Iowa City, Iowa — Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz says the bye week is a time for self evaluation.
The 11th ranked Hawkeyes are 6-1 despite ranking last in the Big Ten in total offense.
Ferentz says one area of improvement this season has been third down efficiency.
Ferentz says quarterback Spencer Petras has made progress this season and will make even more as a young offensive line matures.
Ferentz says the running game must make progress for the stretch run. The Hawkeyes are averaging just over three yards per carry.
