In a game that was originally thought to be a defensive matchup, the Hawkeyes took a 24-12 lead early in the fourth quarter. But behind freshman quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the Tigers stormed back, and took a one-point lead with 46 seconds remaining. However, LSU's comeback was all for naught, as Iowa's Drew Tate completed a 56-yard touchdown pass to Warren Holloway as time expired (famously called "the catch"), giving Iowa the 30-25 win and a 10-2 final record.
