==History==

The '''Iowa–Nebraska football rivalry''' is an American [[college football]] [[college rivalry|rivalry]] between the [[Iowa Hawkeyes football]] team of the [[University of Iowa]] and [[Nebraska Cornhuskers football]] team of the [[University of Nebraska]]. The Heroes Trophy is the trophy that is awarded to the winner of the game.
The two schools met often throughout the 1890s and the first half of the 20th century, but played only six times in the second half. Following Nebraska's move to the [[Big Ten Conference]] in 2011, the teams again meet annually. The Heroes Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the game since 2011. Nebraska leads the all-time series 29–17–3.
 
   
The proximity of the two teams played an important role in the early days of the game, with exclusive trains running between Iowa City and Lincoln to allow fans to travel.<ref>{{cite news|title=A Battle Royal Thanksgiving Day|newspaper=Omaha Daily Bee|location=Omaha, Nebraska|date=November 12, 1893|page=10|accessdate=September 12, 2016|url=https://www.newspapers.com/clip/6607276/a_battle_royal_thanksgiving_day_omaha/}}</ref> The first meeting of the series, which occurred on Thanksgiving day in Omaha, Nebraska, was the first game Iowa had ever played outside of its home state.<ref name="Looking Back" /> Other notable games during the 20th century occurred during the 4-year renewal of the rivalry in 1979-1982.<ref>{{cite news|title=Huskers stand tall over Hawkeyes in all-time series|newspaper=Omaha World-Herald|date=November 20, 2017|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://www.omaha.com/huskers/blogs/huskers-stand-tall-over-hawkeyes-in-all-time-series/article_de9a80b6-b02a-11e6-85fd-7bd60353fd2d.html}}</ref> In the 1979 meeting, #7 Nebraska prevailed over unranked Iowa after overcoming a two-touchdown deficit late in the third quarter, which resulted in a standing ovation from fans of both teams.<ref>{{cite news|title=NU-Iowa Grit Gets Standing Ovation|newspaper=Omaha World-Herald|date=September 22, 1979|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://dataomaha.com/huskers/history/game/1979-9-22-iowa}}</ref> In the 1981 meeting, Nebraska wasn't so lucky as unranked Iowa upset #7 Nebraska at Kinnick Stadium in what legendary Iowa coach [[Hayden Fry]] called "the biggest win since I’ve been here."<ref>{{cite news|title=Hawkeyes Paint the Big Red Blue|newspaper=Omaha World-Herald|date=September 12, 1981|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://dataomaha.com/huskers/history/game/1981-9-12-iowa}}</ref>

Nebraska leads the all-time series between the two schools at 28–12–3.
 
After Nebraska moved to the [[Big Ten Conference]], the teams have played annually on the Friday following [[Thanksgiving]]. Starting in 2011, the game was referred to as the "Heroes Game" and the Heroes Trophy was awarded to the winner of the game. The Heroes game, which is sponsored by Hy-Vee, is used to recognize individuals from each state for acts of heroism in their communities.<ref>{{cite news|title=Heroes Game|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://www.hy-vee.com/corporate/our-company/community/heroes-game/}}</ref> In 2017 it was announced by the Big Ten Conference that in 2020 and 2021, the game would not take place on the Friday following Thanksgiving.<ref>{{cite news|title=NU-Iowa leaving Black Friday after 2019; rivalry rotation likely|newspaper=Lincoln Journal Star|date=September 12, 2017|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/nu-iowa-leaving-black-friday-after-rivalry-rotation-likely/article_a3c8fc08-1a20-50ee-9aba-fd719fba94d8.html}}</ref> After significant opposition from fans, Nebraska athletic director [[Bill Moos]] made it a priority to restore the game to the Friday after Thanksgiving; accordingly, the Big Ten has scheduled the Iowa-Nebraska game for the Friday after Thanksgiving for all future post-2021 games through 2025.<ref name="Return in 2020" /><ref>{{cite news|title=Moos says of NU-Iowa becoming permanent on Black Friday: 'Not quite there but close'|newspaper=Lincoln Journal Star|date=May 6, 2018|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/moos-says-of-nu-iowa-becoming-permanent-on-black-friday/article_48357c16-c3db-5597-aec7-07c7bbacc119.html}}</ref><ref>{{cite news|title=Bill Moos Wants Iowa, Black Friday Game to Remain a Husker Tradition|newspaper=Hail Varsity|date=November 21, 2017|accessdate=November 23, 2018|url=https://hailvarsity.com/s/2777/bill-moos-wants-iowa-black-friday-game-to-remain-a-husker-tradition}}</ref>
