RECAP

Bergstrom was heavily favored, but their star player Owen Price was unable to make the trip, and the team had to land their aircraft in Saint Louis and drive to Iowa City late at night.

After two early fumbles, the Hawks settled down. QB Jerry Niles threw 2 TDs and kicked both extra points. Nelson Smith had long runs and caught one TD pass. The first TD came after an Ozzie Simmons interception. Bergstrom tied up the game with a blocked punt for a TD. The difference in the game was a missed extra point and a missed FG late in the game.

The game was historic for many reasons. First, it was the first peacetime sport to be held since V-day, and the first game against Bergstrom. It was the first team from Texas to play at Iowa Stadium, the first squad to fly to Iowa City for a game, and the first Big Ten team that Bergstrom has played.
