BTN is airing 18 different classic games, ranging from 2007-2014, as part of our new ?Big Ten Classics? series.

Tonight?s game, which will air at 8 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go, is Iowa football's 2007 double-overtime victory over Michigan State.

This game went down as one of the most entertaining contests of the Big Ten season. Trailing 17-3 at halftime, Iowa came storming back behind a dominant running game and defeated Michigan State, 34-31, in a double-overtime thriller.

Albert Young led the Hawkeyes' rushing attack with 179 yards and two touchdowns, while backup RB Jevon Pugh punched in a one-yard TD run to seal the victory in double overtime.

Here is a breakdown of the Hawkeyes' memorable 2007 comeback:

Top moment: Iowa's Adrian Clayborn sacks MSU quarterback Brian Hoyer on 3rd and 6, and then Iowa stops MSU on fourth down to secure the win.

Top stat line: Michigan State and Iowa combined to rush for 390 yards and six touchdowns.

Top player: Iowa running back Albert Young was outstanding in this game, rushing for 179 yards and two touchdowns.
