Under Ferentz for a 16th year in 2015, Iowa went 12-2, losing only to Michigan State and Stanford in the Big Ten Championship game and the Rose Bowl, respectively. That 12-2 record was also the first time Iowa had won 10 games since the 2009 season when the Hawkeyes finished 11-2 and defeated Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl.
Kerentz owns a 128-87 record as Iowa’s head coach to go along with a career record of 140-108.
