The week one loss to Northern Illinois might seem like a long time ago and that’s because the Hawkeyes are a much better team now than the one they were in August.
But the Hawkeyes got a big challenge on Saturday against the nation’s top defense.
Fans alternated black and gold throughout Kinnick Stadium on Saturday. For the last four years, the Hawkeyes and the Spartans have alternated wins.
This year was not the Hawkeye’s year and it was the Spartans who took home the win. The Hawkeyes lose the game 26-14.
