LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Two heroes were honored during halftime of Friday's game at Memorial Stadium by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts and athletic directors from both schools.

Nebraska's recipient was James Wilke, a Columbus man who died trying to rescue people during the floods in March. His family received the award in his honor.

Iowa's recipient was Katie Gudenkauf, a Dubuque nurse who saved a man's life when his heart stopped beating during an indoor soccer game.
