Review by Publisher Summary 1

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.
