#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.

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.

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.

San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl (San Diego, CA)

#16 Iowa  vs  #22 USC   USC

W    49 - 24 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Iowa's Ihmir Smith-Marsette scored on a 6-yard run, a 98-yard kickoff return and a 12-yard reception -- all in the second quarter -- to lead Iowa to a 49-24 rout of No. 22 USC. The Hawkeyes won their fourth straight game for their sixth 10-win season in coach Kirk Ferentz's 21 years. The Hawkeyes honored both Hayden Fry, the former coach who died Dec. 17 at age 90, and Bump Elliott, a former athletic director who died Dec. 7 at 94. Senior Nate Stanley became the fifth Iowa quarterback to start three bowl games. He won all three. Against USC, he was 18 of 27 for 213 yards with 2 touchdown passes. There was a moment of silence before the national anthem for Fry. Iowa also paid tribute to Fry by removing the Tigerhawk decals from its helmets. Fry introduced the logo during his 20-year tenure, which included trips to the Holiday Bowl in 1986, 1987 and 1991.

Iowa forced three turnovers and RB Akrum Wadley amassed a career-high 283 all-purpose yards in a 27-20 Iowa victory in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. The win snapped Iowa's five-game bowl losing streak. Wadley, who was named Pinstripe Bowl MVP, totaled an Iowa bowl record 171 yards on five kickoff returns. The game was played in frigid temperatures, 23 degrees at kickoff with wind chills in the lower teens, and is the coldest Pinstripe Bowl on record. The Hawkeyes totaled 200 yards of offense, its lowest total in a bowl game win in program history. Wadley scored his 35th career touchdown, which tied Sedrick Shaw for second most in program history, on a 5-yard rush midway through the third quarter to even the score. Both teams traded field goals in the fourth quarter before the Iowa defense collected two turnovers in the final five minutes. All-American CB Josh Jackson helped seal the win by collecting his eighth interception of the season, tying a school single-season record, on Boston College's next possession.

L    16 - 45 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Christian McCaffrey caught a short pass and turned it into a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. The Hawkeyes were unable to stop him, as he averaged 9.6 YPC (172 yards on 18 carries), returned a punt for a touchdown, and converted many third downs. Though he did not rush for any touchdowns from scrimmage, he proved to be the primary playmaker for Stanford, catching a third (4) of Kevin Hogan's passes. McCaffrey was such an offensive threat that Hogan was able to make large gains with the read option, including a wide-open first-quarter option TD run.

L    14 - 21 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

No. 14 LSU scored 14-first-half points and ultimately held on to defeat Iowa, 21-14, at the 2014 Outback Bowl in Tampa. The Tigers drove 77 yards on the first possession of the game to grab a 7-0 advantage. In the second quarter, LSU capitalized on a Kevonte Martin-Manley fumbled punt at the 39-yard line, scoring seven plays later on a 14-yard rush to take a 14-0 halftime lead. John Lowdermilk provided a spark in the third quarter, intercepting QB Anthony Jennings and returning his first career theft 71 yards to the 1-yard line. The 71-yard interception return is the 12th-longest in school history. Three plays later RB Mark Weisman scored on a 2-yard rush to cut the deficit to 14-7. Midway through the fourth quarter, Iowa marched inside the LSU red zone, but a fourth down interception at the LSU 8-yard line thwarted a game-tying scoring drive. LSU scored its third touchdown on a Jeremy Hill 37-yard rush, his second score of the game, with 1:50 left to play. Iowa's Jordon Cotton returned the ensuing kickoff a career-long 96 yards to the LSU 4-yard line. The 96-yard kickoff return is the eighth-longest return in school history and longest non-touchdown kickoff return in Iowa annals. Two plays later, QB C.J. Beathard connected with Martin-Manley in the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown for the final score. QB Jake Rudock completed 9-of-22 passes for 102 yards before leaving in the third period due to injury. Beathard completed 4-of-7 passes for 55 yards and a score. Weisman rushed 18 times for 37 yards, while TE C.J. Fiedorowicz caught a game-high four passes for 46 yards. Cotton's 42.7 kickoff return average on three attempts broke the Outback Bowl record for kickoff return average. LB James Morris recorded eight tackles and reached 400 career tackles in his career -- becoming only the sixth Hawkeye to accomplish that feat.

