Martin-Manley returned two punts for touchdowns to earn Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week, while Lowery's two interception returns for scores netted him Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Thanks to Martin-Manley and Lowery, the Hawkeyes were able to score four different ways during Iowa's 59-3 win over the Broncos on Saturday.
Martin-Manley became just the third Big Ten Conference player to return two punts back for touchdowns in the same game and was the first since 1983. And the returns came on consecutive attempts in the second quarter that gave Iowa a 24-0 advantage.
The junior wide receiver had 184 yards on four returns in the game and that ranks second in the history of the Big Ten Conference, trailing only former Iowa Hawkeye and Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick's 201 yards in eight attempts that came in 1939.
Lowery became the first Hawkeye and second Big Ten player to ever have two interception returns for touchdowns when he snatched Zach Terrell's first pass of the game out of the air and sprinted 13 yards into the end zone in the third quarter.
Lowery has three interceptions on the season and the 35-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter was the first of his collegiate career. That put the Hawkeyes up 38-3 late in the second period.
The Big Ten honors are the first for both players. The last Hawkeye to win special teams player of the week was kicker Mike Meyer last season, while the last Iowa player to win defensive player of the week as defensive tackle Tom Nardo in 2011.
It was the first time Iowa had two recipients in the same week since Adrian Clayborn and Pat Angerer were honored back in 2009 following Iowa's win over Penn State.
The Hawkeyes begin Big Ten Conference play Saturday against the undefeated Minnesota Gophers (4-0). Kick off in Minneapolis in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale will be 2:30 p.m.
