The University of Iowa football team wore 1921-22 throwback uniforms when the Hawkeyes played Iowa State in the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Trophy game Saturday, September 8 in Kinnick Stadium.
The Cy-Hawk contest in September 2012 marked Iowa’s third game in throwback uniforms. The Hawkeyes wore uniforms modeled after the 1958 Iowa squad when they defeated Ball State 45-0 on Sept. 25, 2010. Iowa also wore uniforms honoring the 1939 Ironmen during its 39-7 win over Kent State on Sept. 4, 2004.
Iowa posted a perfect 7-0 record in both 1921 and 1922 under Coach Howard Jones, including winning all five Big Ten Conference games each season. Iowa scored over 40 points three times in 1921, including 41 points in consecutive wins over Minnesota and Indiana in November. The Iowa defense allowed just 36 points on the season, posting three defensive shutouts (Illinois scored two points).
In 1922 the Hawkeyes allowed just 33 points, posting three shutouts, while winning a second straight Big Ten title. Along with the five conference wins in 1921, Iowa also posted a 10-7 home victory over Notre Dame. The two undefeated seasons were part of an overall 20-game winning streak that included the final three games of 1920 until the fourth game of the 1923 season. No opponent scored more than 14 points in 25 consecutive games between 1920-23.
The throwback uniform features an old gold helmet with gray facemasks and the front bumper has the wordmark IOWA. Back neckline of the helmet had the inscription of ’21-22 Big Ten Champs. The throwback jersey had a black body, old gold semicircle under arms, white numbers front and back, and no player name. The pants were old gold, matching the old gold on jersey and helmet. The throwback also had all black high game socks with black shoes that had black laces and a silver Nike swoosh.
