Second Team

Drew Tate

Skinny: Tate’s performance during the ’04 championship run was one for the ages. The Hawkeyes had no running game and still won the season’s final 10 games. They capped it with a last-second win against defending national champion LSU in the ’05 Capital One Bowl on a Tate to Warren Holloway touchdown pass. Tate ranks second to Long on Iowa’s all-time list for passing yards (8,292) and touchdowns (61).
