A huge matchup of #1 vs #3 happened in Minneapolis. On an attempted punt after Iowa's first series of downs, a pass from center went over John Calhoun's head and Minnesota took possession and quickly scored. Iowa threatened to score early on with the ball on the 5-yard line, but ended up with a Tom Moore FG. Fullback Joe Williams ran for a TD early in the second half to give the Hawks a 10-7 lead. However, two more Iowa mistakes turned into Gopher touchdowns. The Hawks were held to only 198 yards. it would be the only loss of the year, and prevented Iowa from going to the Rose Bowl with a chance for a unanimous national championship.
