The Hawkeyes used a feaflicker play on their first drive to take an early lead on a 35-yard touchdown pass from Chuck Hartlieb to Quinn Early. The Hawks fell behind later in the game 21-20, but a David Hudson TD and Rob Houghtlin FG put the Hawks back up for good. Hartlieb fell just short of recording his third consecutive 300-yard passing game, totaling 271 yards on the day and leading an 80-yard game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.

Houghtlin kicked 3 FGs in the game, and is now the career leader in most FGs in school history (48, previous record was Tom Nichol with 45).

Indiana had a chance to make it interesting late in the game, but interceptions from Dwight Sistrunk (2nd of the game) and Kerry Burt secured the win. The Hawks pulled an upset over the Hoosiers, who were leading the Big Ten at 4-0 and ranked 11th in the nation coming into the game.

Marv Cook was all over the field, catching 4 passes for 94 yards, including a 60-yard critical reception after Iowa fell behind. He also handled the punting duties, and had a 64-yard punt, and averaged 43 yards on the day.

Chuck Hartlieb For the last year and a half, I felt I could win for this team. I thought I was a Big Ten quarterback. All I wanted was a chance, and that's all I asked for from Coach (Hayden) Fry, and he eventually gave it to me.
-- Chuck Hartlieb


Hayden Fry I lied to you people. I said I wasn't going to go to my bag of tricks, It was an extremely well-executed play and that gave us a lot of momentum.
-- Hayden Fry
Quoted after the game in the Daily Iowan, discussing the fleaflicker TD in the first drive of the game.
