UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT - SALLY MASON
Sally Mason

President, The University of Iowa
Sally Mason became the 20th President of the University
of Iowa on August 1, 2007. Trained as a cell developmental
biologist, she also holds a full professorship in the Department
of Biology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
At Iowa, President Mason has spearheaded a sustainable
university initiative, making sustainability a central priority of all
aspects of the university enterprise. Currently, she is overseeing
campus rebuilding in the wake of the historic 2008 flooding,
especially the renewal of an arts campus for the 21st century. Under President Mason’s
leadership, the UI has successfully met the country’s recent economic challenges
through careful planning, strategic prioritization, and increased efficiency. Other
major accomplishments during President Mason’s tenure have been a student
success initiative that has led to increased enrollment and student retention, as well
as an expansion of partnership agreements with Iowa’s community colleges in order
to offer UI degrees to students throughout the state through on-site and distance
learning programs. President Mason successfully advocated for a tuition freeze for
resident undergraduate students for the 2013–2014 academic year, the first tuition
freeze in thirty years.
The daughter of an immigrant father and the first child in her family to attend
college, President Mason received her B.A. in zoology from the University of Kentucky
in 1972, her M.S. from Purdue University in 1974, and her Ph.D. in cellular, molecular,
and developmental biology from the University of Arizona in 1978. She spent two
postdoctoral research years at Indiana University before joining the molecular
biosciences faculty at the University of Kansas in 1981, where she received awards for
outstanding undergraduate advising and teaching and was awarded a prestigious
Kemper Teaching Fellowship. After stints as acting chair of the Department of
Physiology and Cell Biology and associate dean in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, in 1995 she won appointment as the dean of the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, the largest academic unit on the KU campus. President Mason served
as provost of Purdue University from 2001–2007, where she was responsible for
planning, managing, and reviewing all academic programs at Purdue’s West Lafayette
campus and four affiliated branch campuses throughout Indiana.
President Mason is the author of many scientific papers and has obtained a number
of research grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of
Health, the Wesley Research Foundation, and the Lilly Endowment. Her research
interests have focused on the developmental biology, genetics, and biochemistry of
pigment cells and pigments in the skin of vertebrates, and she served as president of
the PanAmerican Society for Pigment Cell Research. Since 2006, President Mason has
been appointed by the President of the United States to three terms on the National
Medal of Science President’s Committee, including a term as chair. She has also
served as chair of the Advisory Committee to the National Science Foundation (NSF)
Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) and chair of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) review panel of the NSF Science
and Technology Centers Program.
President Mason has held many leadership positions in higher education and
national organizations, including president of the Council of Colleges of Arts and
Sciences; member of the board of directors of the American Council on Education
(ACE); member of the executive committee of the Committee on Institutional
Cooperation (CIC); chair of the Iowa Coordinating Council for Post-High School
Education (ICCPHSE); and co-chair of the Task Force on National Energy Policy and
Midwestern Competitiveness of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
Currently, President Mason serves as chair of the Board of Directors Executive
Committee of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU); member
of the Board of Trustees of the Universities Research Association; member of the Board
of Directors of Campus Compact, the national coalition of college and university
presidents committed to fulfilling the civic purposes of higher education; chair of
the Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors; member of the Washington Center
Council of Presidents; and member of the board of trustees of the Herbert Hoover
Presidential Library Association.
President Mason is married to Ken Mason, an educator and textbook author who

“Welcome to a new season of Iowa football! I’m very
excited to join you for another year of cheering the
Iowa black and gold on to success in 2013.
Hawkeye dedication and hard work in the classroom
and in the stadium exemplify the University of Iowa
spirit. Last year, Iowa had fifteen players earn academic
all-Big Ten honors, and three team members earned
district academic All-America honors. We are also
proud that the Hawkeyes have reached a Graduation
Success Rate of 82 percent, which is five points higher
than the average for all Iowa student-athletes and
seventeen points higher than the national average for
student-athletes.
I thank Coach Kirk Ferentz—the dean of Big Ten
coaches—and the entire coaching and athletic
staff for their excellent work with our players. The
coaches’ leadership and teaching, combined with
the dedication and talent of our team members, have
led the Hawkeyes to impressive success. We could not
be more proud of the talented student-athletes who
have performed so well under the leadership of a
great coach and tremendous coaching staff.
I know that Hawkeye fans create a wonderful
atmosphere here in Iowa City on football Saturdays,
and loyal season ticket holders from all 99 Iowa
counties help generate a special brand of excitement
that all fans and visitors enjoy. You certainly seem to
help the Hawkeyes on the field, too—Iowa is 57-17 in
Kinnick Stadium in the last eleven seasons. I am proud
to be a Hawkeye, and I am pleased to welcome you to
another year of great Iowa football action!”
Sally Mason
President

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS - GARY BARTA

Gary Barta

Interest in the Hawkeyes continues to soar.  Sellouts for home games
of the football team at historic Kinnick Stadium and a waiting list for
access to the premium seating areas inside the Paul W. Brechler Press
Box are the norm.  So, too, is Iowa leading the country in attendance
at home wrestling events -- Iowa averaged just under 9,000 fans per
home dual match in 2012-13 – and being ranked among the nation’s
Top 20 in attendance in women’s basketball.
Success on the court has also resulted in spinning turnstiles for home
games of the UI men’s basketball team. The Hawkeyes’ run to New
York City’s Madison Square Garden and the NIT championship game
included a pair of sold out games on Mediacom Court in 15,400-seat
Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Those two sellouts, paired with three regular
season sellouts, helped to push Iowa’s total average per game to
13,625, an improvement of more than 1,700 per game that has pushed
the Hawkeyes into the nation’s Top 25 in per game attendance.
Under Barta’s leadership, Iowa has also embraced new technologies
and that, too, has paid dividends:  Iowa ranks among the nation’s Top
10 in Facebook “friends” and Twitter “followers.”  The UI also delivers
Hawk Talk Daily, a daily e-newsletter, and Hawk Talk Monthly, a
monthly e-magazine, to more than 70,000 friends of the UI and fans
of the Hawkeyes to complement the news, information, video and
photography available on hawkeyesports.com, the official world wide
web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes and the UI’s anchor in the digital world.
Academically, Iowa continues to achieve at a pace that sets the
bar across the state and competes favorably with its peers in the Big
Ten Conference.  UI student-athletes set new records for academic
achievement, according to data released by the NCAA in October
2012, as part of its annual report on the work in the classroom by
student-athletes across the country.
Student-athletes that entered the UI in the fall of 2005 graduated
at a rate of 77 percent, an all-time record for the Hawkeyes. That
mark - which uses the federal government benchmark for graduation
success – is three points better than the 2011 report when Iowa tied
the previous school record of 74 percent set first in 1994-95. It is also
six points better than the UI student body and 12 points better than
that achieved all by student-athletes nationally.          
The UI also set a new record by posting a score of 87 percent in
the NCAA’s “Graduation Success Rate” or GSR, one point better than
what was posted the previous year. It marked the seventh time in the
eight years of the GSR’s existence that Iowa’s student-athletes scored
80 percent or better.
The GSR’s for football (82), men’s basketball (89), and women’s
basketball (100) all bested the national averages in their sport: 68, 65,
and 86, respectively.  
The NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate report for 2012-13 revealed
that for the fourth consecutive year all of Iowa’s 24 sports programs
were comfortably above the 930 threshold that signals a red flag
for the NCAA. The highlights of Iowa’s report include APR’s for 18 of
Iowa’s programs that were better than the national average in that
sport, including football, men’s basketball and wrestling. The APR for
Iowa’s football program – 961 – was an all-time best.
As noted, Barta has been the driving force behind substantial
investments in the facilities used by Iowa’s more than 650 talented
male and female student-athletes. When the Iowa football program
moves into its new $54 million operations center in late summer 2014,
the UI will have completed more than $220 million of construction
and renovation work over the previous eight years.
That list of projects includes a $47 million facelift and addition
to Iowa’s award-winning Carver-Hawkeye Arena, a project that
directly impacted 23 of Iowa’s 24 sports programs, two phases of
improvements to the facilities used daily by Iowa’s football program
– construction of a new indoor practice facility and renovation of
the Kenyon Outdoor Practice facility in Phase I, and construction of a
state-of-the-art operations center in Phase II, a $9 million investment

