Iowa to Meet LSU in Outback Bowl

Warren Holloway, circa January 1, 2005 after his touchdown reception to beat the LSU Tigers in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando.  It was probably the most miraculous play in Iowa football history (at least in my lifetime).  I know you remember.  It appeared time might run out before Drew Tate was even able to get the snap.  But get the snap he did.  I remember my wife and I both being within about two feet of the television screen when Holloway crossed the goal line, with me screaming “We won the game!  We won the game!”  Nearly nine years later, I still can’t believe it.  I thought you might enjoy this look back at that day as we look ahead to the 2014 meeting between the two schools, this time in the Outback Bowl in Tampa.  Kickoff is New Year’s Day at noon on ESPN. Let’s hope for another great Hawkeye victory, with less heart-stopping excitement at the end.

Interested in making the trip to the Sunshine State?  Here’s some info, straight from the U of I.
