IOWA BOWL ELIGIBLE AGAIN
The Iowa football team is bowl eligible for the 11th straight season under Coach
Kirk Ferentz and his staff.
The Hawkeyes have appeared in nine bowl games since 2001, including a win
over 12th-ranked Missouri in the 2010 Insight Bowl. Iowa won the Outback Bowl
over South Carolina following the 2008 season and concluded the 2009 campaign
with a win over Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl.
Iowa is one of four programs in the nation to conclude each of the past three
seasons with a bowl win (Florida, Florida State and South Florida) and the three-
game bowl win streak is an Iowa record.
The Hawkeyes have posted a 6-3 record in bowl games under Ferentz, including
wins in four of six January bowl games.
IOWA WON 2010 INSIGHT BOWL
Iowa used a 72-yard interception return by DB Micah Hyde in the fourth quarter to
regain the lead as the Hawkeyes posted a 27-24 win over 12th-ranked Missouri in
the 2010 Insight Bowl. The Hawkeyes scored on their rst possession of the game
and led 17-10 at halftime. Iowa increased its advantage to 20-10 before Missouri
scored two straight touchdowns to take its rst lead. Hydes interception return
provided the nal points of the game. Following are a few additional game notes:
The attendance of 53,453 at the 2010 game established an Insight Bowl record.
The previous mark of 49,385 was set in Tucson (Dec. 26, 1987) when the event
was the Copper Bowl. Arizona defeated New Mexico, 20-14.
Iowa RB Marcus Coker, who was named the 2010 Insight Bowl Offensive Player
of the Game, rushed 33 times for 219 yards, while establishing career bests in
both categories. Coker set an Iowa bowl record with his rushing attempts and
yardage. Bob Jeters total of 194 yards (nine attempts) vs. California in the 1959
Rose Bowl was the previous record for yards. The previous record of 29 rush-
ing attempts was set by Shonn Greene vs. South Carolina in the 2009 Outback
Bowl.
Cokers 33 attempts in the 2010 Insight Bowl were the second most by a running
back in Insight Bowl history, while the 219 rushing yards rank third.
Coker was the rst Hawkeye to rush for over 200 yards in game since Shonn
Greene rushed 30 times for 211 yards vs. Purdue (11/15/08). His rushing total
of 219 yards ranks sixth-best in a single-game in Hawkeye history. The 33 car-
ries ties for the eighth most in a game.
Coker had a 62-yard touchdown run in the second period. That run is the
longest of Cokers career and was Iowas longest touchdown run of 2010.
IOWAS ACADEMIC SUCCESS
In the NCAAs most recent release on academic standing, Iowas football team
ranks eighth nationally with a 2011 Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 83 percent.
Kirk Ferentzs squad is one of only nine bowl-bound teams to score 80 percent or
better on the NCAAs real-time measurement of academic success.
The Hawkeyes rank third among the 10 Big Ten Conference teams scheduled
to participate in a bowl game later this month or early in January, 2012. The Big
Ten is also the only conference with more than one team at 80 percent or better.
The national average for Football Bowl Subdivision football programs is a GSR
score of 69.

to move into eld goal position on their last possession.
Iowa dominated much of the game, but the Hawkeyes were able
to convert just three of six red zone possessions into points. The
Hawkeyes missed two eld goals in the rst half before taking a
7-0 advantage on a 12-yard pass from QB James Vandenberg to

Gopher 14. But a Vandenberg fumble was recovered by the
Gophers and Minnesota drove to a 28-yard eld goal.
Iowa increased its advantage on its following possession,
covering 71 yards in just seven plays. Vandenberg completed a
12-yard pass to OL Woody Orne (tackle eligible) on third down
before Coker scored his second touchdown from the one, and
Iowa led 21-10 with 13:51 to play.
Minnesota closed the gap to 21-16 with 8:22 remaining,
driving 80 yards in 11 plays. The two-point conversion failed,
but Minnesota kept momentum by recovering an onside kick to
maintain possession. The Gophers drove to fourth down at the
three, where QB MarQueis Gray scored the winning points.
Iowas offense dominated much of the rst three quarters.
Despite just seven offensive plays in the nal quarter, Iowa gained
446 yards total offense and had just one punt. Minnesota gained
371 yards total offense, with 155 yards coming in the nal period.
