Final Facts From the Field ...
The Raiders managed only 209 total yards of offense, including a mere 62 yards rushing. This from the team that was ranked seventh in the nation rushing the ball, with 273.5 yards per contest coming during the regular season.
Lethridge completed 13 of 26 passes for 140 yards and was intercepted once.
The Hawkeyes racked up 353 yards of offense, including 214 yards rushing. This despite being held to only 53 yards rushing in the first half. Hawkeye quarterbacks, though, completed 10 of 17 passes for 139 yards.
The Raiders had 12 first downs, compared with Iowa's 22.
Hanspard, expected to be the main spark for Tech's offense in the game, was a non-factor for most of the game. Hanspard finished with 64 yards on 18 carries, and did not touch the ball in Tech's final three series.
Hanspard's counterpart for Iowa, Shaw, had 115 yards on 20 carries.
The loss, Tech's third in four bowl games in as many years, dropped the Raiders' bowl record to 5-16-1. Tech has won only one bowl game inside the state of Texas, that being the 1952 Sun Bowl when the Raiders defeated Pacific 25-14.
Dykes' record at the helm of Tech bowl games is now 2-4.