Director of Athletics
Now in his eighth year as director of athletics
at the University of Iowa, Gary Barta continues
to provide the UI’s more than 600 studentathletes, in addition to more than 225 coaches,
administrators and support staff, the strong
leadership and strategic vision that is the
foundation for the Hawkeyes’ success both
today and in the future.
Barta often notes, “Hope is not a strategy,” and evidence of his
commitment to planning and execution is his second strategic plan
for the UI Athletics Department.  The latest “road map” addresses the
next five years for the Hawkeyes and is built on the same core tenets
contained in the first:  Win. Graduate. Do it right.
The Hawkeyes are coming off a 2012-13 athletics year that saw
eight programs participate in national championship competition,
a record-setting year in terms of graduation rates – 77 percent, and
steady progress in terms of facility improvements, highlighted by
the opening of the new indoor practice facility for the UI’s football
program and the Hoak Family Golf Complex at Finkbine Golf Course,
home of the Hawkeyes’ men’s and women’s golf programs.
  Under Barta’s direction, the UI will continue to put into place the
infrastructure that will provide the foundation for competitive success. 
The 2012-13 basketball season provides an outstanding example
of the impact state-of-the-art facilities can have on a program. 
Boosted by a new practice facility and an enhanced strength and
conditioning facility – two pieces of Barta’s first strategic plan for the
UI – Fran McCaffery’s Iowa men’s basketball team won 25 games and
advanced to the championship game of the 2013 National Invitation
Tournament. Lisa Bluder’s Iowa women’s basketball team earned its
sixth consecutive invitation to the NCAA Tournament.
Another example of investments made under Barta’s direction that
have helped Iowa turn the corner competitively is the UI men’s golf
program.  Barta increased his commitment to the sport when he hired
native Iowan Mark Hankins, who had a vision for the program  that
included a new practice facility.  Barta, Hankins and the Hawkeyes
celebrated the opening of the new $6 million Hoak Family Golf
Complex in February, just three months before Hankins’ nationally
ranked squad made its fifth straight appearance in the national
regional championships. The Hawkeyes have advanced to the NCAA
Championships in three of the last five seasons.
Women’s basketball and men’s golf are two of the eight UI
programs that participated in national championship competition in
2012-13.  At the top of the list was Tom Brands’ wrestling program,
which crowned one national champion, had four wrestlers earn AllAmerica honors, and finished fourth nationally at the end of a season
that included a Big Ten Conference Dual Meet championship.
JD Reive’s men’s gymnastics team had three individuals earn AllAmerica honors after finishing fifth at the national meet.  Larissa
Libby’s women’s gymnastics program advanced to NCAA regional
competition for the sixth straight season.
The Iowa field hockey program under the direction of Tracy
Greisbaum advanced to its sixth NCAA Tournament over the last
nine years and 22nd in school history – a total that ranks No. 1
among the Hawkeyes’ Big Ten Conference peers.  Two Hawkeyes
were named All-Americans.
Iowa’s 200 and 400 medley relay teams and backstroker Grant
Betulius earned All-America honors while leading Marc Long’s
men’s swimming and diving team to a 32nd place at the national
championship. Larry Wieczorek’s UI track and field program
crowned eight All-Americans en route to placing 35th at the
national outdoor championship.

support will also play a critical role in the
development of the Hawkeye Campus.
Barta’s involvement in the UI campus and
the greater Iowa City communities extends
far beyond his position as director of the
UI’s intercollegiate athletics programs.  He
is a member of the President’s Cabinet,
comprised of vice presidents and other
campus leaders that provide counsel to
UI President Sally Mason. That group was
instrumental in the UI’s response to recordsetting flooding that besieged the campus
and the Iowa City and Coralville community
in June 2008.
Barta also represents the UI and the
Hawkeyes at the conference and national
level.  During his first six years at the UI,
he has participated in the creation and
implementation of the Big Ten Network,
the expansion of the Big Ten Conference
and realignment of athletics conferences
nationally, and the Big Ten’s postseason
bowl game agreements that were
successfully implemented in 2010.
Nationally, Barta remains active in the

Kirk Ferentz

Head Football Coach
15th Year at Iowa
Kirk Ferentz is in his 15th season as head
football coach at the University of Iowa. His
tenure as Iowa’s head football coach trails
only Hayden Fry, who led the Hawkeyes for 20
seasons (1979-98). Ferentz is the dean of Big Ten
Conference football coaches. He is tied for third
in coaching longevity among BCS schools and
tied for fifth among all Division I head coaches.
Following the 2009 campaign Ferentz was named Dave McClain
Big Ten Coach of the Year for the third time in eight years. He joins
the select company of Hayden Fry, Joe Paterno and Bo Schembechler
in winning the prestigious award at least three times. He was named
Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2002 and 2004. He was also named
national Coach of the Year by the Associated Press and Walter Camp
Foundation in 2002. Ferentz was named a 2009 Regional Coach of the
Year by the American Football Coaches Association as well. Ferentz
had guided Iowa to 10 bowl appearances in 14 seasons. His six bowl
victories put him in a tie for third all-time among Big Ten coaches.
Under Ferentz, the Hawkeyes have put together the greatest run in
school history. The Hawkeyes won 11 games in 2002 and 2009 and 10
games in 2003 and 2004. With a 7-5 record in 2005, Iowa posted a fouryear mark (2002-05) of 38-12, the best in school history. In addition,
Iowa’s 25 Big Ten wins were the most ever by a Hawkeye team in a fouryear span. No other Big Ten team won more league games over that
four-year period. He is 100-74 (.575) in his 14 years as Iowa’s head coach.
Ferentz and his staff have led the Hawkeyes to bowl eligible status in
11 of the last 12 seasons. The Hawkeyes appeared in six straight bowl
games between 2001 and 2006, the second longest bowl streak in
school history (Iowa appeared in eight straight bowl games from 198188). Iowa’s streak under Ferentz included a string of four straight January
bowls from 2002-05. Iowa was just one of eight schools in the nation to
appear in six January bowl games between 2002-09. The Hawkeyes have
placed in the Big Ten’s first division in 10 of the last 12 seasons.
The Hawkeyes are 57-17 (.770) in Kinnick Stadium since the start of
the 2002 season, winning 25 of their last 33 home games. That mark
includes a school-record 22-game winning streak (2002-05), which
ended in an overtime loss. Iowa sold out 36 straight home games
during that time and has sold out 62 of its last 65 games.
The Hawkeyes posted a 4-8 overall record in 2012. Iowa lost four
games by three points or less, including two games in which the
opponent won on a field goal on the final play. Iowa was the only
team in the nation to have six regular season games decided by three
points or less. Three of Iowa’s wins came over teams that advanced to
postseason play. Senior DB Micah Hyde earned the Tatum-Woodson
Defensive Back of the Year Award in the Big Ten and was selected by
Green Bay in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Iowa posted a 7-6 mark in 2011 (4-4 in Big Ten). WR Marvin
McNutt, Jr., was named the league’s top receiver. McNutt and OL
Riley Reiff were unanimous first-team all-Big Ten selections. McNutt
set both single season and career receiving records, while QB James
Vandenberg passed for over 3,000 yards. For the third straight year,
six Hawkeyes were selected in the NFL Draft. Reiff became Iowa’s third
first round selection in the last three years.
The 2010 Hawkeyes were ranked virtually the entire season. Iowa
capped the season on a high note with a 27-24 win over 12th-ranked
Missouri in the Insight Bowl. The win gave the Hawkeyes an 8-5
season record (4-4 Big Ten, fourth place).
Four Hawkeyes were named to the first all-Big Ten team, while seven
others were named second team. DE Adrian Clayborn was a finalist for
the Lombardi and Ted Hendricks awards, punter Ryan Donahue was a

