1996-1997 Iowa Football Year in Review

<< 1995-1996
1997-1998 >>


Summary: Iowa posted a 9-3 overall record, concluding the season with a 27-0 win over Texas Tech in the Builders Square Alamo Bowl. A nice win in the opener over Arizona got the season off to a good start, but an upset loss on the road at Tulsa and falling behind early against Michigan State put the season in jeopardy. Iowa rallied to defeat the Spartans, and a 21-20 win at Penn State highlighted the Big Ten season as Iowa placed third in the league with a 6-2 record. Iowa was ranked 18th in the final AP and CNN/USA Today rankings and Tim Dwight and Jared DeVries earned All-American recognition.

Conference: Big Ten

Head Coach: Hayden Fry
