Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz On The 12-10 Loss To Minnesota

Iowa heads into its bye week with a 6-2 record after a 12-10 loss to Minnesota in Kinnick Stadium.

The game featured a controversial finish. Cooper DeJean returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown to give Iowa the lead with a minute-11 remaining. Replay took the touchdown off the board due to an invalid fair catch signal and three plays later the Gophers intercepted Deacon Hill to secure the win. Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz was not pleased with the reversal.

Ferentz was asked about the explanation he received.

Ferentz says he was confused as to how a fair catch even became part of the review.

Iowa’s offense hit a new low against the Gophers with only 12 yards inn the second half.

Hill was ineffective but also fumbled twice and had an interception and Ferentz was pressed as to why he remains the starter.

Iowa returns to action November fourth in Wrigley Field against Northwestern.