finalist for the Ray Guy Punter of the Year Award and QB Ricky Stanzi
was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Senior Quarterback of the Year
Award. Six Hawkeyes were selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The 2009 Hawkeyes (11-2) won their first nine games (a school
record) while ranking as high as fourth in the BCS rankings. The loss
of starting QB Ricky Stanzi in the 10th game was a key factor in Iowa
losing two straight games before winning its regular season finale
and the 2010 FedEx Orange Bowl. Iowa finished in a tie for second (62) in the Big Ten, falling to Ohio State on the road in overtime in what
was, essentially, the Big Ten title game.
Seven Hawkeyes earned first team all-Big Ten honors in 2009,
including OL Bryan Bulaga, who was named league Offensive Lineman
of the Year. Six Hawkeyes were selected in the 2010 NFL Draft.
The 2008 Hawkeyes caught fire in the second half of the season by
winning six of their final seven games. Iowa finished the season with
a 9-4 record (5-3 in the Big Ten), with the losses coming by a total of
12 points. A win over previously undefeated and third-ranked Penn
State (24-23) was the biggest highlight of the successful stretch run.
The icing on the cake was a convincing 31-10 win over South Carolina
in the 2009 Outback Bowl at Tampa, Fla. Iowa finished 20th in both
the AP and coaches final polls.
Four Hawkeyes made the 2008 first all-Big Ten team, with two
gaining considerable individual honors. RB Shonn Greene won the
Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top running back. He was also the
winner of the Chicago Tribune’s Silver Football, emblematic of the
league’s most valuable player. He was named the Big Ten’s offensive
Player of the Year by both league coaches and media. Greene was also
the MVP of the Outback Bowl. DT Mitch King was named the league’s
Defensive Lineman of the Year while earning all-league first team
honors for the second straight year.
Iowa’s 6-6 record in 2007 included a 4-4 mark in Big Ten play. Iowa
climbed as high as 12th in the 2006 polls while winning five of its first
six games. Injuries and inopportune mistakes played a role as the
Hawkeyes struggled for consistency during the second half of the
season. Still, a 24-21 loss to 15th-ranked Wisconsin and a two-point loss
to 16th-ranked Texas in the Alamo Bowl showed Iowa’s toughness.
Ferentz led Iowa to a third place Big Ten finish in 2005. An overtime
loss to Michigan and a last-minute, one point loss at Northwestern is
all that kept the Hawkeyes out of contention for a third Big Ten title
in four years. Iowa returned to the Outback Bowl, its fourth straight
January bowl game.
Ferentz led the 2004 Hawkeyes to their second Big Ten title in three
years, being named Big Ten Coach of the Year for the second time. A
victory in the 2005 Capital One Bowl (30-25 over defending national
champion LSU) capped off a third straight appearance in a January
bowl game as Iowa completed a 10-2 overall season (7-1 in the Big Ten).
Iowa put the topping on the 2003 and 2004 seasons by beating
favored SEC teams in New Year’s Day bowl games. The Hawkeyes
ended the 2002, 2003 and 2004 seasons with an eighth place ranking
in the final polls. On a national scale, Iowa’s record over that threeyear span ranked eighth best in the nation.
The 2003 Hawkeyes were the only Big Ten team to beat league
champion Michigan (30-27). Five Iowa players were named to the
2003 first all-Big Ten team and two were named first team all-America.
OL Robert Gallery was named winner of the 2003 Outland Trophy,
which goes to the nation’s top collegiate interior lineman. Iowa put
the topping on the 2003 season by beating a favored Florida team
(37-17) in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day.
Iowa’s 2002 team was probably the most decorated in school
history.
Ferentz was named 2002 Associated Press and The Walter Camp
Football Foundation’s Coach of the Year in college football. He was
also named Big Ten Coach of the Year in a season that saw his team
climb as high as third in the national rankings.

HEAD COACH - KIRK FERENTZ
Ferentz led the 2002 Hawkeyes to their first Big Ten title since 1990
and the most wins (11) in school history. Iowa posted impressive
road wins at Penn State and Michigan on its way to the school’s first
undefeated Big Ten campaign since 1922. The win over Michigan was
the most convincing by a Wolverine opponent, in Ann Arbor, since
1967. Iowa also played in the BCS’s FedEx Orange Bowl for the first time,
having a nine-game winning streak snapped by Southern California.
Winning three of its final four games in 2001, Iowa earned an
invitation to the Sylvania Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, where the
Hawkeyes defeated Texas Tech 19-16 in their first bowl appearance of
the Ferentz era.
The foundation of Kirk’s Iowa program was established in his first
two seasons and began to pay dividends late in the 2000 season
when the Hawkeyes won in double overtime at Penn State. Iowa
returned home the following week to post a 27-17 win over Big Ten
co-champion Northwestern, ranked 12th in the nation at the time.
Ferentz was named Iowa’s 25th head football coach on December
2, 1998. He replaced Fry, who retired after 20 seasons with the
Hawkeyes. At Iowa, Ferentz has an overall record of 100-74, including
a 96-55 mark over the last 12 seasons. He has posted a 59-53 record
in Big Ten play. His career record is 112-95 in 17 years as a collegiate
head coach. Ferentz is one of just seven Big Ten coaches ever to guide
a team to 10 wins or more in three straight seasons.
And while Ferentz has guided the Iowa program to great success on
the field, the Hawkeyes have also made their mark in the classroom.
In the most recent release on academic standings (October, 2013),
Iowa’s football team compiled a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 82,
which is 14 points above the national average. Iowa was one of just
nine bowl teams following the 2011 season to score 80 percent or
better on the NCAA’s “real-time” measurement of academic success.
The 2012-13 Academic Progress Report (APR) showed a score of
961 for Iowa football, a 12-point increase from the previous year and
a score that ranks well above the national average.
In 2005, Iowa tied Southern Cal and Virginia Tech with the best
football student-athlete graduation rate (58%) among all Division I
teams earning a bowl invitation. Among the teams which participated
in bowl games following the 2002, 2003 and 2004 seasons, only Iowa
and Southern Cal ranked in the top five in graduation rates in each of
the three seasons.
Along with Ferentz earning conference and national Coach of the
Year recognition, members of his staff have also been well recognized.
Norm Parker, Iowa’s defensive coordinator for 13 seasons, was named
2011 Assistant Coach of the Year by the Football Coaches Association
of America. Parker was also a finalist for the 2004 and 2005 Frank
Broyles Award, which also recognizes the top Division I assistant
coach in the nation. Parker retired following the 2011 season. Phil
Parker, who is in his 15th year on the staff and his second year as
defensive coordinator, was named by Rivals.com in March, 2011 as a
first team member of its College Football Coach Dream Team.
Rivals.com in 2007 named Eric Johnson one of the top recruiters in
the Big Ten Conference and the nation. Ron Aiken, Iowa’s defensive
line coach through the 2006 season, was the American Football
Coaches Association Division I Assistant Coach of the Year in 2002.
Under Ferentz and his staff, Hawkeye players have gathered all-Big
Ten and national recognition at a record pace. Five Hawkeye players
have earned national Player of the Year honors at their position. Those
include offensive lineman Robert Gallery (Outland Trophy), place kicker
Nate Kaeding (Lou Groza Award), quarterback Brad Banks (Davey
O’Brien Award and AP Player of the Year), tight end Dallas Clark (John
Mackey Award) and running back Shonn Greene (Doak Walker Award).
Banks was also the runner-up in the 2002 Heisman Trophy voting.
Banks (2002) and Greene (2008) were both named Big Ten
Conference Player of the Year and conference MVP. Guard Eric
Steinbach (2002), Gallery (2003), King (2008) and Bulaga (2009) were

