By now you've probably seen most of the highlights from Iowa's win over Western Michigan on Saturday. The Hawkeyes scored a season-high in points in the 41-10 victory. Even offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz slept a bit better on Saturday night! But there was one highlight you might have missed from Saturday's game involving a male member of the Iowa cheerleading team.

Being a member of the Iowa cheerleading squad takes athletic ability just like playing a sport like football. The timing has to be just right or the whole routine can be thrown off. During a timeout in the action on Saturday, Athlon Sports reports that a male member of the Iowa cheerleading squad decided to thrill fans with a series of backflips in the endzone. For those watching carefully, they got to see a whole lot more!

After watching that video several times, a few things came to my attention. First of all, how quickly did he pull those pants back up? I bet there were more fans who didn't see what happened than did see! And secondly, apparently, Iowa cheerleaders must wear undergarments in either Iowa black or gold. I had no idea that was required.
