RECAP

Iowa's defense and special teams scored two touchdowns and FB David Hudson tallied on a short run in the fourth period to rally the Hawkeyes to a 20-19 triumph over Wyoming in the 10th Holiday Bowl. Merton Hanks deflected a second-period punt, the first of his two blocked kicks, and Jay Hess covered it in the end zone for a score. Anthony Wright cut the lead to 19-13 with a 33-yard interception return. Greg Worker's 52-yard FG attempt was blocked by Hanks with 46 seconds left to preserve the victory. Wright, who added six tackles, was Iowa's game MVP. Wyoming had a 12-0 lead before Hess got the Hawkeyes on the scoreboard, but Iowa still trailed 19-7 at halftime before pitching a shutout in the second half.
