Marcus Coker, Micah Hyde to be honored at game

[ 1 ] February 9, 2011 |

From UI Sports Information:

Members of the 2010 University of Iowa football team will be on hand Sunday, Feb. 13 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena for an Insight Bowl victory recognition and photo opportunity with the Insight Bowl trophy.

The Iowa men’s basketball team will host Minnesota on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena at 5 p.m. Sunday.  The Hawkeye wrestling team, currently ranked second in the nation, will host Michigan at 1 p.m. Sunday in the final home match of the season.

Fans will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with the Insight Bowl trophy from 3 to 5 p.m.  “Flash Portraits from the Coral Ridge Mall” will be available to help fans capture their photo.  Iowa defeated 12th-ranked Missouri 27-24 in the 2010 Insight Bowl in Tempe, Ariz.

Two Hawkeye players, freshman running back Marcus Coker and sophomore cornerback Micah Hyde, were named Offensive and Defensive Most Valuable Players, respectively, in the Insight Bowl and both will recognized during halftime ceremonies, along with all Hawkeye football players who are in attendance.  Coker set Iowa bowl records by rushing 33 times for 219 yards, and he scored two touchdowns.  Hyde set an Iowa bowl record for longest interception return, as his theft and 72-yard touchdown with 5:32 remaining provided Iowa’s margin of victory.

The Hawkeyes were the only unranked team to win a bowl game against a team ranked in the top 12 in the BCS standings.  Iowa is also one of just four programs in the nation to register a bowl victory after each of the last three seasons.  Ferentz is tied for third all-time among Big Ten coaches with six bowl victories.

Anyone with a ticket to the men’s basketball game will be admitted to the wrestling meet, and wrestling fans are invited to remain in Carver-Hawkeye Arena for the basketball game.  Wrestling fans staying for the basketball game are encouraged to sit in sections G, H, I, FF, GG or HH, above row 25.

Basketball fans attending the wrestling meet are encouraged to sit in sections G, H and I, above row 25.  Re-entry between events will not be allowed.

Tickets for Sunday’s men’s game are $25 for adults, while youth and UI student tickets are $15.  General public parking is available at the Finkbine Commuter Lot and Lot 43, located west of Kinnick Stadium and the UI Recreation Building.