all winners of the Big Ten Lineman of the Year award. WR Marvin
McNutt in 2011 and DB Micah Hyde in 2012 were named by the Big
Ten Conference as the Player of the Year at their respective positions.
Another part of Iowa’s success under Ferentz is reflected in the annual
NFL Draft. Six Hawkeyes were drafted in each of the three NFL drafts
from 2010-12. The 18 Hawkeye selections over those three seasons
ranked first in the Big Ten Conference and tied as third best nationally.
Reiff, an offensive tackle who declared for the draft following his
junior season, was the 23rd overall pick (Detroit) in the 2012 NFL Draft.
DL Adrian Clayborn was selected in the first round (20th selection,
Tampa Bay) of the 2011 draft. OL Bryan Bulaga (23rd selection, Green
Bay) was a first round pick in 2010 after also leaving for the NFL
following his junior season. Bulaga was a starter for the Packers in the
2011 Super Bowl, at the time becoming the youngest player ever to
start in the Super Bowl.
Joining Reiff in the 2012 NFL draft were DL Mike Daniels (Green Bay,
fourth round), OL Adam Gettis (Washington, fifth), DB Shaun Prater
(Cincinnati, fifth), WR Marvin McNutt, Jr. (Philadelphia, sixth), and DB
Jordan Bernstine (Washington, seventh).
Additional selections in the 2011 draft included DL Christian
Ballard (Minnesota), QB Ricky Stanzi (Kansas City), OL Julian
Vandervelde (Philadelphia), DL Karl Klug (Tennessee) and DB Tyler
Sash (New York Giants).
Joining Bulaga in the 2010 draft were LB Pat Angerer (Indianapolis),
DB Amari Spievey (Detroit), TE Tony Moeaki (Kansas City), LB A.J. Edds
(Miami) and OL Kyle Calloway (Buffalo).
RB Shonn Greene (New York Jets) and DB Bradley Fletcher (St. Louis
Rams) were the first two players selected, respectively, in the third round
of the 2009 NFL draft. OL Seth Olsen (Denver) was a fourth round selection
and TE Brandon Myers (Oakland) was selected in the sixth round.
In the 2008 NFL draft, DB Charles Godfrey was a third round
selection of the Carolina Panthers, while DE Ken Iwebema was a
fourth round selection (Arizona) and LB Mike Humpal was selected in
the sixth round (Pittsburgh).
LB Chad Greenway was a first round pick in the 2006 draft, with
fellow linebacker Abdul Hodge being selected in the third round.
In the 2007 draft, OL Marshal Yanda (third round, Baltimore), TE
Scott Chandler (fourth, San Diego) and OL Mike Elgin (seventh, New
England) were selected.
In the 2005 NFL draft, DE Matt Roth and DT Jonathan Babineaux
were second round selections and DB Sean Considine was taken in
the fourth round. Considine and Yanda played in the 2013 Super Bowl
for Baltimore, each earning their first NFL championship ring.
Robert Gallery was the second selection in the 2004 NFL draft,
while Bob Sanders was selected in the second round as the first pick
of the Indianapolis Colts. Nate Kaeding, a third round selection of the
San Diego Chargers, became the first kicker since 2000 (and just the
sixth ever) to be selected on the first day of the draft. Kaeding retired
following the 2012 season as one of the most accurate field goal
kickers in NFL history.
Overall, 46 players have been drafted in the past 11 years, with
six first round selections and 10 players being selected among the
top 50 picks. In addition, nine Hawkeyes signed free agent contracts

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR - GREG DAVIS
Greg Davis

Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks

Second Year at Iowa
Recruits Quarterback position

Greg Davis, a 39-year coaching veteran, is in his
second year as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks
coach at the University of Iowa. Davis most recently
served in the same capacity at the University of Texas
for 13 seasons (1998-2010).
Davis was named Frank Broyles Assistant Coach
of the Year in 2005 after Texas won the BCS national
championship. Texas has had just five quarterbacks start a game in the NFL,
and Davis tutored three of them (Colt McCoy, Vince Young, Chris Simms).
Davis has coached in 18 bowl games, including the Holiday Bowl (four), Rose
Bowl (three), Cotton (three), Gator (two), Independence (two), Fiesta, Alamo,
Peach and Hall of Fame. Davis coached in the BCS national championship
game twice (2006 and 2010 Rose Bowl games) and competed in the Grantland
Rice Bowl as a player at McNeese State.
Under his guidance, the Texas offense produced 10 of the top 11 passing
seasons, 11 of the top 13 total offense campaigns and the top nine scoring
years in school history. Texas averaged 39.0 points per game from 2000-09,
which ranked second nationally and first among BCS conference schools. In
2005, Texas set a then-NCAA record with 652 total points and a school record
by averaging 50.2 ppg.
Under Davis, five Longhorns were named Big 12 Offensive Players of the
Year, including RB Ricky Williams, 1998; QB Major Applewhite, 1999; QB Vince
Young, 2005; QB Colt McCoy, 2008 and 2009. At Texas, Davis tutored three
finalists for the Heisman Trophy, including two players who were second in
Heisman voting, two winners each of the Walter Camp Football Foundation
Players of the Year, Maxwell Award, Davey O’Brien Award, Manning Award and
Archie Griffin Award. He tutored a winner of the Unitas Golden Arm Award, a
Sporting News Player of the Year and Chevrolet Offensive Player of the Year.
In 2009, Texas averaged 39.3 points per game (third NCAA), 421.2 total yards
(29th NCAA), 273.6 passing yards (22nd NCAA) and 147.6 yards rushing. Senior
QB Colt McCoy led the nation in completion percentage (70.6) for the second
straight year while taking home the WCFF Player of the Year Award, Maxwell
Award, Davey O’Brien Award, Unitas Golden Arm Award and Manning Award.
WR Jordan Shipley was also a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award.
In 2008, the Longhorns finished in the nation’s Top 10 in pass efficiency
(second/175.0), scoring offense (fifth/42.4 ppg), passing offense (seventh/308.3
ypg) and total offense (ninth/475.8 ypg). McCoy set a NCAA single-season
record for completion percentage at 76.7 and set single-season school records
for completions (332), yards (3,859), touchdowns (34) and passer rating
(173.8). For the first time in school history and 11th in NCAA history, Texas had
two receivers with at least 85 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards.
In 2007, Texas averaged 462.9 yards of total offense (13th NCAA), 207.5
yards rushing (17th NCAA) and 37.2 points per game (14th NCAA). McCoy
completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 3,303 yards (No. 3 on Texas’ singleseason list) and 22 touchdowns.
Despite breaking in a freshman quarterback in McCoy in 2006, Davis helped
Texas remain one of the nation’s top offenses. McCoy finished the season as a
Davey O’Brien Award semifinalist and was named National Freshman of the
Year by Sporting News and the Touchdown Club of Columbus. As a whole,
Texas finished 2006 ranked sixth in scoring offense (35.9 ppg) and 22nd in total
offense (391.5 ypg).
Behind Davis’ leadership, the Texas offense had a record-breaking year in
2005, one in which Davis was recognized as the nation’s top assistant coach
with the Frank Broyles Award. The Longhorns’ 652 points were the most scored
in NCAA history. They also set the school record for total offense with 6,657
yards. Texas became only the fifth team to average over 50 points per game
(50.2 ppg) and 500 yards per game (512.1 ypg) in NCAA history.
Young also flourished under Davis in 2005, winning both the Davey O’Brien
and Manning Awards as the nation’s top quarterback. He also won the Maxwell
Award and was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. He became the first player
in NCAA history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a season.
The Longhorns took advantage of a veteran offensive line and All-America
RB Cedric Benson in 2004 to finish the season ranked second in the country in
rushing offense (299.2 ypg), seventh in total offense (464.4 ypg) and 12th in
scoring (35.3 ppg). As a sophomore, Young completed nearly 60 percent of his
passes for 1,849 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,079 yards and
14 scores and was the Rose Bowl MVP.

