#10 Iowa  @  #9 Iowa State   Iowa State

W    27 - 17 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

For the first time in the series, both teams were ranked, and it was a Top 10 matchup that brought College Gameday to Ames. The Hawks' offense was below average (under 200 yards), but didn't turn the ball over. The defense was the difference for the 2nd week in a row, forcing three third-quarter turnovers, including a crucial forced fumble from Jestin Jacobs that was recovered for a TD by Jack Campbell. Matt Hankins had two interceptions. Iowa turned four takeaways into 20 points. They extended their scoring defense streak of under 25 points to 24 games.

The special teams excelled as well. Tory Taylor had a 69-yard punt that changed the game in a tight third quarter, placed 5 punts inside the 20, and averaged 51.1 yards per punt. Caleb Shudak (son of former Iowa State kicker Jeff Shudak) boomed a 51-yard field goal and a 22-yard FG late in the game.

#19 Iowa  vs  #25 Wisconsin   Wisconsin

W    28 - 7 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Iowa RB Tyler Goodson rushed for 106 yards, including an 80-yard TD to seal the victory. Ihmir Smith-Marsette caught 7 passes for a career-high 140 yards and two touchdowns, but injured himself on the TD celebration. The Iowa defense was outstanding, limiting the Badgers to just 225 total yards, 56 on the ground, and big plays in critical situations.

Iowa was in control 21-7 in the 4th, but a botched punt gave Wisconsin the ball at the Iowa. Jack Campbell intercepted the ball in the end zone on 4th down, and Goodson ran for a TD on the ensuing drive.

It was the first victory for Iowa over Wisconsin at home since 2008. Iowa finished 2nd in the West Division with the win, their sixth in a row after starting 0-2. They also played all scheduled games without any cancellations, and had very few players miss games due to COVID-19.

#24 Iowa  vs  Nebraska   Nebraska

W    26 - 20 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Iowa extended its winning streak to six games against the Cornhuskers, but it was a struggle against a Nebraska team that looked poorly this season. Keith Duncan did his part by making 4-of-5 field-goal attempts, including two in the fourth quarter.

The Hawks sealed the victory when senior end Chauncey Golston knocked the ball loose from QB Adrian Martinez near midfield. The fumble was recovered by defensive end Zach VanValkenburg.

The Huskers focused on shutting down the running game. Tyler Goodson finished with over 100 rushing yards but it took 30 carries.

Penn State replaced QBs in the 3rd quarter down 31-7, and scored twice in 2 plays to cut the lead to 31-21. After a short FG by Keith Duncan, Dayvian Nixon intercepted a pass and returned it 71 yards for a touchdown with 2 minutes remaining. The win was the 100th Big Ten victory for Kirk Ferentz, and snapped a 6-game losing streak to Penn State.

Iowa  @  Minnesota   Minnesota

W    35 - 7 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

In a rare Friday night game, the Hawks continue their 6-game winning streak over the Gophers. Minnesota did score near end of the game to avoid the shutout, but it was all Iowa the entire game. The Iowa running game was impressive against a bad Minnesota rush defense. 35 carries for 236 yards and 4 TDs, most by Tyler Goodson. He had a career high 142 yards and 2 TDs on 20 carries. Iowa defense was able to keep the Gophers running game in check and grabbed two interceptions.

Iowa  @  Purdue   Purdue

L    20 - 24 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

The Hawks struggled to take advantage of Purdue's loss of star receiver Rondale Moore and head coach Jeff Brohm's COVID diagnosis. Iowa struggled to stop David Bell (13 passes, 3 TDs and 121 yards) and RB Zander Horvath (21 carries for 129 yards). They also had 100 yards in penalties.

Spencer Petras' first start at QB showed signs of promise, going 22/39 and 265 yards passing, and ran for one TD. Iowa was able to rush for almost 200 yards, but lost two costly fumbles deep in Purdue territory.

Iowa punter Tory Taylor excelled in his first game with 6 punts averaging 44.2 yards and a long of 52 yards, with two punts downed inside the 20. Keith Duncan added 2 FGs.

Alamo Bowl (San Antonio, TX)

#21 Iowa  vs  Texas Tech   Texas Tech

W    27 - 0 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

In its first trip back to San Antonio since losing to California 37-3 in the inaugural 1993 Alamo Bowl, Iowa's defense put on a clinic in stopping the run, headed by sophomore linebackers Matt Hughes and Vernon Rollins, held Doak Walker Award winner and 2,000-yard rusher Byron Hanspard to 64 yards rushing on 18 attempts. Sedrick Shaw rushed for 113 yards on 20 carries to end his prolific career as the all-time leading rusher in Iowa Football history with 4,156 yards and 33 rushing touchdowns. In the process the Hawkeyes shut down Texas Tech for a dominating 27-0 win. The stickers were removed from the helmet in memory of Diane Mitchell, mother of linebacker Mark Mitchell, who died in a car accident on the trip down to Texas.

Iowa  vs  #7 Nebraska   Nebraska

W    10 - 7 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

What will likely be considered one of college football's major upsets of the year, Iowa survived a fast and furious finish to beat Nebraska 10-7, after losing 57-0 the previous year. It was Hayden Fry's first major upset at Iowa.

The Iowa defense forced 5 interceptions and held the Huskers to just 231 yards. They held Davenport-native and future NFL running back Roger Craig to 74 yards on 19 carries, one touchdown and two fumbles.

Iowa scored first with a 2-yard touchdown leap from Eddie Phillips. Lon Olejniczak kicked a 35-yard field goal on the first play of the second quarter to push the lead to 10-0. Reggie Roby was also key to the victory, averaging 55.8 yards on five punts with a long of 62 yards.

Iowa  vs  Arizona   Arizona

L    3 - 5 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

The defense played outstanding, but the kicking game struggles cost the Hawks the game.

With 8 seconds remaining in the first half, Roby had another kick blocked by Ware, thwarting a 42-yard FG attempt. In the second half, Roby hit on a 36-yard field goal attempt, but then missed a 48-yard try by inches with 2:28 remaining in the game.

L    26 - 30 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Hayden Fry's first game as Hawkeye head coach. He faced off against Indiana head coach Lee Corso. The Hawks jumped to a 26-3 lead at half behind Dennis Mosley's four touchdowns. But the Hawks let Indiana rally from behind, giving up 20 4th quarter points, including a 66-yard game-winning pass to Lonnie Johnson with only 58 seconds to play. Mosley rushed for 142 yards on 20 carries for the Hawks, and quarterback Phil Suess passed for 227 yards and completed 17 of 30 passes.

"I was surprised with the polish Iowa showed with the new coach and new system," Corso agreed. "It wasn't so much against us - they're good'" - Lee Corso

OSU running back Archie Griffin broke the 100-yard mark for the 26th straight regular season game with 121 yards on 21 carries.

The Iowa offense did surprisingly well despite the shutout, rushing for 172 yards, 14 first downs and had zero fumbles.
