Hawkeye fans refer to it as THE CATCH, one of the greatest plays in recent Iowa football history, and it is still is fresh in fans’ minds.
Warren Holloway’s miracle play, a 56-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Drew Tate, sealed a 30-25 win for Iowa over LSU — the defending BCS National Champion — in the Capitol One Bowl on January 1, 2005. It was the senior’s only touchdown of his Hawkeye career, making it all the more special.
Holloway says the coolest thing about meeting Hawkeye fans is hearing the hundreds of different stories about where people were, what they were doing, and how they reacted when the Iowa wide receiver made what is now hailed simply as THE CATCH.
Everyone has a different viewpoint, and HawkeyeLocator interviewed several people in attendance that day in Orlando, including players, coaches, team administrators and media members for multiple perspectives on the play. Check out each person’s story on her interactive look back at THE CATCH.
