Michigan joined what is now the Big Ten conference in 1896 and Iowa followed in 1899, but in that long span (albeit some years without official statistics), there have been a lot of big plays. Hayden Fry got Iowa’s program going in the right direction during the 1980s and 1990s, and Kirk Ferentz has continued that trend since.
