Iowa Hawkeyes: 1939 Football

2004 NR

Reeling from setbacks in the 1930s, things were looking grim for the Iowa Hawkeyes when Dr. Eddie Anderson became coach in 1939. He rebuilt the team with a fighting spirit that inspired not only his players, but also the entire country. Anderson's efforts paid off in a series of dramatic Hawkeye victories. Pulling double duty at both offense and defense, Nile Kinnick and the 1939 Hawkeyes became known as "the Iron Men."
