    If you had to pick the most iconic play for ISU each year, what would they be?

    Here are my initial thoughts on several years below:

    2019: Assalley Game-winning FG against Texas

    2018: Rose fumble TD against Kansas State

    2017: Lazard game-winning TD against Oklahoma

    2016: ?

    2015: Warren fumble against Kansas State

    2014: Netten game-winning FG against Iowa
    ...
    2007: Culbertson game-winning FG against Iowa

    It's either that or Purdys fumble recovery versus UNI.

    2016 could maybe be one of Lanning’s TD runs against Texas Tech

    2018 Honorable Mention
    Spears INT to clinch the game against TCU.

    And his pick 6 against Tech was a dandy

    Would 2010 go to the onside kick return for a touchdown against texas tech?

    There were lots of great plays in the game vs texas that year but nothing truly iconic as far as a single play goes.

    That was in 2017. We had that inexplicable loss to TCU in 2018.

    I'll take the easy one:

    2011: Jeff Woody game winning TD run in 2nd OT to upset #2 Okie State.

    Purdy to Jones on the first play of the 2nd half vs. Texas this season was vintage Purdy.

    Jones to Pettway vs. Iowa was sweet at the time.

    Without that recovery we aren't playing ND.
    Enuff to get my vote.

    '76, I think. But yes that's a good nominee.

    A few nominees, pre-2010 … some obvious; others arguable.

    2009: Tiller TD pass to Williams vs. Nebraska. (Put in Tiller!!!)
    2005: Brent Curvey pick-6 vs. Colorado (or one of Blythe’s 4 TD catches vs. A&M?)
    2004: LaMarcus Hicks pick-6 vs. KSU (first that came to mind - that 4th Q was so f***** awesome)
    2002: The Run
    2000: Insight Bowl: JaMaine Billups 72-yard punt return (first thing that came to me)
    1996: Troy Davis 10-in-box TD in TD's 378-yard game vs. Mizzou
    1992: Marvelous Marv!
    1979-82: Alex Giffords Somethin’-Somethin’ :D

    Hands down the play of the year was Purdy diving on that fumble against UNI to save that game.

    Had we lost to UNI, our season could have easily went in the toilet quick. I doubt we make a bowl game at all if not for Purdy diving on that fumble.

    It is the muffed punt against Iowa for 2019. Clean catch and ISU moves down the field for a score.
