A look at the 'new' new Cy-Hawk trophy
By David Ubben
The redesigned Cy-Hawk trophy caused a fan uproar in August, so plans were scrapped.
The pewter trophy of a family sharing an intimate moment around a bushel of corn lived a short, ridiculed life.
But thanks to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, here's a look at the new trophy.
This trophy is only an interim version, which features what looks like the same base as the original Cy-Hawk trophy.
As for the game? Iowa State bounced back from a rough start and two red zone fumbles to tie the game at 10 on a perfect 53-yard field goal from Grant Mahoney just before halftime.
"Great kick, great composure by him," coach Paul Rhoads told the sideline reporter on his way into the locker room. "We finally stopped playing give away and started playing take away."
