RECAP

#1 Iowa faced #2 Michigan in Kinnick Stadium. Iowa trailed 10-9 as the Hawkeyes regained possession of the football at their own 22-yard line with just 5:27 remaining in the game. Long drove the Iowa team to the 12-yard line with two seconds remaining to set up kicker Rob Houghtlin's game-winning 29-yard field goal as time expired. It is the only time Iowa has played in a #1 vs #2 game. Many fans will argue this is the best game in Iowa football history.
