75 Years On, Memories of Big Win Still Linger
AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State-Iowa football series has long stirred the passions of Cyclone-Hawkeye fans since the two teams played each other for the first time in 1894. In the benefit of hindsight, several contests in this rivalry stand out as watershed moments that portended a sea change in the series. Iowa State's 31-6 win over Iowa 75 years ago on Oct. 20, 1934 is one of those moments. Few who watched it at State Field (later Clyde Williams Field) could imagine that the two schools would not meet again on the gridiron for 33 years.
