MIAMI — A pair of Iowa Hawkeyes reached the top of the mountain when it comes to the game of football Sunday by playing key roles in the Indianapolis Colts’ victory over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.
Dallas Clark, a native Iowa who earned all-America honors as a tight end for Coach Kirk Ferentz’s UI football team, had four catches for 36 yards for the AFC champion Colts.
Strong safety Bob Sanders – the heart and soul of the Colt defense – forced a fumble on a vicious hit of Chicago Bear running back Cedric Benson and also picked off Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman in the fourth quarter to seal Indianapolis’ 29-17 come-from-behind victory.
