There is big boy college football on TV today. Or at least, there’s Power 5 college football being played and maybe even some of it on TV today. None of it will feature the Iowa Hawkeyes. But our weekly re-watch is marching on to give you some semblance of normalcy in the abnormal times.
So, as with a week ago, we’re re-watching a great Iowa game from the Ferentz era. Unlike last week, we actually have a full game to watch rather than some stinking highlights (and let’s be honest, the “highlights” of the UNI 2009 game were basically two blocked field goals as time expired). Feel free to use the link below to watch whenever you like, but this is going to be a lot more enjoyable for everyone if we’re participating together, watching the game at it’s original time and hitting the game thread as you would in a normal game. Or not. There is live college football today. Sigh.

Heading into this one, the entire staff was taking the Hawks (shocker). We are smart people and you should all strive to be more like us. However, I don’t think any of us envisioned it going quite the way it did and if anyone had said Iowa State would score as much as they did, we would have all been on the Cyclones.
When you’re all set on the game watch, be sure to check out aftermath. We’ll leave these up on the homepage through the weekend, as we did last week. Enjoy. Play nice. Embrace the hate.
