#13 Iowa  vs  Illinois   Illinois

W    41 - 10 

Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz

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.

Iowa  @  Illinois   Illinois

W    37 - 14 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Iowa uses a record setting performance by placekicker Tim Douglas and a solid defense to take a 37-14 win at Illinois. Douglas tied an NCAA record with three field goals of over 50 yards in one game (51, 58 and 51 yards). The 58-yarder is the longest in Iowa history and the ninth longest in Big Ten history. Iowa's previous best was 56 yards by Tom Nichol. The Iowa defense held Illinois scoreless until the final eight minutes. Illinois had just 40 yards total offense in the first half. After three quarters the Illini had just 34 yards passing on five completions. Iowa's balanced attack included 151 rushing yards and 139 through the air. Iowa also got a 57-yard punt return for a score from Kahil Hill. Defensive back Joe Slattery returned an interception 47 yards for a touchdown, RB Ladell Betts rushed 13 times for 56 yards and a score and Kahlil Hill had a 51-yard scoring reception from QB Kyle McCann. DB Eric Thigpen had seven tackles and an interception and DT Ed Saidat had six tackles and recovered an Illini fumble. Iowa recorded six sacks in the game.

#25 Iowa  @  Illinois   Illinois

W    31 - 21 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

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. The win kept Iowa in second place in the conference.

Iowa  vs  Illinois   Illinois

L    7 - 26 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Unable to get the running game on track, Iowa suffered its third consecutive loss at the hands of Illinois by a score of 26-7. After falling behind 3-0 in the first quarter, Matt Sherman hooked up with Tim Dwight for a 12-yard touchdown pass early in the second period to take a 7-3 lead. That would be the last score for Iowa, as the Illinois defense would take charge, limiting to Iowa to just 20 yards rushing for the day, including only four in the second half. Illinois scored a touchdown with 2:35 remaining in the first half to take the lead for good. Illinois scored two touchdowns and a field goal in the second half and shut down the Iowa offense to cap the 19-point win. Sherman threw for 223 yards in the game, but hurled four final quarter interceptions. The inability to stop the run was again Iowa achilles heel as the Illini rushed for 244 yards, including 152 in the second half. Linebacker Bobby Diaco led the team with 13 tackles, including three tackles for loss.

Iowa  @  Illinois   Illinois

L    7 - 47 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Somehow the injury list got even longer after this mismatch against the top-rated Illini defense. With Parker Wlideman as Iowa's only first-team defensive lineman available, the Hawkeyes looked helpless, giving up 478 total offensive yards. They also struggled on offense, with QB Mike Duprey being sacked 5 times during the game. They lost two more quarterbacks in the game when Duprey and Corby Smith left with injuries. Jefferson Bates came in, but was not able to throw very far. He did complete a 1-yard TD pass to punter/TE Nick Gallery for Iowa's only score late in the game.

The game was similar to last year's 49-3 loss to Illinois. Iowa has lost 5 straight conference games, repeating last year's feat.

Illinois kicker Chris Richardson made FGs of 52 and 48 yards, and Robert Holcombe rushed for 101 yards.

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

The Hawks were shut down offensively during Homecoming, and Illinois' offense and defense looked like a top caliber team, not a 1-4 team. Iowa's early offensive possessions resulted in a fumble, turnover on downs (4th and 1) and a safety after an errant snap. At the start of the 2nd half, Iowa fumbled again on their own 2-yard line, setting up another Illini TD. The next possession resulted in an interception. The Hawkeyes' only score came on a Todd Romano 35-yard field goal with two seconds left in the second quarter.

#13 Iowa  @  #5 Illinois   Illinois

W    54 - 28 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

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.

Eddie Phillips had a big day, rushing for 158 yards and a big play late in the game. Halfback passes by Phillips and J.C. Love Jordan and a fake field goal first down run by holder Tom Grogan. Two of the biggest plays were saved for late in the game.

The first was by Eddie Phillips who took a third and 29 handoff from Chuck Long and ran 30 yards for the first down with only two to three minutes left in the game.

After Iowa’s drive stalled just inside Illinois territory, Tom Nichol was called upon to pooch kick, rolling the ball out of bounds inside the Illinois one yard line. The Illini went four and out, the students stormed the field and the Hawks had a 14-13 upset.

It was the first Big Ten game of the season for both teams. Gordon Locke scored the only Hawkeye touchdown and a safety made the difference in an 8–7 Iowa win. The Hawkeyes had also defeated the Illini in the 1921 Big Ten opener for both teams. It was the first time Illinois had lost consecutive Big Ten openers since 1908 and 1909.

The Illini were two years removed from a national championship in 1919. The 1921 team had already beaten South Dakota by the score of 52–0. Thousands of Hawkeye alumni, including a man from Panama and another from Trinidad, returned to Iowa Field to see Iowa beat Illinois for the first time since 1907 by the score of 14–2. Gordon Locke had his best game of the season, carrying the ball 37 times and rushing for 202 yards, a Hawkeye record.

The Hawkeyes were amusingly convinced that it was a rabbit that had jinxed the team in their previous game loss against Wisconsin. Before their Wednesday practice for the weekend's Illinois game, the team had a rabbit hunt. Coach Mark Catlin found and shot the unlucky rabbit, and before the game with Illinois, the members of the Hawkeye team rubbed the dead rabbit's left hind foot for good luck.
