Central Michigan upsets Iowa with a late field goal

Dr. Saturday

Central Michigan is bad, but Iowa was worse on Saturday.

With three seconds remaining, David Harman hit a career-long 47-yard field goal to give the Chippewas a 32-31 upset in one of the most depressing games ever -- if you're an Iowa or Big Ten fan.

Central Michigan scored nine points in the final 45 seconds of the game and recovered an onside kick to set up the game-winning field goal.

Central Michigan actually led this game 23-14 at halftime before Iowa seemingly rallied and looked like it had the game won when Mark Weisman scored on a 12-yard run with 2:18 remaining.

But the Iowa defense, which hadn't allowed a second-half touchdown in two weeks, forgot to finish the game.

This is probably the worst loss in Iowa coach Kirk Frentz's 14 seasons and just another black mark for a Big Ten Conference that has had a rough start to the season.
