Iowa is getting a new look for one game in 2017. Kirk Ferentz told reporters during Big Ten Media Days on Monday that the Hawkeyes will wear an alternate uniform once during the upcoming season.
“I’m not a total curmudgeon,” Ferentz joked.
The Hawkeyes head coach did not have many details about what the uniform would look like or when Iowa would wear it.
“I’m not sure what game. I kind of know what it looks like, it’s alternative. I like our uniforms — I think you all know that — so I’m sure it will be well-received,” Ferentz said.
The Hawkeyes last donned an alternate uniform look against Minnesota in 2015. Iowa faces Penn State, Minnesota and Ohio State at home this season — all of which are possible dates the Hawkeyes could break out the alternate look.
