IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz met with the media for his weekly press conference on Tuesday. The Hawkeyes coach emerged from last weekend’s win over Minnesota encouraged by the play of his team, but his attention is focused squarely on Purdue this Saturday.
After its 14-7 win over the Gophers, Iowa (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) sits in second place in the Big Ten West, one loss behind unbeaten Nebraska in the standings. The Boilermakers are 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the conference, meaning a win Saturday would vault them over the Hawkeyes in the standings.
Among the topics you can Ferentz discuss below: why he believes the offensive line is improving, what he sees in Purdue, and exactly what drives the Iowa rush defense.