James Vandenberg went 16 for 24 for 177 yards and a touchdown to Marvin McNutt, who caught seven of those passes for 101 yards. Mike Meyer missed two field goals for Iowa in the first half (24 and 43 yards) on consecutive possessions. Marcus Coker carried the ball 32 times through several huge holes for 252 yards and two touchdowns.

After cutting the lead to 21-16, the Gophers caught Iowa playing almost 15 yards back on the kickoff, and Kim Royston -- who had a game-high 16 tackles -- recovered the onside attempt. Gray had a pair of sharp passes for first downs to move the ball forward and then, on fourth-and-goal at the 2, ran to his right to scrape the edge of the end zone with 2:48 remaining for Minnesota's first lead of the entire month.

W    27 - 24 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Iowa used record setting performances on both offense and defense to earn a 27-24 win over 12th-ranked Missouri in the 2010 Insight Bowl. The win was the third straight bowl victory for the Hawkeyes and the fourth of the season (in eight games) against a nationally-ranked opponent. Freshman RB Marcus Coker was the key player for the Iowa offense, rushing 33 times for 219 yards and two touchdowns. Both the rushing attempts and yards established Iowa bowl records. Sophomore DB Micah Hyde scored the winning points with 5:32 remaining in the game on a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown. That set an Iowa bowl record and ranks as the eighth longest return in school history.

With Iowa leading 17-13 late in the fourth quarter, Buckeye quarterback Terrelle Pryor scrambled for 14 yards on 4th and 10. Four plays later, Dan Herron scored from a yard out giving Ohio State the lead for good. The loss was the Hawkeyes' third in five weeks where Iowa gave up the game-winning score inside the final two minutes of the game. Ricky Stanzi had 195 yards passing and a touchdown for the Hawkeyes, who've let up a go-ahead winning touchdown in the fourth quarter of each of their defeats. Marcus Coker rushed for 70 yards on 9 carries.

In July 2011, Ohio State vacated all of their 2010 victories in response to the NCAA infractions committed by five players, which Coach Jim Tressel had covered up at the time. This included their victory against the Hawkeyes.

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

In the 2nd game against his alma mater, Arizona coach Mike Stoops got his first victory in an exciting game at night in Arizona. After allowing a punt block and an interception return for touchdown in the 1st quarter, the Wildcats fumbled deep in Iowa territory which would have put them up 21-0. Iowa moved down the field for a score to make it 14-7, but the ensuing kickoff was returned 100 yards for a touchdown. The #9 Hawkeyes found themselves down by 20 at halftime. Despite the sizable deficit on the road, Iowa mounted a comeback with a strong second half. Ricky Stanzi tossed a third quarter touchdown to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, and another in the fourth to Marvin McNutt (reversed to a TD on replay) to bring the Hawkeyes to within six at 27-21. Moments later, defensive end Broderick Binns snatched a Nick Foles pass out of the air and returned it 20 yards for the tying touchdown. The extra point was blocked, denying the Hawkeyes their first lead of the game. On the ensuing possession, Foles led the Wildcats on a 9-play, 72-yard drive capped with a 4-yard touchdown pass on third and goal with 4 minutes remaining. Stanzi was sacked three times on Iowa's next possession, effectively ending the game. Arizona would go on to start 7-1 before dropping their final five games of the season to finish 7-6. Full game video shows clips of first 10 minutes when Iowa gets down 14-0, then starts at 5 minutes remaining in the 1st quarter.

