In a series that explores the logic-defying comebacks and tough losses, the dramatic interceptions, fumbles, game-winning field goals, and touchdowns that shape a fan’s greatest memories of their beloved team, this book does not disappoint as the ultimate collector’s item for Hawkeyes fans. It chronicles the most famous moments in the University of Iowa’s football history, including Warren Holloway's miraculous game-ending catch in the Capital One Bowl; "The Kick," Rob Houghtlin's game-winning 29-yard field goal against Michigan in 1985; Gordon Locke's one-yard touchdown plunge to hand Notre Dame their first loss in three years; and Chuck Long's touchdown run in the closing minute to clinch a comeback win over Michigan State. The descriptions of each play are accompanied with game information and quotes from participants, players, and observers with firsthand accounts.
