The Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa St. Cyclones gave the young college football season its first triple-overtime shootout in a contest that could be this series' last in Ames for a while. And Iowa State, which might find itself without a major conference soon, took home the really boring new Cy-Hawk Trophy, 44-41.
The Hawks forced the (counting ...) seventh frame when Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg passed to Keenan Davis for a 23-yard squirt of a touchdown to counter a touchdown scoot by ISU's James White. But the third OT began with the Cyclones holding Iowa to a Mike Meyer field goal, setting up sudden death.
White took advantage, banging in a four-yard touchdown to close out a memorable game that never really should've gotten this far. The Cyclones ended up outgaining Iowa 472 to 363, but turned the ball over thrice.
