Two Cedar Rapids men will be honored during halftime of the Iowa-Nebraska game.

The game is known as the "Hy-Vee Heroes Game" and this year the Iowa recipients are from Cedar Rapids.

Ken Blazek and Brock Staley are credited with saving the life of their neighbor. Firefighters say they helped their neighbor out of her home during an explosion and provided medical care until rescue crews arrived. Firefighters day they shut off the gas meter and used a fire extinguisher in their efforts to pull  their neighbor to safety. 

Three people from Nebraska will also be honored.
