LINCOLN, NEBRASKA – The conclusion of the modern day Big Ten west as we know it did not disappoint as the Iowa Hawkeyes secured their 10th win of the season 13-10 over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Along with that, the Hawkeyes got a little revenge on Nebraska as the loss today officially keeps Nebraska out of a bowl game.
In true Iowa/Nebraska fashion, this one came down to one final play. Hawkeyes with the ball after a chaotic closing two minutes that included interceptions from both team.s
That’s when Central Michigan transfer Marshall Meeder came into the game for the first time as a Hawkeye and made the 38-yarder to win the game, his first kick in a game in over a year.
Today’s total point projection was the lowest in the history of college football at 24.5. Somehow, someway, that number still was not enough for the total to go over that mark.
A couple big plays from both teams and Nebraska turnovers did this best to cover that number in the first half.
