Review by Publisher Summary 4

The place to be on football Saturdays in Iowa is Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, where the Iowa Hawkeyes are the state''s No. 1 fall attraction. Veteran sportswriter Buck Turnbull takes you through the highs and lows of Hawkeye football--from the unbeaten teams coached by Howard Jones in the 1920s, the amazing 1939 Ironmen and their Heisman Trophy winner, Nile Kinnick, and through the great years of Forest Evashevski and Hayden Fry. Now there is a new coaching star at the Hawkeye helm, Kirk Ferentz, and you''ll read about the sensational turnaround he''s made by fielding three straight Top 10 teams in 2002, 2003 and 2004. Iowa''s dramatic victory in the 2005 Capital One Bowl was one for the ages--an incredible touchdown pass on the last play of the game. This is a book of stories, pictures and anecdotes that Iowa fans will treasure forever.
