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.

#24 Iowa  @  Minnesota   Minnesota

W    43 - 24 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

It took a second-half scoring blitz, but 24th-ranked Iowa overcame a Minnesota comeback to knock off the Gophers 43-24, securing it's second consecutive bowl trip and retaining Floyd of Rosedale for the fourth-straight year. Iowa took a quick 17-0 lead midway through the second quarter in workman-like fashion, but Minnesota, boasting a lethal yet erratic offense, stormed back with 10 points in the second and seven to start the third to tie the game at 17. Iowa responded with a scoring barrage of its own. Richard Willock's fumble recovery in the end zone for a touchdown after Michael Burger had carried 64-yards to the one-yard line, gave Iowa the lead. The Hawkeye defense recorded a a safety after a bad Minnesota snap, and the offense followed with Matt Sherman's 53-yard scoring bomb to Tim Dwight, giving Iowa a 33-17 lead with two minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Hawkeyes, who improved to 8-3 and 6-2 in the Big Ten, added a Zach Bromert field goal and a 14-yard run from Sedrick Shaw, his second of the game, to put the game away. Shaw gained 108 yards on the night to catapult himself beyond 1,000 yards rushing for the year - his third-straight. His first score, a five-yard run in the first quarter, also pushed him past Ronnie Harmon as Iowa's all-time leading touchdown scorer.

Iowa  vs  Wisconsin   Wisconsin

W    31 - 0 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Sedrick Shaw rushed for 143 yards and 3 touchdowns, defensive end Bill Ennis-Inge had 4 sacks, forced two fumbles, and fell on a loose ball. Iowa had it's first shutout since 1992.

Iowa dominated Wisconsin in every phase of the game enroute to a 31-0 victory. It was Iowa's first shutout since blanking Indiana (14-0) in 1992. In his final game at Kinnick Stadium, Ennis-Inge left his mark on the scoreboard as well as Wisconsin quarterback Mike Samuel. He recorded a career-best four quarterback sacks, forced two fumbles (which led to Iowa scores) and recovered a fumble. Iowa's defense held Wisconsin to 128 total yards, including only 26 net rushing yards. The Badgers crossed midfield only once all day against a fired-up Iowa defense. Coming into the game, the Badgers averaged 27 points and 222 yards rushing per contest. At halftime, Wisconsin had just two first downs (none for the game's first 25 minutes) and 35 total yards - four rushing. They were able to completely shut down the dominant Badger running back Ron Dayne all day long. Also playing his final game at Kinnick Stadium, Sedrick Shaw gave himself a brithday worth remembering by scoring on runs 29, 33, and eight yards. The three touchdowns tied Ronnie Harmon's career touchdown record of 32. Shaw finished with 143 yards on the ground. Matt Sherman had his best day of the year, completing his first 10 passes enroute to a 12-for-17 game and 99 yards. Iowa improved to 7-3 and tied for third in the conference to keep it's bowl hopes alive.

#23 Iowa  vs  #18 Northwestern   Northwestern

L    13 - 40 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

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. Vernon Rollins had his best game of the season defensively with 12 stops.

#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.

#20 Iowa  vs  #2 Ohio State   Ohio State

L    26 - 38 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Expectations were high with College Game Day in attendance, but the Hawks got down quickly 31-6 at halftime and 38-6 early in the 3rd quarter due to 3 interceptions, one fumble, and one blocked punt for a TD. Later in the 3rd quarter, they finally got into the end zone on a 19-yard reverse run by Tim Dwight. That propelled a series of exciting punt returns from Dwight, including a 86-yard TD, and he nearly duplicated the feat on the next punt return as he single-handedly tried to get the Hawkeyes back in the game. He had 199 all-purpose yards, but the 20 point second half wasn't enough. Dwight's 1996 return yardage of 394 broke Nile Kinnick's school record of 322, set in 1937. On defense, Damien Robinson paced the Hawkeyes with eight tackles.

Iowa  @  #10 Penn State   Penn State

W    21 - 20 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

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. Trailing 20-14 at halftime, Iowa's defense got stronger, limiting the Nittany Lions to just 73 yards over the final 2 quarters. 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. Defensive back Kerry Cooks setup Iowa's final score when his sack of quarterback Wally Richardson forced a fumble (which Iowa recovered). The win was Iowa's first over a Top 10 ranked team since a 54-28 win over 5th-ranked Illinois in 1990. Damien Robinson led the Hawkeyes with 10 tackles, while Matt Hughes added 9.

Iowa  @  Indiana   Indiana

W    31 - 10 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Following several first-half mistakes, Iowa's offense got back on track for 21 third-quarter points on the way to a 31-10 victory. The Hawkeyes, behind a potent passing attack, marched beyond midfield three times in the first half only to have the drives end on a fumble, blocked kick and an interception. Iowa tied the game at seven on Tavian Banks' 9-yard run, and the Hawkeyes capped a nine play, 65-yard drive with a 32-yard Zach Bromert field goal for a 10-7 halftime lead. Indiana tied the contest before Iowa charged back to score again on Banks' 16-yard scoring run. Tom Knight gave the Hawkeyes a little breathing room with a 57-yard scoring off an interception return. It was almost a replay of his 60-yard return for a score at Kinnick Stadium the year before last year. Banks ended Iowa's scoring on a 28-yard romp at the end of the third quarter. Banks finished with 80 yards on 15 carries and three touchdowns, while Matt Sherman passed for a season-high 243 yards. Matt Hughes led Iowa defensively with 10 tackles and two sacks while Damien Robinson had six tackles and an interception.

