Cyclones win thriller over Hawkeyes in 3 OT

This year’s game between Iowa State and Iowa was best game I have seen since the two schools restarted the rivalry in 1977. Iowa State won it in the third overtime when James White scored on 4 yard run.  Final score was 44-41.

Despite turning the ball over 3 times in the game, the Cyclones overcame a ten point first quarter deficit to take a 17-16 early into the fourth quarter and a seven point deficit to the tie the game at 24-24 forcing overtime. The Cyclone offense was working well this weekend as it lead the Hawkeyes in all offensive statistics, first downs (29-20), total yards (472-363), rushing yards (192-156), passing yards (280-206), and return yards (155-48). Overcoming their turnovers and penalties, the Cyclones gave all Iowa and Iowa State fans a game to remember.
