SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Nov. 16, 1996
A smothering Iowa defense limited Wisconsin to only two first downs and 35 rushing yards in the first half and eventually won, 31-0. Playing his final game in Kinnick Stadium, Sedrick Shaw celebrated his birthday by scoring on three touchdown runs and tying Ronnie Harmon's career touchdown record of 32.

Nov. 19, 1994
Iowa and Minnesota exploded for a combined 1,000 total yards and 13 touchdowns in a 49-42 Hawkeye win. Tim Dwight was responsible for an Iowa trick play — flipping a touchdown pass to quarterback Matt Sherman in Sherman's first career start.

Nov. 14, 1987
A wild game in Columbus saw the lead change six times. With 16 seconds to go, Iowa quarterback Chuck Hartlieb threw a 28-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-23 to beat Ohio State, 29-27. It was Hayden Fry's first victory in Ohio Stadium and Iowa's first win in Columbus since 1959.

Nov. 19, 1960
Iowa shut out Notre Dame, 28-0, in South Bend, beating the Irish for the fourth time in five seasons. It was Forest Evashevski's last game as a coach. Evashevski had won Coach of the Year honors four times, compiled a 52-27-4 record, and won two outright conference titles and two Rose Bowls.

Nov. 17, 1956
Iowa snapped two Ohio State streaks on this day — 18-straight Big Ten wins and three-straight conference crowns in a 6-0 win that sent the Hawkeyes to the Rose Bowl. Head coach Forest Evashevski had posted a sign in the locker room before the game, "You have 60 minutes to play the game Saturday — and the rest of your life to remember it."