But Iowa would score 21 unanswered points after that to stun Penn State for the second consecutive year. The defense shut down the Nittany Lions in the final three quarters, forcing four turnovers, and the turning point in the game came when Penn State punted, clinging to a 10-5 lead in the fourth quarter, Adrian Clayborn blocked a punt and ran it back 53 yards for a touchdown to give the Hawkeyes the lead. With the momentum changed, they were more easily able to move the ball on their final two drives. The win at Penn State on prime-time network television catapulted Iowa to a number 13 ranking in the AP Poll and a number 17 ranking in the Coaches' Poll.

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Freshman running back Adam Robinson rushed for a career-high 101 yards and two touchdowns, and Iowa held Arizona to just eight first downs, spoiling coach Mike Stoops's return to Kinnick Stadium, who played for the Hawkeyes in the early '80s. Arizona Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops was also a former Iowa player.

Iowa went 75 yards on the opening drive, and Robinson's 2-yard TD leap put the Hawkeyes ahead 7-0. Arizona cornerback Terevin Wade intercepted Ricky Stanzi and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown midway through the first quarter. Stanzi ended with 20 for 32 passing and 205 yards.

The Wildcats took their only lead, 10-7, behind a breathtaking 58-yard run by Nic Grigsby midway through the second quarter down to the 1-yard line. The Hawkeye defense stuffed the Wildcats on the goal line to force a 20-yard field goal by Alex Zendejas midway through the second quarter.

Robinson went 43 yards on third-and-23, and followed with a 1-yard plunge that put the Hawkeyes back ahead with 6:28 left in the first half. The Wildcats then went for a fake field goal on the Iowa 23, but the Hawkeyes snuffed it out to preserve a 14-10 halftime lead. That's as close as Arizona would get the rest of the game.

Iowa's Daniel Murray hit a 20-yard field goal to put Iowa ahead 17-10 late in the third, and his 40-yarder following Tyler Sash's interception (his fourth interception in the past two games) made it 20-10 early in the fourth.

The Hawkeyes went on an 14 play, 74 yard, 8 1/2-minute drive that took up much of the quarter, and Brandon Wegher's 2-yard TD plunge put Iowa ahead 27-10 with 4:40 left.

Arizona brought in QB Nick Foles early in the fourth quarter. Foles finished 6 of 11 and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Juron Criner with 1:53 left, the first touchdown allowed by Iowa on defense since the season opener. The onside kick was nearly successful, but ultimately was recovered by Iowa.

Arizona was hurt offensively with the loss of third-team All-American tight end Rob Gronkowski, who did not travel and will be out for the season.

Iowa scored on five of its first six first half possessions en route to a 45-21 victory over Northern Iowa in Kinnick Stadium. The win was the Hawkeyes' 20th straight home win, which ties a school record.

The Hawkeyes scored the first 21 points on RB Albert Young touchdown runs and a CB Jovon Johnson interception return for a score. Young posted scoring runs of 10 and one yard in the first quarter, while Johnson returned his 15th career pick 18 yards for a touchdown.

The Panthers added two fourth quarter touchdowns, before Iowa RB Damian Sims scampered for a 39 yard touchdown with 30 seconds left to give the Hawkeyes a 45-21 victory. The touchdown was the first of Sims' career.

Tate completed 15-18 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns. The 247 yards moved him over 3,000 career yards passing into seventh on Iowa's career passing chart. He also rushed three times for 33 yards. Young led the Hawkeye ground attack, recording 13 carries for 97 yards and two scores. Solomon posted four catches for 114 yards and two toucdowns, while WR Ed Hinkel contributed five receptions for 42 yards.

Iowa's linebacking duo of Chad Greenway and Abdul Hodge spearheaded the Iowa defense. Greenway collected a game and career-high 20 tackles (12 solo), including one for loss and one pass break-up to earn Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors for the third time in his career.

