If it wasn’t the worst loss in the Kirk Ferentz era, it was the ugliest. The Hawkeyes were embarrassed at Kinnick Stadium by unranked Penn State and embarrassed may be putting it lightly.
The crowd was ready, but the hawkeyes were not. It was 31-0 before Hawkeye fans started to sober up a bit. The final score was 38-14, but both of Iowa’s touchdowns came in the 4th quarter when the stadium was half empty. Iowa hasn’t lost like this at home since Y2K.
