last 21 games.
Johnson-Koulianos made four catches for 87 yards and Robinson caught three passes for a career-high 75 yards for the hosts, who are 15-2 at home since the start of the 2008 season.
Kelly Page connected on 4-of-11 throws for 30 yards and Eric Williams toted 10 times for 21 yards for an offense that mustered just eight first downs and 112 total yards as the Cardinals (1-3) who fell for a 20th time in 21 meetings against a Big Ten opponent.
Robinson's one-yard scoring run capped off a 10-play, 56-yard drive that put the hosts on the board with just over 6 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter.
Stanzi rolled right and found Keenan Davis open in the back of the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown toss with 5:40 left in the first half to extend the Hawkeyes' lead to 14-0.
Cardinals QB Keith Wenning fumbled on the Cardinals next possession, and Iowa took possession at the visitors' 38 after a video replay confirmed the call on the field.
The Hawkeyes cashed in three plays later when Stanzi lofted a 22-yard scoring pass to Johnson-Koulianos that made it 21-0 with 1:54 left in the half.
Iowa moved 65 yards on six plays on its first second half possession and the drive was capped on Robinson's second one-yard scoring run of the day. He set up the touchdown with a 48-yard catch and run to the Ball State seven.
Johnson-Koulianos made a leaping grab in the end zone to complete a 45-yard scoring pass from Stanzi to make it a 35-0 game with just under 3 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.
Iowa struck again 4 1/2 minutes into the final stanza on a six-yard scoring toss from James Vandenberg to Colin Sandeman to finish off a 10-play, 80-yard march.
Michael Meyer's 25-yard field goal with 5:09 to play finished the scoring.
