SIOUX CITY | The Iowa Hawkeyes have completed their regular season for football and are eligible to play in a bowl game.

The 2016 season didn't match the 2015 campaign for the Hawkeyes, who were undefeated for the regular season and a Top 10 team going into the Rose Bowl game. But this year has been particularly memorable for one game in particular, when Big Ten Conference rival Michigan came into Iowa City with a Top 5 ranking and left with a narrow loss.

The Nov. 12 game ended with a game-winning field goal of 33 yards by Hawkeye kicker Keith Duncan in the final seconds.

Of course, avid Hawkeye fans know this isn't the only time a Top 5 Michigan team left Iowa City with a loss on a last-second team. That also occurred in a fantastic 1985 game when the two teams ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation.

That was the day kicker Rob Houghtlin became a Hawkeye icon as he booted the football through the uprights to win the game, 31 years ago.

Fans are still debating which  Michigan game was more notable. Cast your vote in the Sioux City Journal poll.
