Iowa rallied in the second half, closing to within a touchdown with 6:56 remaining, but 14th-ranked Oklahoma (coached by former Hawkeye Bobby Stoops) controlled the ball over the final eight minutes in recording a 31-14 win at the 2011 Insight Bowl.

Oklahoma built a 21-0 advantage before Iowa got its offense going in the second half. Iowa used a 16-play drive that consumed 7:50, scoring on a 5-yard pass from QB James Vandenberg to TE C.J. Fiedorowicz on the second play of the final quarter.

The last time Iowa played Oklahoma was a 21-6 loss in 1979 on the road, when Bobby Stoops was a player at Iowa.
