Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz Previews Nebraska

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says the Hawkeyes turned their season around by focusing on the game in front of them and that can’t change this week.

The Hawkeyes host a Black Friday game against Nebraska and with a victory will make a second straight trip to the Big Ten Championship game.

The Hawkeyes were 3-4 and a humiliating loss at Ohio State but have won four straight.

Iowa will be without tight end Sam LaPorta and fullback Monte Pottebaum the former West Lyon Wildcat. Ferentz says both could return before the season is over.

Ferentz says the last two games are why turnovers are the most important stat in a football game. The Hawkeyes won despite being outgained.
