What a game! [Dec. 3rd, 2005|02:24 pm]
University of Northern Iowa



According to ESPN.com, it appears UNI has done the impossible. The Panthers beat Division I-AA #1 New Hampshire Wildcats on the "Frozen Tundra" of Cowell Stadium.

UNI started off with a 21 point lead, on the heels of two touchdowns by David Horne and one by Terrence Freeney, but the Wildcats quickly stormed back, tying the game at 21-21

In the end, a 4th quarter field goal by Brian Wingert proved to be the difference.

The Panthers last advanced to the Football Semifinals in 2001, where they lost to top-ranked (and eventual champion) Montana. In 2003, the Panthers lost to top-ranked (and eventual champion) Delaware in the quarterfinals.

They will play next week, either at #4 ranked Texas State, or at the Dome against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Yup, it was a good game too... I only caught like the last 5 minutes of it, but UNI came up with a big 4th down UNH fumble to essentially clinch it.
