This will be a similar sight late December in Tempe, Arizona. Today the Iowa Hawkeyes accepted the invitation to play in the 23rd annual Insight Bowl at Sun Devil Stadium on the campus of Arizona State. It will be the second time in a row the Hawkeyes will appear in the pre-New Year's Day bowl game. The opponent will be the Oklahoma Sooners of the Big 12 who the Hawkeyes haven't played since losing in Norman 21-6 in 1979, the only meeting in the series.
This year's game will be on Friday, December 30th beginning at 9pm CT on ESPN. Announcing the game will be Sean McDonough, Matt Millen and Heather Cox.