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

Iowa cruised to a 56-0 win over Ball State for its fifth-consecutive season opening victory. The shutout was the Hawkeyes' first since blanking Kent State (51-0) in the 2001 season opener.

The Hawkeyes scored points on seven of their first eight first half possessions, with all seven scoring drives resulting in touchdowns. RB Marcus Schnoor scored on a one-yard run to open the scoring, followed by a RB Albert Young two-yard plunge.

Jovon Johnson tallied Iowa's third score on a 90-yard punt return. The return came following a Ball State quick kick by Ball State QB Joey Lynch from shotgun formation on fourth down. The punt return is the fourth longest in school history and third longest in Kinnick Stadium.

QB Drew Tate connected with WR Clinton Soloman for a seven yard touchdown to give the Hawkeyes a 28-0 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

Iowa scored three more times in the second quarter on a 33-yard reception by WR Herb Grigsby and a pair of RB Sam Brownlee runs (11 yards and one yard). After a scoreless third quarter, RB Shonn Greene became the eight Hawkeye to score a point on a six yard run in the fourth quarter.

Hawkeye quarterbacks combined for 19-20 passing for 200 yards and two touchdowns. Tate completed 9-10 passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns, Jason Manson completed 9-9 passes for 92 yards and Cy Phillips completed his only attempt for nine yards.

Greene led all rushers, carrying the ball 18 times for 116 yards, while Young gained 61 yards on just five carries. Moeaki led all Iowa receivers with three receptions for 28 yards.

Iowa's defense recovered one fumble and collected seven tackles for loss, including three sacks. DB Devan Moylan recorded a team-best six tackles (4 solo) and DE Bryan Mattison had five tackles.

Iowa started the game by scoring a touchdown on a season-long 18-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 9:06. QB Nathan Chandler found TE Tony Jackson in the back of the end zone for a one-yard touchdown pass. It was the only scoring in the first quarter.

Iowa added 10 points in the second quarter for a 17-0 halftime advantage. PK Nate Kaeding connected on a 23-yard field goal and RB Fred Russell scored on a two-yard run.

Iowa doubled its scoring output in the third quarter with 17 more points. Kaeding converted a 24-yard field goal, SS Bob Sanders returned a fumble three yards for a touchdown and Russell ran 14 yards for a score. Not only did Russell stretch the Hawkeyes' lead to 34-0 on his last rushing attempt of the game, but he eclipsed 1,000 yards for the season. Russell is only the third Hawkeye running back to top 1,000 yards in a season more than once.

Illinois scored the game's next 10 points in the fourth quarter before true freshman QB Drew Tate tossed a 13-yard touchdown pass, the first of his career, to WR Matt Melloy to complete the scoring.

Iowa totaled a season-high 505 yards of offense and out-rushed the Fighting Illini 244-59. Chandler completed 14-23 passes for a career-high 243 yards and one touchdown. Russell finished with 94 yards on 23 attempts. WR Calvin Davis collected career highs in receptions (5) and receiving yardage (109). LB Abdul Hodge, SS Bob Sanders and DE Matt Roth led the Hawkeyes on defense. Hodge posted a team-high nine tackles (7 solo) and recovered a fumble. Sanders collected three tackles (2 solo), had one pass break-up, forced a fumble and returned a fumble three yards for his first career touchdown. Roth forced a fumble and collected six tackles (4 solo). He matched a career-high with three sacks. Roth's efforts earned him his first Big Ten co-Defensive Player of the Week honors.

Highlights start around 9 minutes into video.

Big plays on special teams and a strong defensive effort enabled the Hawkeyes to snap a five-game losing skid to in-state rival Iowa State in a 40-21 road victory.

After posting a field goal on its opening drive, LB Grant Steen recovered a first-quarter fumble that led to Iowa's first touchdown as QB Nathan Chandler hit Maurice Brown on a 17-yard pass play to give Iowa an early 10-0 lead. The score proved costly, though, as Brown was hurt on the play and missed five games. After a Cyclone score, Iowa put up 23 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to extend its lead to 33-7.