In 2003, Davis took an offense with two first-year starting quarterbacks and
led it to, what was, the best total offense season in school history (5,709 yards)
and a then-school record 533 points. The 3,023 rushing yards were the most
for Texas since 1977.
As a redshirt freshman, Young became the first quarterback in school history
to post better than 900 yards rushing (998) and passing (1,155) while earning
Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors. Junior Chance Mock had the nation’s top
touchdown-to-interception ratio (16 TDs/2 INTs).
Under Davis in 2002, senior quarterback Chris Simms established school
single-season records for touchdown passes (26) and touchdowns accounted
for (30). His 3,207 passing yards and 3,083 yards total offense ranked second
best for a single season.
Simms is second in Texas history with a 58.7 completion percentage (535of-911) and second in passer efficiency rating (138.4). He ranks second on the
school’s all-time touchdown passes list (58) and fourth in passing yards (7,097).
One year earlier, Simms, the Big 12 leader in passing efficiency (144.25),
started 12 games and threw 22 touchdown passes (No. 2 on UT’s season list) as
the Longhorns posted a 10-2 record in his 12 starts.
Davis spent 1999 directing an offense that was the first in school history and
one of only four nationally to boast a 3,000-yard passer as well as a 1,000-yard
rusher and receiver. He was named a finalist for the 1999 Frank Broyles Award
as the nation’s top assistant.
Applewhite set school season marks for passing yards (3,357) and total
offense (3,211) en route to Big 12 co-Offensive Player of the Year honors.
In Davis’ first year at Texas in 1998, the Longhorns became just the second unit
in NCAA Division I-A history to feature a 2,000-yard rusher (Ricky Williams) and
passer (Major Applewhite), as well as a 1,000-yard receiver (Wane McGarity). An
early season injury forced redshirt freshman Major Applewhite into the lineup.
Applewhite went on to set school freshman records for passing yards (2,453)
and touchdown passes (18). He was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year.
Prior to his stint at Texas, Davis helped develop the quarterback duo of Chris
Keldorf and Oscar Davenport, who teamed to complete 60% of their passes for
more than 2,700 yards in each of Davis’ two years at North Carolina.
Davis was the head coach at Tulane for four seasons (1988-91), where
he succeeded Mack Brown. He spent three seasons (1985-87) as assistant
head coach and wide receivers coach at Tulane under Brown. Davis spent
two seasons (1992-93) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at
Arkansas and two years (1994-95) as Georgia’s passing game coordinator
before joining Brown at North Carolina.
While at Georgia, Davis helped lead the Bulldogs to the 1995 Peach Bowl
despite injuries to the team’s top two quarterbacks. He did so by preparing
converted slot back Hines Ward for the starting quarterback position. Ward
set a school bowl game record by completing 31-of-59 passes for 413 yards in
the Peach Bowl. Davis also coached first team All-American Eric Zeier, a thirdround pick of the Cleveland Browns.
Davis began his college coaching career at Texas A&M, serving as the
Aggies’ quarterbacks coach (1978-84). He then joined Brown as assistant head
coach and wide receivers coach at Tulane in 1985.
Davis began his career in the high school ranks while working toward his
master’s degree. He coached at Barbe High School (Lake Charles, La.) from
1973-74 and Port Neches-Groves High School (Port Neches, Texas) from 197577, where he helped lead the Indians to the 1975 Texas 4A state title.
The native of Groves, Texas, earned his bachelor’s degree (sports
administration, 1973) and master’s degree (1977) from McNeese State.
Greg and his wife, Patsy, have two children, Greg Jr. and Stacey, and five
grandchildren. Greg Jr. and his wife, Karen, have two daughters, Taylor and
Kaylen. Stacey and her husband, Kory, have three children, a daughter, Brook,
and two sons, K.J. and Davis.

Phil was named by Rivals.com in March, 2011, as a
first team member of its College Football Assistant Coach Dream Team.
Iowa has participated in 10 bowl games since 2001. The Hawkeyes won
bowl games following the 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons, defeating ranked
opponents in both 2009 and 2010. The Hawkeyes have ranked in the final
top 10 of both major polls four times in the past 11 seasons.
Iowa has appeared in six January bowl games since 2001. The Hawkeyes
have won six-of-10 bowl games under Kirk Ferentz and his staff, including
four January bowl victories. The January Bowl wins have come over Florida
(2004 Outback), LSU (2005 Capital One), South Carolina (2009 Outback) and
Georgia Tech (2010 Orange).
Iowa has won 89 games over the past 11 seasons, including 52 Big Ten
games. The Hawkeyes earned a share of the Big Ten title in both 2002 and
2004 and tied for second in 2009. Iowa has finished in the Big Ten’s first
division in 10 of the past 12 years.
Following the 2012 season, senior defensive back Micah Hyde was
named the recipient of the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year in
the Big Ten Conference, earning first team All-Big Ten honors. In addition,
defensive end Joe Gaglione and linebackers James Morris and Anthony
Hitchens all earned honorable mention recognition. Hyde was selected by
Green Bay in the fifth round of the NFL Draft.
Iowa’s secondary in 2011 was led by senior Shaun Prater, who earned first
team all-Big Ten honors for the second straight season, junior Micah Hyde, who
earned second team honors and senior safety Jordan Bernstine. Over the past
five seasons, Iowa ranks among the national leaders with 83 interceptions.
Prater was selected by Cincinnati in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft,
while Bernstine was selected by Washington in the seventh round.
The defensive secondary played a key role in Iowa’s success in 2010. Iowa
was second in the Big Ten in pass efficiency defense (115.1) and interceptions
(19). Iowa tied for 11th in the nation in interceptions, returning four thefts
for touchdowns. Defensive backs Tyler Sash and Shaun Prater were both
named first team all-Big Ten, while Brett Greenwood earned second team
honors and Micah Hyde was honorable mention.
Sash started the final 34 games of his career and ranks fifth in career
interceptions. He declared for the NFL following his junior season in 2010
and was a sixth round selection of the New York Giants. Sash earned a Super
Bowl ring in his rookie season with the Giants in 2011.
Iowa’s success in 2009 was due, in part, to the play of the secondary.
Iowa ranked third in the nation in pass efficiency defense and fourth in pass
defense while leading the Big Ten in both categories. The Hawkeyes tied
for fifth nationally with 21 interceptions while ranking eighth in scoring
defense and 10th in total defense. Safety Tyler Sash and cornerback Amari
Spievey both earned first team all-Big Ten recognition, while safety Brett
Greenwood was a second team selection. Spievey declared for the NFL
Draft following his junior season in 2009 and was selected in the third
round by the Detroit Lions.
In 2008, Iowa ranked fourth in the nation while tying a school record with
23 interceptions. The Hawkeyes led the Big Ten and ranked fifth nationally
in pass efficiency defense (98.3) and scoring defense (13.0). Spievey earned
second team all-conference honors, while Bradley Fletcher and Greenwood
claimed honorable mention recognition.
Fletcher enjoyed an outstanding senior season in 2008, starting all 13
games. He was selected by St. Louis in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
Under Parker’s direction, safety Bob Sanders became the ninth Iowa player
to earn first team all-Big Ten honors for three seasons (2001, 2002, and 2003).
Sanders earned second team All-America honors in 2003 and was taken by
Indianapolis in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He ranks seventh in
career tackles (348). Sanders earned all-Pro recognition with the Colts in 2005

New York Jets in the NFL and now plays in the Canadian Football League.
He was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2011, becoming the
first defensive back to win the award. He is a two-time CFL All-Star.
Safeties Derek Pagel and Sean Considine joined the Iowa program as
walk-ons and earned their way into the starting line-up. Each helped the
Hawkeyes win a Big Ten title as seniors and both were NFL Draft selections.
Pagel earned second team all-Big Ten honors in 2002 was selected in the
fifth round of the 2003 draft. Considine was a fourth round selection in
2005 after earning honorable mention all-Big Ten recognition. He joined
the Baltimore Ravens in 2012 and played a key role on special teams for the
Super Bowl champions.
In 1999, Iowa’s secondary was led by the play of safety Matt Bowen.
Bowen led the team in tackles as both a junior and senior. He was voted
second team all-Big Ten and was a sixth round selection of the St. Louis Rams
in the NFL Draft. Bowen played several seasons in the NFL (Washington and
Buffalo) following his college career.
Parker was the defensive backfield coach at Toledo for 11 seasons prior

Brian Ferentz

Offensive Line
Second Year at Iowa
Recruits Illinois and Ohio
Brian Ferentz, a three-year letterman as an
offensive lineman at the University of Iowa, is in
his second year as Iowa’s offensive line coach.
Brian joined the Hawkeye staff after spending the
previous four years with the NFL’s New England
Patriots.
Iowa’s offensive line in 2012 was led by senior center James Ferentz
and senior tackle/guard Matt Tobin, two players who earned all-Big
Ten recognition. In addition, redshirt freshman Austin Blythe earned
FWAA Freshman All-America honors. Iowa’s offensive line put together
a string of four consecutive games without allowing a quarterback sack
and allowed less than two sacks in six of 12 games overall. As a team the
Hawkeyes ranked second in the Big Ten and 19th in the nation in fewest
penalties (4.6) per game.
Brian, the son of head coach Kirk Ferentz, served as New England’s
tight ends coach in 2011, helping the Patriots win the AFC championship
and a spot in the 2012 Super Bowl. Brian was an offensive assistant
coach in 2010, working exclusively with the tight ends. He spent 2009
as a coaching assistant after serving as a scouting assistant for the
Patriots during the 2008 season.
Under his direction, two Patriot rookie tight ends made a big impact
in 2010. The New England duo ranked first and second, among all
rookie tight ends with 10 and six touchdown catches, respectively. They
became the first pair of rookie tight ends with at least five touchdowns
in the same season in NFL history. Rob Gronkowski’s 10 touchdown
receptions rank second in NFL history for a rookie tight end, as only
Mike Ditka (12) had more touchdowns as a rookie.
Rob Gronkowski set additional records in 2011, including individual
records for receiving touchdowns by a tight end (17), total touchdowns
by a tight end (18) and receiving yards by a tight end (1,327). As a
tandem, the Patriot tight ends also set three NFL single season records:
total touchdowns by a tight end tandem (24), receptions by a tight end
tandem (169) and total yards by a tight end tandem (2,237).
Brian played both offensive guard and center during his Iowa career.
He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a senior in 2005,
and was academic All-Big Ten in 2003. He was a team captain as a senior
and played on Iowa teams that were among the most successful in
school history. Brian was part of two Big Ten championship teams (2002
and 2004).

