Official Game Program


Iowa jumped out to the early lead and didn't look back, defeating Pac-10 co-champion Washington, 38-18, in the 62nd annual Sun Bowl. Sedrick Shaw started the Iowa scoring by taking a handoff and running 58 yards for a touchdown only 1:52 into the game. Kickers Brion Hurley and Zach Bromert each added a pair of field goals. Hurley kicked his third field goal of the day from 50 yards out (also hit from 49 and 47 yards) as Iowa's lead climbed to 24 in the third quarter. Iowa fullback Michael Burger scored on runs of eight- and one-yard to increase the score to 38-6 before Washington added two late scores. The Iowa defense recorded four sacks while forcing three fumbles. Hawkeye running backs Shaw (135) and Tavian Banks (122) each rushed for over 100 yards. Jared DeVries was named Defensive MVP.
