Rob Houghtlin remembers arriving here one year ago, checking into his hotel room and seeing a note taped to his television set to call home immediately. He called his father, Bob, in Glenview, Ill., who informed Rob that his grandfather had just died. That night, Houghtlin got down on his knees and prayed for his grandfather. He prays a lot. A week passed, during which Houghtlin and his Iowa Hawkeye teammates took part in all of the hoopla leading up to the Holiday Bowl football game.

Iowa has reason to be proud. The greatest players from Iowa's last Rose Bowl team have gone on to even greater things. Chuck Long is a quarterback for the Rams. Ronnie Harmon is a running back for the Chargers. And Rob Houghtlin coaches St. Mary's Quadzilla, a championship rugby team. For quadriplegics. It should come as no surprise that Houghtlin is doing something so worthwhile with his free time and with his life.

Rob Houghtlin, given a second chance at a winning field goal after Minnesota was penalized for too many men on the field, converted from 37 yards with one second to play Saturday night to give Iowa a 30-27 victory at Minneapolis. Houghtlin had missed a 51-yard attempt on the preceding play.

"People have got to get over the fact that we lost a lot of guys," said B.J. Askew, who had 20 carries for 94 yards and a touchdown. "Everyone is talking about the guys that left when they talk about Michigan.

McConkey, the game's most valuable player, made a leaping catch in the end zone to put the Middies ahead for good, 20-16. "That long pass play was the game," BYU Coach LaVell Edwards said. "That completely turned the momentum."
