IOWA HAWKEYES NEWS

Iowa recalls the goosebumps of 1981, searching for the glories of the late 1950s

When the 2015 Iowa Hawkeyes take the field for the Rose Bowl game this Friday, they’ll certainly attempt to win for themselves, to achieve something in the present moment. Yet, as much as every competition is about the opponent and the opportunity in front of one’s nose, some games have a way of reaching more deeply into a community’s history. Such is the case for Iowa when...

Iowa's first Rose Bowl in 25 years is a dream fulfilled

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Rose Bowl has a lavish list of cool pregame traditions, and the Iowa Hawkeyes are embracing them all during their school's long-awaited week in the sun. The Hawkeyes have explored Disneyland, taken in Hollywood night life and eaten disturbing amounts of prime rib at Lawry's in Beverly Hills. Yet they also practiced on Christmas, showing they haven't forgotten...

Kirk Ferentz is the right man for Iowa, and not just because of this season

Kirk Ferentz has been infamous among the college football pundit world for being an unfireable (I know, I know, I made up a word) coach. He parlayed success early in his coaching career into a buyout the university could not afford, and everyone knew it. His critics pointed out that since then, he produced nowhere near the same level of results which justified the contract. For years...

Christian McCaffrey scores touchdown on first play of Rose Bowl (Video)

Stanford’s jack-of-all-trades Christian McCaffrey is on a mission to stick it to all the Heisman voters who cast their ballots for Derrick Henry over him. On the first play from scrimmage in Friday’s Rose Bowl against the Iowa Hawkeyes, the AP Player of the Year caught a pass over the middle from quarterback Kevin Hogan and proceeded to scamper for a 75-yard touchdown. Christian...

    Things aren’t going great for Iowa at the Rose Bowl, but the Hawkeyes fans who made the trip to Pasadena will at least fondly remember Tom Arnold’s appearance on Friday. The actor and comedian, who attended Iowa, was interviewed on the stadium big screen during a timeout, and, well, it didn’t matter that his team was down 35-0 before halftime. Tom Arnold is pumped...

WATCH: Iowa QB C.J Beathard Swarmed On By Stanford Defense For A Sack

Stanford's offense is going to get a lot of deserved attention for its play in the Rose Bowl, but the offense is not the only unit playing well. The special teams are of course (McCaffrey's punt return), but the defense has also turned in a pretty dominant performance.As long as they keep swarming on C.J. Beathard like this Iowa doesn't have a chance at making this look respectable...

Iowa gets Christian McCaffery’d in Rose Bowl loss

Many thought Stanford running back/wide receiver/returner Christian McCaffery was the best player in college football during 2015. He didn’t win the Heisman Trophy, but was given the AP Player of the Year award. As the new year rang in, the sophomore had a chance to prove the voters who missed on him wrong and the AP voters who gave him that honor correct. It took all of one play...

Stanford obliterates Iowa from start to finish in the Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl likes its own time slot, but even its committee had to be wishing it could move the Sugar Bowl up in starting time just to have something interesting to watch. Stanford dismantled Iowa from the very beginning (literally, a 75-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey on the first play of the game) to end, which arrived sometime in the second quarter, one that saw...

Stanford band trolls Iowa with 'Farmers Only' halftime show

The Rose Bowl started off with a bang thanks to Heisman Trophy finalist and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey’s electrifying 75-yard touchdown catch. But the rout was on by halftime, as the Cardinal had built a 35-point lead over the Iowa Hawkeyes — much to Carly Fiorina’s dismay. Things only got worse for Hawkeyes fans during the break, although this time Stanford’s...

Random Stanford bro hijacks Christian McCaffrey Rose Bowl interview

The Rose Bowl was over before it started with Stanford and Heisman runner-up Christian McCaffrey running wild over the Iowa Hawkeyes, winning 45-16.  The game wasn’t even really that close, either.  (Thanks for the jinx, Carly Fiorina.) The only reason worth watching the second half was to see if McCaffrey could break the all-purpose yardage record for the Rose Bowl.  He did...

After Rose Bowl loss, Iowa has plenty of wins to remember

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) It will be hard to forget how the season ended for the Iowa Hawkeyes, but they'll always remember their sensational start that nearly put then in the College Football Playoff. Iowa's surprising 12-0 run before losses in the Big Ten title game and the Rose Bowl surely can be a rallying point for next season. And the losses - one on a late touchdown, the other...

Hawkeyes Trap Boilers 70-63, Spoil Mount’s Return

The refs were atrocious. Iowa players are still holding AJ. Mike Gesell falls down when his cat bumps him. The refs stole a timeout. Adam Woodbury moves on all his screens. When Morgan Burke stepped on the floor at halftime, you could see the gloom spreading from his footprints like the Grinch stealing joy from Whoville. Someone stole Painter’s car.
