    Michigan State - 30
    Iowa - 24

    Part 6 of the MSU/Iowa rivalry was held at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa. Being the biggest game on the schedule for the Spartans, they came out guns ablazing, scoring on a 16 yard run by Mike Wheatley. The ensuing PAT was missed though, and the score was 6-0. Iowa then responded with a FG on the next drive. Thus ended the first quarter 6-3.

    After two drives for the Spartans and solid defense by the secondary the Spartans took a 20-3 lead into half. MSU kicked off to start the 2nd half, but ended up getting the ball on a fumble by Iowa. The Spartans returned the ball for a TD taking a 27-3 lead. Iowa then responded with much needed points with a pass from All-Big Ten QB Brandon Sanders to WR Tyler Bryan. Rob Schroeder then came in to kick a 35 yard field goal, the final points for MSU. The 3rd quarter ended 30-10 in favor of the Spartans from East Lansing.

    As Iowans were moving towards the parking lot, Brandon Sanders showed why he is one of the best, driving the Hawkeyes to back-to-back drives to make the game 30-24. After a stalled Spartans drive, Sanders was set up to finish one of the greatest comebacks of all time. After Iowa got to the 19 yard line, the Spartans dropped 2 straight interceptions, and the final pass of the day dropped to the ground in one of Sander's few bad passes. Game. 30-24 Michigan State
