Iowa improves to ridiculous mark against Top 7 teams in Kinnick Stadium over last decade
Kirk Ferentz and the Hawkeyes have done it again!
By this time, college football fans are well aware of the prowess of Iowa under Ferentz. It seems like the Hawkeyes have made it an annual tradition to knock off a top-10 team inside the confines of Kinnick Stadium.
Well, it’s not quite an annual event, but the Hawkeyes are on an incredible run against Top 7 teams since 2008. According to BTN’s Mike Hall, Iowa is 5-1 against Top 7 teams on the AP Poll in that time period with Saturday’s win over No. 7 Minnesota.

What makes that even more impressive is the one loss came on the last play of a game. In 2017, the Hawkeyes had Penn State on the ropes, but Trace McSorley hit Juwan Johnson for a game-winner as time expired.
Still, the magic of Kinnick Stadium is still alive and well for the Hawkeyes. It claimed one more victim Saturday night.
