4 Picture Moments From 2012 Iowa-Iowa State Game

Pass the Ketchup and Mustard, please.

It’s Cyclone Week, but you already knew that.  Tomorrow at 5 pm CT, the Hawkeyes can begin to erase that nasty taste that lingers from last year after the Vandenberg-to-Knott interception that snuffed out any hope Iowa had to reach the end zone and put away the Cyclones.  The good news is Jake Knott doesn’t have any remaining eligibility and neither does AJ Klein, two players Iowa State will find impossible to replace any time soon.

Last year’s Iowa-ISU game at Kinnick was completely frustrating in every sense of the word.  Iowa could not find the end zone and that became something we would have to endure all season long.  Iowa had numerous chances, but too many dropped passes killed any momentum Iowa could muster.  And then there is that cheer the ISU fans do while being led by the too-long-of-a-name-ISU-Marching-Cyclone-Varsity-Band.  You know the tune: that ru-ray-ru-reee “Go! CYCLONES!”  Good grief.

Here are 4 shots I took from last year’s game that were momentous.  The scenes of each one of these needs to be reversed for the Hawkeyes to win on Saturday.  Go Hawks!

I don't know what Ferentz said to prompt this Paul Rhoads belly laugh, but Kirk, you need to make sure you get the LAST LAUGH this time.

Iowa State scored the games only touchdown.  It came on their opening drive.  Iowa needs to start out quick and keep the Cyclones on their heels the rest of the way.

This Mark Weisman catch was good enough to be the game winner.  Oops.  He dropped it.  That was the back-breaker before the neck- breaker from Knott.

Jake Knott grabbed this interception in the final minute in last year's game.  Tanner Miller or a compadre needs to do it this year.