Iowa  vs  Michigan State   Michigan State

W    37 - 30 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Iowa matched its biggest comeback ever in the Hayden Fry era and one of the biggest in school history. Fresh off the upset loss at Tulsa, they fell behind 17-0 in the first quarter without even a first down. Things got back on track when Matt Sherman found Demo Odems on a 54-yard pass play on 3rd and 22 from the Iowa 10-yard line on the last play of the first quarter. Sherman then hit tightened Chris Knipper on a 35-yarder to cut the margin to 10. The Spartans struck back with a 41-yard touchdown aerial with just over a minute left in the first half. The second half was all Iowa as the defense and special teams took over. Tom Knight intercepted Burke on the third play of the third quarter. Sherman again found Knipper for a nine-yard score to cut the lead to 23-16. The defense held before Tim Dwight broke free on a 46-yard punt return. Sherman hit Sedrick Shaw with a five-yard pass to tie the game at 23. Michigan State answered with an 11-play, 75-yard drive to go ahead 30-23. Iowa countered with two one-yard touchdown runs from Tavian Banks and Michael Burger to seal the come-from-behind win. Defensively, Knight and Damien Robinson had interceptions while Vernon Rollins recorded 10 tackles. Matt Hughes finished with nine tackles and Kerry Cooks had eight. The Spartans were coached by Nick Saban.

#19 Iowa  @  Tulsa   Tulsa

L    20 - 27 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Iowa's first road trip wasn't what the doctor ordered as Tulsa was able to delight the home crowd with a 27-20 upset. Sedrick Shaw, who didn't start for the first time in 28 games, rumbled in from eight yards out to put Iowa in front. Tulsa answered with 10 straight points. Iowa started the second quarter the way it began the game as the Hawkeyes marched down the field on the strength of a 50-yard run by Shaw. Tim Dwight gave Iowa its second lead with his four-yard reception from Matt Sherman. The Tulsa passing game came to life in the second half as John Fitzgerald hit Damon Savage on back-to-back strikes of 59 and 13 yards. Reggie Williams took it in two plays later to put Tulsa up for good, 20-17. Fitzgerald, who finished with 357 yards passing, connected with Caswell for 31 yards to set up Tulsa's final score. Zach Bromert narrowed the margin to 27-20 with his 38-yard field goal at the start of the fourth, but Tulsa stopped Iowa twice on fourth down inside the Golden Hurricane 10-yard line in the final quarter. Damien Robinson notched 12 tackles in the game and also had an interception. Matt Hughes, Tom Knight and Vernon Rollins each recorded nine tackles. This game is considered one of the worst upsets of Hayden Fry's career at Iowa.

#21 Iowa  vs  Iowa State   Iowa State

W    38 - 13 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Highlights start around 6 minutes into the video. With nine seconds remaining in the first quarter, Tavian Banks broke through the Iowa State defense for an 89-yard scoring run- the longest of his career - to put Iowa up 7-0. The Hawkeyes never looked back as they went on to beat the Cyclones for the 14th-consecutive year, 38-13. Banks, who went on to post a career-high 182 yards on 18 carries, finished with three rushing touchdowns. His efforts won him Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors, Tim Dwight finally broke loose for a score, but not through the air. The junior receiver charged through the middle for a 5-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Matt Sherman also connected with Damon Gibson for a 42-yard score, their second in as many games. The Iowa defense, which played so well the previous week against Arizona, held Heisman Trophy candidate Troy Davis to 152 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown. Iowa State managed just 290 yards - 61 in the first half- while the Hawkeyes totaled 536. Matt Hughes led Iowa with eight solo tackles while Damien Robinson added six and Plez Atkins five.

#22 Iowa  vs  Arizona   Arizona

W    21 - 20 

Head Coach: Hayden Fry

Iowa took a page from Arizona vaunted "Desert Swarm" defensive game book to record three turnovers - all resulting in touchdowns - to edge the Wildcats 21-20. The Hawkeyes spotted Arizona and early 7-0 lead on Mike Lucky's one-yard scoring catch in the first quarter before turning up the heat. In a 30-second time span, the Iowa defense forced two fumbles near the Arizona goal line. Linebacker Vernon Rollins pounced on a fumble in the end zone for Iowa's first score. Ten seconds later, Bill Ennis-Inge caused another fumble by Wildcat quarterback Brady Batten. Iowa quarterback Matt Sherman connected with Damon Gibson two plays later to put Iowa up for good, 14-7. Tom Knight intercepted Keith Smith on the first play of the third quarter to set up a Sedrick Shaw touchdown six plays later, breaking an Iowa record with his 25th career touchdown. He finished with 115 yards on 23 carries, a rare feat against Arizona.

Arizona narrowed the margin to 21-20 on a 39-yard Matt Peyton field goal, but Iowa used most of the remaining eight minutes with a time-consuming drive. Rollins finished the game with eight tackles and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. Hughes added six tackles and Ennis-Inge had five tackles and two sacks. Iowa had 2 turnovers, but forced 5 turnovers on Arizona.
