Senior Iowa receiver Matt VandeBerg has been missed dearly this season since his season ending foot injury back in September, but the Hawks were able to salvage a solid 8-4 season after a few early hiccups to earn a trip to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida. Hopefully this game doesn’t end up in the hands of the referees like the last time Iowa played Florida in the Outback Bowl, way back in 2006 when Chad Greenway was wrongfully called offsides as Iowa fell to the Gators.
Anyways, VandeBerg had arguably the best game of his career back in September against Iowa State and he proposed to his girlfriend Laura Bulanda after the game.
Of course she said yes, and now Bulanda is working with HawkeyeSports.com, so the couple has some serious Iowa ties. We recently caught up with the two, checkout our interview below.
