Big Ten Co-ChampionsBig Ten Co-Champions

Summary: After starting 7–1 and rising to #6 in the polls, Iowa finished the season with an 8–4 record (6–2 Big Ten), winning a four-way tie for the Big Ten Conference championship by defeating the three other teams atop the conference standings – Michigan, Michigan State, and Illinois – in their respective head-to-head matchups. Only a last-second loss to Ohio State kept the Hawkeyes from winning the Big Ten title outright.The Hawkeyes earned their third trip to Pasadena in ten years, but fell behind early in the 1991 Rose Bowl and lost 46–34 to the Washington Huskies. It would be another 25 years before Iowa would make a return trip to the Rose Bowl.

Conference: Big Ten

Head Coach: Hayden Fry
