Iowa drove 84 yards in 11 plays in the final quarter for the game-winning touchdown as the Hawkeyes celebrated Homecoming with a 21-16 win over 25th ranked Michigan State. Starting from its own 16 yardline following a blocked field goal attempt, Iowa scored the winning points on a 43-yard pass from Jon Beutjer to Kevin Kasper with 2:47 remaining.

After opening the game with a 75-yard scoring drive, the Iowa offense struggled until its final, game-winning drive. Trailing 16-7, the Hawkeyes got a big lift from the special teams when Khalil Hill answered a Michigan State touchdown with a 90-yard kickoff return, closing the gap to 16-14 late in the third period. Beutjer led the Iowa offense by completing 17-25 passes for 146 yards and 1 TD, while RB Ladell Betts rushed 24 times for 88 yards.

Michigan State RB T.J. Duckett made life hard on the Hawkeye defense, rumbling for 248 yards on 30 carries, while DE Aaron Kampman, who had 16 tackles, a pass interception and a blocked field goal, led the Hawkeye defense and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. LB LeVar Woods had 10 tackles and an interception and DT Jerry Montgomery had nine tackles. Montgomery also blocked an MSU PAT and tipped the pass that was intercepted by Woods, following Iowa’s final touchdown.
