Iowa's season opener against TCU was played under the shadow of a new press box, which would watch over nearly five decades of Hawkeye football.

Bob Jeter ran for 63 yards including a 41-yard TD and Randy Duncan connected with Don Norton for a TD in the 3rd quarter as Iowa shuts out the Horned Frogs. Bob Prescott added a 21-yd FG.

The win shot the Hawkeyes up to No. 8 in the September 29 poll. TCU, the eventual Southwest Conference champions, would finish in the top ten of the final poll with an 8-2-1 record.

Clips from highlights run from 16:00-16:24.