Iowa scored 10 points in the second quarter on a RB Fred Russell three-yard run and a Nate Kaeding 23-yard field goal before the Hawkeye special teams broke the game open in the third quarter.

Sean Considine blocked his first of two punts, which was recovered by Chris Smith in the end zone. Two drives later, Steen returned an interception 15 yards to the ISU four-yard line, which Iowa converted into a field goal. Iowa's defense stopped ISU on the next drive and Considine blocked another punt that led to three more points. RB Marcus Schnoor added a 33-yard scoring run to put an exclamation point on the Hawkeye victory.

Kaeding kicked four field goals and four PATs to set a single-game record with 16 kicking points. He also tied the school record (four) for field goals in a game. Additionally, he passed Rob Houghtlin to become Iowa's career scoring leader with 291 points. Kaeding's efforts landed him Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Chandler completed 7-14 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. Russell rushed for 75 yards on 26 carries, while Brown caught three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with the ankle injury. Defensively, Iowa recorded 14 tackles for loss, including three sacks. Steen collected six tackles, intercepted one pass and recovered a fumble. Considine recorded six tackles, including one for loss, blocked two punts and had one pass break-up. LB Chad Greenway had a career-high 17 tackles, while LB Abdul Hodge registered a career-high 15 stops, including three for loss, one sack, and a forced fumble.

USC Trojans (Pac-10 co-champions), featuring Heisman winner Carson Palmer, beat #5 Iowa (Big Ten co-champions) with Heisman runner-up Brad Banks by the score of 38-17. The game opened up with a bang for the Hawkeyes, as C.J. Jones took the opening kickoff 100-yards for the touchdown. But as it turns out, it would be the only time until late in the fourth quarter that the Hawkeyes would see the endzone. Although the game was tied at halftime, USC blocked Iowa's last-second field goal, preventing a possible Iowa lead at the half. From there, Heisman winner Carson Palmer went to work. The senior quarterback threw for over 300 yards against the Big Ten's worst passing defense and led scoring drives of 79, 80, 99, 85 and 61 yards as the Trojans held a 16-minute advantage in time of possession. The USC defense was suffocating and Iowa's miscues were proof. The Hawkeyes had two turnovers, 13 penalties, and multiple missed opportunities.

The annual battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy was scheduled originally for September 15, but due to the September 11 attacks, it was postponed or canceled like all sporting events planned for that weekend. The game was rescheduled for November 24, which turned out to be a natural fit since many other major rivalries were played that weekend.

Iowa finally responded in the third quarter with two touchdowns from Ladell Betts, who also rushed for 150 yards on the day. The final scoring play of the game came early in the fourth quarter, with Tony Yelk kicking a 32-yard field goal to put the Cyclones up 17–14.

Arizona answered each Iowa mistake with a big play as the 16th-ranked Wildcats won 35-11 in Tuscon. The Wildcats used big plays (56 and 25 yards) on third and long situations to keep scoring drives alive in the first half and take a 14-3 lead at halftime.

What started out auspiciously for No. 23-ranked Iowa ended in disaster as Northwestern all-American Darnell Autry riddled the Iowa defense for a career-high 240 yards rushing and four touchdowns as the 18th-ranked Wildcats' coasted to a 40-13 win. It was Northwestern's first win at Kinnick Stadium since 1971. Iowa held Autry and the powerful Northwestern offense in check through the first quarter, but the Wildcats opened a 10-0 margin on a 23-yard touchdown pass from wideout D'Wayne Bates to tight end Darren Drexler early in the second. Iowa countered with an 80-yard drive of its own capped by Tim Dwight's 29-yard touchdown reception from Matt Sherman. Autry scored both Wildcat touchdowns in the third quarter, first on a nine-yard run and then on a 15-yard pass just before the beginning of the fourth. He added a 41-yard touchdown run at the beginning of the fourth quarter and finished Northwestern's scoring with an 18-yard run. Dwight, who finished with a career-high 188 receiving yards, set up Tavian Banks' 10-yard scoring pass from Sherman with catches of 49 and 38 yards.

