ISU linebacker Jake Knott's interception at his 24-yard line with 1:11 left in the game sealed the Cyclones' 9-6 win against Iowa.

It was ISU's second consecutive win over the Hawkeyes' and their first against their in-state rivals at Knnick Stadium since 2002. ISU Coach Paul Rhoads called the interception "just a phenomenal football play" in a game "which legends are made in."

"Jake Knott made that kind of play in a series that will have him go down in history for that play he made," Rhoads said. "Who knows how he high he was, what the level of the ball was when he made the play. But to do that after 59 minutes of football, with our backs against the wall, momentum clearly in their favor, then to have the presence of mind to settle and find it and then intercept it, you don't make better plays than that in this game.

"No. 20 decided to go win the football game."

Here's an on-field look at the play that decided the 60th edition of the Cy-Hawk showdown. Notice that Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz was open at the 20 and likely would have caught the pass for a first down.
