    It was Senior Day in Iowa City and the Hawkeyes were hoping to send them off with a bang and win the Legends Division but it just was not so. Iowa would jump out to a 7-0 followed by a missed Nebraska FG. The Hawkeyes would drive right down the field to the Nebraska 8 yard line, it looked like Iowa would go up by two scores but Jordan Canzeri fumbled on a simple draw play. Nebraska would take the momentum and rattle off 17 straight points. Iowa would fight back and tie the game at 17. Nebraska would march down the field and score another TD. Iowa would then fumble the kickoff return and Nebraska would return it for a TD, scoring 14 pts in 15 seconds. Iowa would not go down without a fight, Seniors James Vandenberg (14-29 515 yds 4 TD 3 INT), Keenan Davis (7 REC 282 yards 3 TD) and Zach Derby (5 REC 223 yards 1 TD) did everything they could, but 5 team turnovers killed the Hawkeyes. After starting out 8-2 the Hawkeyes are on a two game losing streak, from sitting atop the Big Ten to the middle of the pack.