Going into the game, Iowa had a 3-game losing streak to Illinois, including two blowout losses in 1993 and 1994. Vernon Rollins' 20-yard interception return for a touchdown - set up by the pressure defense of Jared DeVries - broke open a 17-14 Iowa lead and sparked the 25th-ranked Hawkeyes to a 31-21 win over Illinois. The weather was windy and bitterly cold as the wind chill was near zero. The Hawkeyes fought off the elements and took the lead in the first quarter on a 13-yard run by Sedrick Shaw. Shaw, who had his best day of the year with 159 yards on 32 carries, had a 41-yard run as he was the workhorse on the drive. Illinois came back strong with 14 straight points on a 17-yard pass-play and a 16-yard fumble return. But the Hawkeyes countered with a 10-play, 50-yard drive capped by Damon Gibson's eight yard touchdown reception. Iowa, which edged Illinois 320-272 in total yards, added another touchdown on Tim Dwight's 11-yard reception from Sherman to take a 31-14 lead. Defensive end Brett Chambers's diving interception at the Illinois 19 set up the score. Damien Robinson again led with 10 tackles, and Matt Hughes had eight.

Rain fell virtually all day for Iowa's game at Penn State. Things initially looked bleak for Iowa as the 8th-ranked Nittany Lions took the opening kickoff and drove the length of the field for a 7-0 lead. That's when Iowa junior Tim Dwight turned his motor up a notch and turned on the afterburners for an 83-yard punt return to knot the score at 7.

With Sedrick Shaw nursing injuries, junior Tavian Banks rushed for 116 yards in 26 attempts and the winning touchdown - an 8-yard run on first and goal. It followed a 25-yard pass from running back Rob Thein to Demo Odems.

On a rainy and wet field, Iowa fell to 0-3 in the Big Ten for the first time in Hayden Fry's tenure, and offensive is a big reason. Iowa has scored only two touchdowns in its last three games, all losses, and hit a season-low 201 yards of total offense.

After a Scott Plate interception, the Hawks had the ball on the Indiana 20-yard line, but had to settle for a 36-yard FG from Todd Romano. Indiana added 2 FGs to take a 6-3 lead at halftime, as Iowa struggled to move the ball, gaining only 3 first downs in the 1st half.

After a short punt, Indiana marched down for a TD to take a 13-3 lead. Iowa fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and the Hoosiers added another FG. Bo Porter picked off a pass in the end zone to keep the game in reach. The defense struggled to stop the running game of Indiana and Brett Law, who rushed for 144 yards. The defense was able to block a 38-yard FG in the 4th quarter to keep hope alive.

The offense was finally able to move the ball and drove to the Indiana 4-yard line. On 4th and goal, a screen pass to Ryan Terry resulted in Iowa's first TD, and cut the deficit to 16-10, but with only 2 minutes left in the game, there wasn't enough time to get the ball back.

Iowa  vs  Tulsa   Tulsa

W    26 - 25 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Down 25-18 with 6 minutes remaining, the Hawks were backed up on their own 4-yard line. Iowa began a 14- play drive that took the Hawkeyes into scoring position. On 4th and 2 at Tulsa's 2-yard line, tailback Ryan Terry swept left, faked like he was going to pass, and then raced around the end to score a touchdown with :53 seconds remaining. Trailing by one, Iowa went for the win. QB Paul Burmeister tossed a rainbow pass into the right corner of the end zone to TE Scott Slutzker, who kept his feet in-bounds, and Iowa took a 1-point lead. The defense held on for the win with two batted down passes from Maurea Crain.

