DES MOINES, Iowa — The regional cover of Sports Illustrated’s November 30th issue is featuring the Iowa Hawkeye football team.

The 11-0 Hawkeyes take on Nebraska Friday in the Heroes Game, which is the last of the regular season. Iowa earned a trip to the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis on Dec. 5th with a 40-20 win over Purdue last weekend.

Let’s hope the Hawkeyes can escape the “cover curse” and it doesn’t turn into a repeat of 2009, when Iowa’s Derrell Johnson- Koulianos appeared on the front cover. The title was “Still Perfect” but the Hawks lost to Northwestern just a few days before the issued was distributed.