He started at center in every game as a senior in 2005. He started
eight games at right guard in 2004 as the Hawkeyes earned a share of
the Big Ten title and a bid to the Capital One Bowl. Iowa won each of
the eight games he started after he had missed the first four games of
the year due to injury. Ferentz earned the starting center position as a
sophomore and started five games before missing the second half of
the season due to injury.
During his tenure as a player, Iowa participated in the BCS FedEx
Orange Bowl, two Outback Bowls, and a Capital One Bowl, compiling
an overall record of 38-12. The Hawkeyes defeated Florida in the 2004
Outback Bowl and defending national champion LSU in the 2005
Capital One Bowl.
Ferentz was a member of Iowa’s Leadership Council and as a senior
was the recipient of the Hayden Fry “Extra Heartbeat Award”. The annual
award goes to the Hawkeye player who gives extraordinary effort on
the field. He was recognized with the “Next Man In” award as a junior.
Brian was selected to participate in the 2006 Hula Bowl following his
Hawkeye career. He signed a free agent contract with Atlanta and was
a member of the Falcons practice squad in 2006. He was with the New
Orleans Saints throughout their 2007 training camp.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Iowa in 2006.
Ferentz was born March 28, 1983 in Iowa City. Brian and his wife,
Nikki, have a baby daughter, Presley.

Kennedy joins the Iowa program with 22 years
of experience as a college coach, including the
past two seasons as wide receivers coach at the
University of Colorado.
Kennedy has coached four players to All-America honors, while
nine of his players have earned first team all-conference recognition.
He has coached in 12 bowl games, including four BCS games (two
BCS championship games, one Rose Bowl and one Fiesta Bowl). In his
first season at Colorado, he helped mold senior Toney Clemons into
one of the nation’s top receivers. Clemons was selected by Pittsburgh
in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Kennedy joined the Colorado staff from the University of Texas,
where he spent seven seasons (2004-10) as wide receivers coach,
the last six as the assistant recruiting coordinator. In his time at
Texas, Kennedy coached in two BCS National Championship games,
the 2005 Rose Bowl victory over USC when the Longhorns won the
national championship, and in 2009 against Alabama.
Kennedy’s first season in Austin came immediately after the Longhorns
had lost three wide receivers to the National Football League. He
proceeded to build a receiver corps that included three Biletnikoff Award
candidates, including two semifinalists and one finalist. In 2008, Jordan
Shipley and Quan Crosby both surpassed 85 receptions and 1,000 yards,
becoming the 11th duo in NCAA history to each surpass 1,000 yards. In
2009, Shipley was a consensus All-American, setting Texas records for
catches (116) and receiving yards (1,485), while matching the school
record for receiving touchdowns (13).
His receivers amassed 142 catches in 2005, helping the Longhorns
to the third-best single-season passing mark in school history. With
the emergence of Colt McCoy at quarterback in 2006, the receivers
increased those totals to 158 receptions for 2,180 yards and 25
touchdowns. In 2007, the receivers caught 187 passes for 2,275 yards
and 18 touchdowns before the emergence of Cosby and Shipley.  
Shipley earned All-America honors in two seasons. Kennedy also
coached five receivers to seven All-Big 12 honors in seven years.
Kennedy joined the Texas program from Washington, where he
tutored wide receiver Reggie Williams to two All-America campaigns
before he became the No. 9 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. Williams
set UW’s single season mark for receptions (94) and receiving yards
(1,454) in 2002. The following season he was fourth in the NCAA in
receptions (7. 4 per game) and 16th in yardage (92. 4).  He finished his
career as Washington’s all-time leading receiver with 238 receptions
and 3,536 yards.
He coached running backs at Arizona in 2001, where he coached
sophomore Clarence Farmer to first-team All-Pac 10 honors. Farmer
led the league in rushing (111. 7 yards per game), a mark that ranked
21st nationally.  
Prior to Arizona, Kennedy had a six-year tenure at Wake Forest,
coaching the Demon Deacon running backs in 1999-2000 after four
years (1995-98) as receivers coach. He mentored Desmond Clark,
the ACC’s leading receiver, and Jammie Deese, who was second in
the ACC in receiving, in 1998. After moving to the running backs
spot, he coached Morgan Kane, who rushed for 1,161 yards and 10
touchdowns in 1999 while becoming the third leading rusher in
school history.

led the nation in receiving yards in 1994. Both Harris and Yarborough
earned All-America honors for the Cowboys.
Kennedy began his coaching career in the Big Ten Conference with
two graduate assistant positions. He coached at Illinois in 1990 and
1991 and at Penn State in 1992. At Penn State, he worked with the

Reese Morgan

Defensive Line
14th Year at Iowa
Recruits Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota and
South Dakota
Reese Morgan, one of the most successful high
school coaches in Iowa prep history, is in his 14th year
as a member of the University of Iowa coaching staff.
He is in his second year as Iowa’s defensive line coach.
Morgan served as Iowa’s offensive line coach for nine
seasons after spending the first three years on the staff as tight ends coach
and recruiting coordinator.
Iowa has participated in 10 bowl games since 2001. The Hawkeyes won
bowl games following the 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons, defeating ranked
opponents in both 2009 and 2010. The Hawkeyes have ranked in the final top
10 of both major polls four times in the past 11 seasons.
Iowa has appeared in six January bowl games since 2001. The Hawkeyes
have won six-of-10 bowl games under Kirk Ferentz and his staff, including four
January bowl victories. The January Bowl wins have come over Florida (2004
Outback), LSU (2005 Capital One), South Carolina (2009 Outback) and Georgia
Tech (2010 Orange).
Iowa has won 89 games over the past 11 seasons, including 52 Big Ten
games. The Hawkeyes earned a share of the Big Ten title in both 2002 and 2004
and tied for second in 2009. Iowa has finished in the Big Ten’s first division in 10
of the past 12 years.
Among the reasons for Iowa’s success has been the play of Iowa’s offensive
line, working under the direction of Morgan. With two new starters in 2011,
the Hawkeye offensive line led the way as Iowa’s offense featured a 3,000-yard
passing quarterback and a running back and wide receiver who each gained
over 1,300 yards.
Junior tackle Riley Reiff earned first team all-Big Ten honors in 2011, along with
earning All-America recognition from several outlets. In addition, senior guard
Adam Gettis was named second team all-Big Ten and junior center James Ferentz
and senior tackle Markus Zusevics earned honorable mention recognition.
Reiff declared for the NFL Draft following his junior season and was selected
in the first round by the Detroit Lions. As the 23rd overall selection, Reiff
became Iowa’s third first round selection in three years. In addition, Gettis was
selected in the fifth round by Washington and Zusevics signed an NFL free
agent contract with New England the day after the draft. All three were on
NFL rosters throughout the 2012 season. Iowa has had at least one offensive
lineman selected in eight of the last 11 NFL drafts.
Iowa’s offensive line featured three first-year starters in 2010. Still, the Hawkeyes
ranked among the national leaders in fewest penalties, fewest penalty yards,
QB sacks allowed and fewest turnovers. Senior guard Julian Vandervelde and
sophomore tackle Riley Reiff earned second team all-Big Ten honors. Vandervelde
was selected in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by Philadelphia.
In 2009, tackle Bryan Bulaga was named Offensive Lineman of the Year in the
Big Ten, earning first team all-conference honors. Dace Richardson returned to
earn first team honors after missing over a year and a half due to injury.
Bulaga declared for the NFL Draft following his junior season in 2009 and
was the 23rd player selected in the 2010 NFL Draft when he was taken by the
Green Bay Packers. Tackle Kyle Calloway was selected in the sixth round by the
Buffalo Bills. Bulaga earned a starting spot at right tackle for the Super Bowl
champion Packers as a rookie, becoming the youngest player ever to start in
the Super Bowl.
Iowa, in 2008, ranked third in the Big Ten and 26th nationally in rushing
yards per game (188.7). Iowa featured running back Shonn Greene, who
earned the Doak Walker Award as the top running back in the nation. Greene
was the only running back in the nation to rush for over 100 yards in every
game during the 2008 season.
Senior Seth Olsen led the way for the Hawkeyes in 2008, earning first team
all-Big Ten honors and All-American recognition. Center Rob Bruggeman and
tackles Kyle Calloway and Bryan Bulaga all earned second team all-conference
recognition. Olsen was selected in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by
Denver. Bruggeman signed a free agent contract with Tampa Bay immediately
following the draft.
The 2006 Hawkeyes ranked third in the Big Ten in total offense (just a yard
behind second place Ohio State) and second in pass offense. In 2005, Iowa
boasted the Big Ten’s leading rusher and the league’s best red zone offense.

