Start Time: 11:00 AM CST


Kirk Ferentz's first game as Iowa head coach. Leading just 7-0 after a mistake-laden first half, Nebraska gradually asserted control behind Bobby Newcombe and No. 2 quarterback Eric Crouch to spoil the debut of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. Crouch, who lost a highly publicized battle with Newcombe for the starting job, ran for three touchdowns.
