One ridiculous stat pretty well sums up this contest: 21 punts totalling 936 yards! A swarming Iowa defense forced 11 SDSU punts; a comically inept Iowa offense required 10 more. As usual, the Iowa defense saves the day.

Congratulations to Game#1 winner HawkPT who submitted an entry with nary a miss, 10-0. In accordance with league rules, HawkPT will now undergo a mandatory lab test to screen for the presence of PEDs.

Iowa (0-0, 10-4/2021) vs. SDSU (0-0, 11-4/2021)
Series: First Meeting
Coach Ferentz: 24th season at Iowa 178-110 (61.8%)
Coach John Stiegelmeier: 26th season, 184-111 (62.3%)

The long wait is over Hawk fans... fire up the tailgates! The 2022 season opener features the defending B10W champs vs. FCS powerhouse and #3 ranked SDSU. Both teams are led by legendary coaches who have achieved long term success from their humble beginnings of taking the reigns of their respecive programs in the late 20th century. A very solid test for the Hawkeyes right out of the gate.

Pretty simple - answer 10 questions and the tie-breaker. I normally post contest results on Mondays. In the past, I've posted cumulative contest records towards determining an overall winner for those who submit a contest entry each and every game, updates starting about mid-season. Everyone is welcome to play, including visitors.

In keeping with home-opener tradition, pre-game festivities in the Y/N Lounge will feature jalepenos and dirty cheerleader strippers . Let's get it on...............

The long wait is over Hawk fans... fire up the tailgates! The 2022 season opener features the defending B10W champs vs. FCS powerhouse and #3 ranked SDSU. Both teams are led by legendary coaches who have achieved long term success from their humble beginnings of taking the reigns of their respecive programs in the late 20th century. A very solid test for the Hawkeyes right out of the gate.

Pretty simple - answer 10 questions and the tie-breaker. I normally post contest results on Mondays. In the past, I've posted cumulative contest records towards determining an overall winner for those who submit a contest entry each and every game, updates starting about mid-season. Everyone is welcome to play, including visitors.

In keeping with home-opener tradition, pre-game festivities in the Y/N Lounge will feature jalepenos and dirty cheerleader strippers . Let's get it on...............
