Former Hawkeye to Officiate BCS Title Game

As Auburn and Oregon compete for the BCS national title Monday night, one former Hawkeye will be on the field with them.

Robert Smith will be keeping a close watch on both teams, but he won’t be at the game as a fan.

The former Iowa wide receiver will serve as the back judge for tonight’s championship contest, according to Iowa news anchor Ron Steele.

Smith was a wideout for the Hawkeyes from 1983-86, catching 69 passes for 1,438 yards and 16 touchdowns. His 1,438 career receiving yards ranks 20th best in Hawkeye history.

He was a member of perhaps one of the most famous Iowa football teams ever — the 1985 squad who defeated No. 2-ranked Michigan and qualified for the Rose Bowl. Smith played with legendary Hawkeyes Chuck Long, and was on the receiving end of the longest completion of Long’s Iowa career — an 89-yard strike against Northwestern.