Iowa struggled on offense to get in the end zone. Todd Romano tied a school record with 4 FGs, including a 53-yarder. Freshman punter Nick Gallery had a booming 69-yard punt to switch field positions late in the 3rd quarter. Sedrick Shaw was also explosive with a 75-yard kickoff return and some long runs from scrimmage.

Defensively, the Hawks struggled to stop Tulsa WR Chris Penn, who caught 7 passes for 149 yards and 2 touchdowns, but did pick off QB Gus Ferrotte four times in the game.

Iowa  @  #4 Michigan   Michigan

L    28 - 52 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Iowa couldn't stop Michigan's powerful offense, led by Tyrone Wheatley, who rushed for a career-high 224 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries. The Wolverines scored a touchdown on their first 3 possessions, and were up 31-0 in the 2nd quarter. The officials didn't give Iowa many breaks either, but it probably would not have changed the outcome. The Hawks fought back, but it was too little too late, and they suffered quite a few injuries.

QB Jim Hartlieb was harrassed by the Wolverines all day, and finished with 25 completions in 39 attempts for 308 yards and three touchdowns, but had 3 interceptions.

Note: I have a bad copy of the full game that would require some editing if someone wants to assist.

Iowa  @  #10 Colorado   Colorado

L    12 - 28

Colorado led 14-12, but broke the game open with two fourth-quarter touchdown passes by Koy Detmer (who replaced Kordell Stewart). Detmer threw touchdown passes of 10 yards to Christian Fauria, 31 yards to Michael Westbrook and 74 yards to Charles Johnson. Detmer is the younger brother of 1990 Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer (Iowa tied 13-13 in last year's Holiday Bowl).

The Hawkeyes intercepted two passes and recovered two fumbles in the first half, but was only able to get 6 points on two Andy Kreider field goals, and trailed 7-6 at halftime.

The veteran Iowa offensive line struggled against the rush, and gave up 10 QB sacks on the day. Iowa forced 6 turnovers, but could not capitalize on the Colorado miscues.

Colorado finished 9-2-1 on the season and lost to Syracuse in the Fiesta Bowl.

The full game video starts with 13 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, and it cuts off with 1 minute left in the game. Andy Kreider kicked a 32-yard FG to take an early 3-0 lead, which is not shown.

Gino Torretta (Heisman Trophy winner that season) wrote his name into the Kinnick Stadium record books with a 433-yard passing performance for the co-defending National Champions. Miami had to practice all week in Vero Beach because Hurricane Andrew knocked the team out of its facilities, and a collection was made during the game to raise money for those impacted by the disaster.

Iowa QB Jim Hartlieb went 26 of 38 passes for 266 yards, including a 31-yard scoring strike to Harold Jasper with 5:30 remaining in the game. The game was billed as "A Night To Remember" to commemorate the first game under the lights in Kinnick Stadium history.

Iowa's attempt to become the winningest team in Hawkeye history came up just short at the hands of Ty Detmer and Brigham Young. The 1990 Heisman Trophy winner passed for 350 yards in rallying the Cougars back from a 13-0 halftime deficit. Iowa built its lead on two touchdown runs by Mike Saunders. Saunders joined Iowa's exclusive 1,000-yard in a season club. All-American defensive end Leroy Smith was injured in the first half and never returned to the Iowa lineup. BYU had a chance to win the game with under 30 seconds to play. The Cougars had a first down on the Iowa 18-yard line with the score tied. However, Detmer's final pass was intercepted by Carlos James at the goal line. The Hawkeyes finished the season ranked 10th in both the AP and CNN/USA Today polls with a 10-1-1 record, but the tie also prevented Iowa from having it's first 11 win season.

Saunders would tack on a 26 yard score to match fullback Lew Montgomery's 2 TD's.

