SUMMARY VIDEO


2020-2021 Iowa Football Year in Review
<< 2019-20202021-2022 >>

After multiple former Iowa players spoke out about racial disparities in the football program over the summer, 20-year strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle was let go, and an independent investigation concluded that there were valid allegations against some of the current coaches, along with a problem with black players not finishing the program or graduating.

Due to the pandemic, the Big Ten conference canceled the season on August 11th, but later restarted and shortened the season on September 16th. The season was reduced from 12 games to 9 (in-conference games only), and pushed back the start until Oct 24th.

After starting the season 0-2 after two close losses, the Hawks bounced back in resounding fashion, winning their last 6 games to end 6-2 on the season without having any games canceled.

During the Champions Week game, the game in Iowa City was canceled due to COVID issues with Michigan. Iowa was invited to the Music City Bowl to play Missouri, but they also had COVID issues and were not able to compete. The bowl game was canceled on Dec 27th.

#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.

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.
