Week 10 Recap: Mildcats

It was a cool crisp day in Iowa City, but the sun was shining, and it was perfect for a Big Ten November game.  

We do never hear who wins the toss, but it’s little matter, the Mildcats are kicking off to Iowa.  The kick lands right at the goal line, and right inside the near sideline, Parker reaches up, drops the ball, but then picks it up on one hop and starts forward.  At the 10, he cuts the ball across the numbers, and he keeps going that way, he is in the clear as he crosses the 20, the 30, he is now outside the far numbers as he crosses the 40, the 50, and he is finally forced out at about the Cat 46!  But as he falls out of bounds, the kicker shoves him in the back, and Parker slams into a helmet case on the Mildcat sideline, flags fly, that is a late hit out of bounds.  15 yard penalty, an Iowa 1st down at the Cat 31!
