Iowa's attempt to become the winningest team in Hawkeye history came up just short at the hands of Ty Detmer and Brigham Young. The 1990 Heisman Trophy winner passed for 350 yards in rallying the Cougars back from a 13-0 halftime deficit. Iowa built its lead on two touchdown runs by Mike Saunders. Saunders joined Iowa's exclusive 1,000-yard in a season club. All-American defensive end Leroy Smith was injured in the first half and never returned to the Iowa lineup. BYU had a chance to win the game with under 30 seconds to play. The Cougars had a first down on the Iowa 18-yard line with the score tied. However, Detmer's final pass was intercepted by Carlos James at the goal line. The Hawkeyes finished the season ranked 10th in both the AP and CNN/USA Today polls with a 10-1-1 record, but the tie also prevented Iowa from having it's first 11 win season.
