Heroes Trophy ‘stache reaches 6 straight for Hawkeyes

Hawkeye Headquarters

Nebraska is worried about mustaches, Iowa is focused on football. Advantage Hawkeyes! Iowa won their 4th straight game as they defeated Nebraska 26-20. The Hawkeyes have won six straight games against the Cornhuskers, and currently lead the trophy series 7-3.

It wasn’t a pretty game for Iowa, but defensive lineman Chauncey Golston made the play of the day when he strip-sacked Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez for the game-clinching play. Iowa was led by Tyler Goodson, who had 111 yards on 30 carries, and quarterback Spencer Petras, who threw for 193 yards and a touchdown. Nebraska used a combination of Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffery at quarterback. The Hawkeyes will travel to play Illinois next Saturday.
