RECAP

This game in 1977 was the first time that Iowa and Iowa State played since 1934. Bob Commings' Hawkeyes upset Earl Bruce's 19th ranked Cyclones inside Kinnick Stadium.

It was a big game with big plays. A 63-yard punt return, a 77-yard touchdown jaunt, a fumble only 19 yards from the enemy end zone and a booming 48-yard punt. Iowa State's defense was nothing short of spectacular, limiting the Hawks to only 192 yards total, 77 of which came on Dennis Mosley's second quarter scoring burst. But the Iowa defense was even better, limiting the Cyclones to only 96 yards and shutting down Dexter Green to only 46 yards in 21 carries.

PLAYER GAME QUOTES

Tom Rusk I was so emotional before the game, I had tears in my eyes and a Iump in my throat. I couldn't help it, because it's been in my blood since I was recruited by Iowa State and then suddenly shut off. If I got a chance I was going to get those guys.