ASSISTANT COACH - REESE MORGAN
In the 2007 NFL Draft, Marshal Yanda (Baltimore) was selected in the third
round and Mike Elgin (New England) was a seventh round selection. In addition,
Mike Jones signed a free agent contract with the San Diego Chargers. Jones was
a first team all-Big Ten selection, while Yanda earned second team honors. Elgin
was a first team academic All-American in each of his final two seasons. Yanda
has started at both guard and tackle for the Ravens over the past six seasons. He
played a key role in Baltimore’s drive to the 2013 Super Bowl championship and
has been selected for the Pro Bowl the last two seasons.
In 2005 the Hawkeyes averaged 30 points a game behind quarterback Drew
Tate and Big Ten rushing leader Albert Young. Senior center Brian Ferentz
started the final 20 games of his career in 2004 and 2005 and signed a free
agent contract with Atlanta immediately following the 2006 NFL Draft.
Due to a number of injuries to Iowa running backs in 2004, Iowa developed
one of the most dangerous passing attacks in the nation. The Hawkeyes scored
23 points or more in the final five games of the season, including 30 points in
wins over Wisconsin and LSU. For the year, Iowa ranked second in the Big Ten
in passing offense, pass efficiency and red zone offense.
Right tackle Pete McMahon was the lone senior in 2004 in the offensive line.
Facing two of the more-highly regarded defensive ends in the nation in Iowa’s
final two games, McMahon led by example by controlling his opponents, who
were both first round selections in the NFL Draft. McMahon was taken in the
NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders.
Anchored by consensus All-American and Outland Trophy winner Robert
Gallery at left tackle, Iowa’s offensive line had four new starters to start the
2003 season. By the end of the year, in which the Hawkeyes won 10 games
and featured RB Fred Russell with over 1,300 rushing yards, the offensive line
had meshed together as one of Iowa’s strong points. The Hawkeyes ended the
season by rushing for over 200 yards in a win at Wisconsin and in the Outback
Bowl win over Florida.
Gallery was a consensus first team All-American at the end of the year. He
was the second player selected in the NFL Draft, being taken by the Oakland
Raiders. In becoming Iowa’s third Outland Trophy winner, he became the
second Outland Trophy winner coached by Morgan. As the head coach at
Benton Community HS, Morgan coached Chad Hennings, the 1987 winner,
who was a defensive tackle at the Air Force Academy. Hennings is a member
of the College Football Hall of Fame.
As tight ends coach in 2002, Morgan coached tight end Dallas Clark to
consensus All-America honors. Clark was also named winner of the John
Mackey Award, which goes annually to college football’s top tight end. Clark was
named to at least seven first team All-America teams. Clark earned a Super Bowl
championship with the Indianapolis Colts and earned all-Pro honors in 2009.
Morgan became part of the Iowa staff after eight years as head coach at
West HS in Iowa City. West won state Class 4A (largest class in the state) titles in
1995, 1998 and 1999. Morgan left the program with a 26-game winning streak.
Between 1994 and 1999 his West High School teams were 62-7, while his
overall record at West was 67-20. He has totaled 146 career prep victories and
is a member of the Iowa High School Coach’s Hall of Fame. He also served as
Assistant Principal and Dean of Students at West.
Reese also served as a teacher (1973-92), assistant football coach (1973-77)
and head football coach (1978-91) at Benton Community High School. He led
Benton Community into the state playoffs on three occasions.
Morgan attended St. Mary’s High School in Lorain, Ohio. He lettered
three times in football and one year in track and field. Reese was a four-year
letterman (linebacker) at Wartburg College and was team captain as a senior
in 1971.
Morgan earned his B.A. degree in education from Wartburg and earned
a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of
Northern Iowa.
Morgan was born June 22, 1950. Reese and his wife, Jo, have two daughters,
Jessica and Caitlin, along with granddaughters Morgan and Hayden, and
grandsons Cade and Jace.

level for 17 seasons. He served as the head coach at Virginia Military
Institute (2006-07), Massachusetts (1986-91) and Richmond (19952003).

Reid coached the outside linebackers for the Miami Dolphins in
2008 and 2009. In his first season overseeing the Dolphins’ outside
linebackers, Joey Porter produced a career-high 17.5 sacks, a figure
that ranked second in the NFL in 2008. Miami hoisted the AFC East
Division Championship banner for the first time in eight seasons. It
also marked the most-ever sacks by a Dolphins linebacker and thirdmost overall. For his performance, Porter was named to the AFC ProBowl, the first Dolphins outside linebacker to earn that honor since
1992. Reid also coached former Hawkeye Matt Roth in his transition
from defensive end to outside linebacker.

Chris White

Running Backs and Special Teams
First Year at Iowa
Recruits New Jersey, Maryland and
Pennsylvania
Chris White joined the Iowa coaching staff in
February, 2013, after spending the previous four
years on the coaching staff of the Minnesota
Vikings. White coaches Hawkeye running backs
and coordinates special teams.
Prior to his four seasons with the Vikings, White coached on the
collegiate level for 17 years. For the past four seasons, White has
assisted in coaching the Viking special teams. In 2012, Minnesota
posted a 10-6 record, earning a Wild Card playoff berth while setting
a team record for biggest turnaround in victories from one season to
the next.
In 2012, Minnesota’s special teams were recognized with the No.
1 ranking in the well-respected Dallas Morning News season-ending
special teams’ evaluations. The special teams unit was headlined by
rookie kicker Blair Walsh’s record-setting season, as he earned All-Pro
and Pro Bowl honors. His 141 points are the second-most ever by an
NFL rookie and rank second in club history.
Over the past two seasons, the Vikings 26.8-yard kickoff return
average led the NFL. Defensively, the Vikings led the NFL by allowing
only 18 kickoff returns of 20-plus yards. Minnesota was third in the NFL
with an average starting field position at the 24.6 yard line following
kickoff returns, and had six kickoff returns of 40-plus yards. The return
units earned a place in the Minnesota record book by returning both
a kick and punt return for a touchdown at Detroit.
After joining the Vikings in 2009, White helped oversee a special
teams unit that sent a pair of members to the Pro Bowl and made an
impact on the Vikings record book along the way. The Vikings special
teams were instrumental in the team winning a second consecutive
NFC North title and winning 12 games in the regular season, tied for
the second-best total in team history.
The 2009 special teams were represented at the Pro Bowl by
returner Percy Harvin and cover man Heath Farwell. Harvin set a
Vikings record by returning a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns
during the season, including a 101-yard return that ties as the secondlongest in Vikings history.
White joined the Vikings after a nine-year stint at Syracuse
University where, at different times throughout his tenure, he coached
wide receivers and tight ends, and was the special teams’ coordinator
and recruiting coordinator. White’s nine seasons at Syracuse were
highlighted by a 2001 Insight Bowl victory and a share of the Big East
championship in 2004. A combined seven units ranked in the nation’s
top 20 under White’s direction as special teams coordinator from
2000-03.
White served as the Orange’s wide receivers coach and recruiting
coordinator, a post he moved to prior to the 2005 season. He spent
his first three years at Syracuse working with the tight ends and as
special teams’ coordinator. From the start of the 2000 season until he
left his post as special teams coordinator in 2003, only seven teams
in the country blocked more kicks than the Orange (22). Syracuse
also scored eight touchdowns on special teams during the same time
frame.
White served a dual-role at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo in 1999,
working as both defensive and special teams’ coordinator. White
spent three seasons at UNLV (1996-98), serving as linebackers coach
and special teams’ coordinator. The lone head coaching job of White’s
career came during a three-year stint with Bishop Manogue High
School in Las Vegas from 1994-96. He was named the Northern
Nevada Coach of the Year in 1996.

