Iowa State 27 — Utah 68


Last night (10-9-10) Bill and I attended the Iowa State vs Utah football game. End result: Iowa State 27 – Utah 68. Man, those Utah players run amazingly fast. Even though they were on the opposing team, it really was kind of beautiful watching them weave, with great timing on their hesitations, through the ISU defense on the way to another Utah touchdown.

Game time was 6:00 PM CST. I imagine game time temps were in the 70s and 60s. With such comfortable weather and a looking-like filled stadium, and Utah being ranked #10, you can imagine the ISU fans’ excitement as ISU scored the first touchdown of the game. That was before Utah’s beautiful weaving/running started.

The following film is of that first touchdown and extra-point kick. The footage is lousy in that it is herky-jerky. My video camera is unreliable, I misjudged my speed of panning, and I didn’t want to hold the camera so as to block people’s views. However, if you’ve not been to a game at Iowa State’s Jack Trice Stadium for a long time (or ever), or even if you have, at least the clip gives you a little sense of being there last night when ISU was ahead.

We were sitting on the west side of the stadium; the large score board/video board is at the south end of the stadium.

    You’ve captured the spirit of the moment! Yes, the Utah players were definitely strong and fast!!!!! The game was not dull even though it was a rout. The fun was being together.

    Great to look at this on film! But I really think we people on the East side of the stands yell a lot louder than you guys on the West. 🙂

    Marsha: I think you are right about the east side yelling louder. Anyway, the people in the area where we were sitting seemed to be kind of reserved (except for the guy across the aisle who brought his flask to the game!).