The Hawks key road triumphs weren't finished as they traveled to Champaign, Illinois. Against an Illinois team that had the inside track to the Rose Bowl and was ranked 1st in the Big Ten in defense, Iowa put together one of their best offensive games in the Fry era, especially for a key road game. The Hawkeyes used an early fumble by the Illini to begin an exhibition by RB Nick Bell, the likes of which had rarely been seen in the Big 10 between two undefeated teams (in conference play). Bell literally ran over the Illini, scampering for 130 yards in the 1st quarter alone. The Hawks led by an amazing 28-0 early in the second quarter, and they stretched it to 44-14 by the end of the 3rd quarter, before settling for a 54-28 final. The Hawks rushed for 335 yards and had 540 yards of total offense. Matt Rodgers passed for 2 touchdowns (11 for 16 for 188 yards), and ran for a 3rd score.

After a win over (what ended up being cellar-dweller) Wisconsin at home, Iowa traveled to the Big House in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines were still smarting after a tight, tough loss the previous week against Michigan State and it was Homecoming week. But Iowa kept it close throughout. Following a botched two-point conversion by the Wolverines after they had taken a 20-10 lead, the Hawkeyes went to work. Following one Hawkeye touchdown countered by a Michigan field goal, the Hawkeyes put together a drive for the ages, never facing a third-down. Tony Stewart grabbed the last of a series of key passes from Matt Rodgers with one hand, giving the Hawkeyes the ball at the Michigan 1-yard-line. Paul Kujawa ran it in from there, and with the extra point, the Hawks took the lead by the eventual final score of 24-23. A sack by Moses Santos and an interception by linebacker John Derby sealed the stunner. It was Michigan's first loss on Homecoming since the 1967 season.

Cincinnati scored its last points of the game with a late field goal and ended the half with Iowa up 28-10. After halftime, Iowa went on cruise control. Iowa went on to score 21 points in the 3rd and 14 in the 4th to win the contest 63-10. Rodgers ended the game going 15-27 on passes with 191 yards.

After surrendering a 23-yard field goal by Hawaii's Jason Elam with 1:36 left in the game, Iowa quickly drove to the Hawaii 20-yard line with 48 seconds remaining. A false start penalty pushed the Hawkeyes back five yards, then a devastating holding penalty wiped out a potential go-ahead touchdown from Chuck Hartlieb to Travis Watkins with 40 seconds left. After converting from the same distance midway through the 4th quarter, freshman kicker Jeff Skillett left a 44-yard field goal attempt short that would have tied the game with 17 seconds on the clock.

Iowa's defense and special teams scored two touchdowns and FB David Hudson tallied on a short run in the fourth period to rally the Hawkeyes to a 20-19 triumph over Wyoming in the 10th Holiday Bowl.

Houghtlin again came in this time for a 21-yard FG. He later added a 19-yard FG. Richard Bass added a 2-yard run for Iowa's only touchdown.

Arizona had a chance to take the lead with 4:54 left in the game and Iowa leading 15-14, but Gary Coston, the nation's second most accurate field goal kicker last season, missed from 46 yards.

Iowa, which tried three quarterbacks, came back on two touchdowns by Kevin Harmon and a field goal by Rob Houghtlin to lead, 22-17.

The Hawks entered Columbus ranked #1, but hadn't won there since 1959. Iowa's undefeated season was washed away on a rainy night in Ohio Stadium. Ohio State blocked a punt early in the game for a safety (after an Iowa interception near the goal line), and a 57-yard TD run put them up 12-0. OSU added another FG after an interception. Ronnie Harmon scored on a short TD run to make it 15-7 at halftime.

In the 4th quarter, Jay Norvell intercepted a pass and returned it all the way to the OSU 19. Iowa went for it on 4th-and-1 at the 10 but were stopped.

Iowa was trying to rally in the final minutes, but a Chris Spielman INT (his second of the game and Chuck Long's 4th pick of the night) ended the game. He completed 17 of 34 passes for only 169 yards. Watch a distorted full game version here.
