IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa and Iowa State did not play their regularly scheduled football game in 2001 because it fell just days after the terrorist attacks on September 11.

The decision to postpone was not immediate. Some people thought they should play.

College officials were waiting for the NFL to make a decision.

When the pros canceled, the colleges followed suit.

Iowa and Iowa state ended up playing the game in Ames on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The Cyclones won the game, the only time the two schools have played at the end of the regular season.
