On Friday afternoon, two Big Ten rivals met on the appropriately dubbed Rivalry Weekend. Iowa and Nebraska kicked off just after 12:00 p.m. ET and it looked like the Hawkeyes were ready to run away with the win.

Iowa jumped out to an early lead and nearly had the Huskers on the ropes until Adrian Martinez and the Nebraska offense came storming back.

The Hawkeyes led 28-13 heading into the fourth quarter, but Martinez led two touchdown drives for the Huskers to knot the game at 28 with just over three minutes left.

Iowa then marched down the field and hit a walk-off field goal as time expired to take home its eighth win of the season.

The loss sent Nebraska to 4-8 on the season which isn't the season Huskers fans envisioned when the year kicked off.

Iowa will head to a solid bowl game while the Huskers will get ready for next season.
