Police find fan wearing Iowa QB C.J. Beathard's helmet following Michigan win

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard lost his helmet during the celebration following the upset win over No. 3 Michigan on Saturday, and it required the help of law enforcement to get it back.

“The equipment guy told me one of the cops walking down the street saw a kid wearing it,” Beathard said.

Beathard threw his helmet shortly after kicker Keith Duncan hit the 33-yard field goal to give Iowa the 14-13 victory. Students rushed the field after the great win.

Coach Ferentz says a number of helmets disappeared after the victory, but all have been returned. Ferentz says student managers were "scrambling on Saturday."
