Did Desmond King do what we think he just did?
The Iowa All-American cornerback was called for a personal foul in the first half of the Hawkeyes game against Michigan and appeared to throw up two middle fingers toward Michigan, or maybe the officials, or maybe to both.
Iowa made a stop on Jabrill Peppers in the backfield, but King’s penalty gave the Wolverines a first down and led to a field goal.
But hey, the Hawkeyes got a field goal of their own as time expired to beat No. 3 Michigan, 14-13. King will be celebrating tonight.

King entered Saturday with 45 tackles and one interception in nine games this season. He was a first-team All-American for the 2015 Hawkeyes, who went 12-0 in the regular season before losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game and Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Last season, King has eight interceptions and 72 tackles.
