Head Coach: Frank Lauterbur
Attendance: 31,119


For only the 2nd time in school history, the Hawks failed to score a victory in a season, ending with an 0-11 record. Coach Frank Lauterbur was fired on Tuesday last week after refusing to realign his coaching staff. He ended his coaching career at Iowa with a 4-28-1 record. The Hawks gave up a safety in the 2nd quarter on a blocked punt out of the end zone, and were only down 2-0 at halftime to the 10-point favorite. But a fumble early in the 2nd half gave MSU momentum, and they scored 8 plays later. Iowa gave up two interceptions, 3 fumbles and had some costly penalties. Dirk Kryt kicked a stadium-record 49 yard FG for the Spartans, and later added a 28-yard FG in the 4th quarter.

The Hawks finally scored late in the game when QB Butch Caldwell ran 78 yards on an apparent broken play. The 2-point conversion failed, as did the ensuing onside kick.
