There's nothing like a little kicker swagger. Iowa's Keith Duncan has it in spades.

On Friday, the Hawkeyes won a dramatic game at Nebraska, effectively ending the Huskers' bowl hopes. Duncan was the one to seal the deal, with a 48-yard field goal to win it, 27-24.

After the kick, he blew the fans at Memorial Stadium a kiss, something that is sure to help build this Thanksgiving Week rivalry going forward. It helps that Duncan is one of the best in the country at his position, and has hit 29-of-34 kicks this year, along with a perfect 25-of-25 extra points. He is a candidate for the Groza Award.

He's keeping things going today, with an Instagram post in which he declares that Nebraska's Memorial Stadium is now "his house."

Iowa moved to 9-3 with the win. While they fell short of winning the Big Ten West, a division up for grabs in Minneapolis as we speak, it has been a very successful campaign. The Hawkeyes handed one rival, Minnesota, its only loss of the year so far, and ended another's season, as Nebraska will likely miss a bowl, unless it can once again sneak in at 5-7 with a good APR score. That is quite unlikely. Meanwhile Keith Duncan and the Hawkeyes should get a pretty nice bowl bid once the postseason matchups take shape after next weekend's games. [