ASSISTANT COACH - CHRIS WHITE
White’s first full-time role in coaching came as the assistant
quarterbacks coach for the College of the Holy Cross (Mass., 199394). In his two years at that post, both of the Crusaders starting
quarterbacks ended their respective seasons with quarterback
efficiency ratings over 100. White began his coaching career as a
graduate assistant coach at Syracuse (1990-91) and Arkansas State
(1992).
In his first stint at Syracuse, White worked with former Vikings
quarterback coach Kevin Rogers and Paul Pasqualoni. The Orange
won the 1990 Aloha and 1991 Hall of Fame bowls.
During his college career, White was a four-year starter at
quarterback for Colby College (Maine) and was a team captain as a
senior. As a prep, he attended Philips Exeter Academy. White earned
his bachelor’s degree in government in 1990 and a master’s degree in
education from Syracuse in 1992.
White was born June 29, 1967, and is a native of Groveland, Mass.
He and his wife, Angel, have two daughters, Payton and Riley.

2013 SEASON PREVIEW
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz felt his team had a positive spring
practice leading into the 2013 season, and feels his team will
continue to show improvement throughout the month of
August in preparing for the upcoming season.
Iowa will open fall practice with 14 returning starters,
including its two leading rushers and four of the five leading
receivers on offense, and its top three tacklers on defense.
Still, there are a number of spots to fill on the depth chart,
even after the young Hawkeye team was able to add valuable
experience throughout the spring. The added experience of
last season could play a major role in Iowa’s quest to reverse its
2012 fortunes of five losses by an average of 3.2 points per loss.
Iowa’s roster features 39 lettermen, including six returning
starters on offense and eight on defense, along with senior
placekicker Mike Meyer, sophomore punter Connor Kornbrath
and senior long snapper Casey Kreiter. There are 16 seniors
and eight of the 39 lettermen have earned three letters.
Experienced players return at each position, with the exception
of quarterback, where none of the candidates have taken a
snap for the Hawkeyes, and fullback.
Iowa was the only team in the nation to play six games during
the 2012 regular season that were decided by three points or
less. While posting a 4-8 overall record (2-6 in Big Ten play), five
of Iowa’s losses came by a combined total of 19 points. In two
games, Iowa’s opponent scored the winning points on a field
goal on the final play of the game.
The 2012 schedule proved to be a strong one. Nine of
Iowa’s 12 opponents played in bowl games, while Penn State,
ineligible for postseason play, also won eight games. Iowa’s
victories included a win over Orange Bowl participant Northern
Illinois and bowl participants Minnesota and Michigan State.
With the opening win over Northern Illinois, Iowa defeated a
BCS bowl team for the fifth time in six years.
Ferentz heads into his 15th season as Iowa’s head coach.
Ferentz is tied for fourth among all FBS coaches in longevity.
Ferentz has posted a 100-74 record with the Hawkeyes,
including a 98-56 record over the past 12 seasons. Iowa has
played in 10 bowl games under Ferentz, posting a 6-4 record
that includes four January bowl victories and a 1-1 mark in BCS
bowl games. Ferentz’ six bowl victories tie for third most ever
among Big Ten coaches.
The Iowa coaching staff also has a number of changes.
Bobby Kennedy takes over as wide receivers coach, while
Chris White is coaching Iowa’s running backs and coordinating
special teams. Jim Reid is in his first year working with the Iowa
defense, where he will coach linebackers, and DJ Hernandez
will coach tight ends after joining the program as a graduate
assistant.
Off the field, Hawkeye players continued to be recognized
for their efforts in the classroom. Fifteen Hawkeyes earned
academic all-Big Ten recognition in 2012, while DL Steve Bigach,
LB James Morris and QB James Vandenberg were named to
the Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District Six team. Bigach
and Vandenberg, both seniors, were named to the district
team for the second straight year. Under Kirk Ferentz, 20 Iowa
players have been named academic all-America 38 times.

The returning offensive starters include leading rusher
Mark Weisman (159-815-8 TDs) and leading receiver Kevonte
Martin-Manley (52-571-2 TDs). Damon Bullock was second in
rushing (135-513-3 TDs), while tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz was
third on the team in receptions (45-433-1 TD).
The offensive line returns seven lettermen, and all seven
have started games during their Iowa careers. Right tackle
Brett Van Sloten started all 12 games in 2012, while left
tackle Brandon Scherff started seven games before a seasonending injury. Austin Blythe started nine games as a redshirt
freshman, earning Freshman All-America honors, and Conor
Boffeli started the final three games of the season. Others who
have started games include Andrew Donnal, Nolan MacMillan
and Jordan Walsh.
The defense returns its three leading tacklers from 2012 in
linebackers Anthony Hitchens, James Morris and Christian
Kirksey, a trio of seniors. A number of Iowa’s defensive linemen
gained the most experience of their careers in 2012, and only
added to that experience throughout the spring.
Iowa’s secondary returns three starters in cornerback B.J.
Lowery and safeties Nico Law and Tanner Miller. The Hawkeyes
will be without cornerback Micah Hyde, who earned first team
All-Big Ten honors and was named the winner of the 2012
Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year Award. Hyde,
selected by Green Bay in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft,
also handled punt returns the past two seasons.
The Hawkeye special teams return PK Mike Meyer, punter
Connor Kornbrath and long snapper Casey Kreiter. Senior WR
Jordan Cotton ranked as one of the top kick return specialists
in 2012, leading the Big Ten and ranking 13th in the nation
with an average of over 28 yards per return.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“The players worked hard through the winter and did the
same during spring practice. We are improving, we’re a better
team than we were at the end of the season. That being said,
we still have the opportunity to improve throughout camp,
and it’s something we will have to do to meet the demands of
the schedule we face.
I look at the staff changes as a two-year process, which
was triggered with Norm’s retirement (following 2011
season). We have had a lot of re-positioning and re-staffing
over the last couple of years. I think it all came together over
the course of last spring; guys are working well together,
they are comfortable in their roles, and the players have
responded well to the new staff.”

Here is a look at the Hawkeyes, position by position:
QUARTERBACK
Iowa must replace James Vandenberg, who started every
game the past two seasons, taking every offensive snap in
2012. Vandenberg ranks among Iowa’s top eight quarterbacks
in a number of career statistical categories, including pass
completions, attempts, passing yards, passing touchdowns
and total offense.
Sophomore Jake Rudock (6-3, 200) has been with the
program the last two seasons. Rudock enjoyed an outstanding
prep career in Florida, leading his team to the Florida state title
as a senior and a two-year record of 29-1.
Junior Cody Sokol (6-2, 205) joined the program for 2012
spring practice after two seasons at Scottsdale Community
College and redshirted a year ago. He passed for over
3,800 yards as a sophomore at Scottsdale while earning allconference and all-region honors.
Redshirt freshman C.J. Beathard (6-2, 195) made progress
throughout his first spring practice. He led the state of
Tennessee is completions, passing yards and touchdowns as a
high school junior and senior.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“All three competed well throughout the spring. They have
all been doing a good job since they arrived here, and all
arrived at different times. With a group that is this young it is
realistic to think they will look different once we get midway
through August. We will let them compete and move forward
from there.
One factor, and this was true last year as well; we need
to do a better job of supporting the quarterback position.
The decision making, the things they do are important. But,
it is also helpful if we can give them some tools, having an
improved running game and more options to throw the
football, those are team things. We are optimistic that the
position will be better supported; they will have a better
opportunity to be successful.”
RUNNING BACK
Juniors Mark Weisman (6-0, 236) and Damon Bullock (60, 200) return after ranking first and second, respectively, in
rushing yards last season. Weisman moved from fullback to
running back and rushed for 815 yards (5.1 average) and eight
touchdowns in 10 games. Bullock was limited to just six games
due to injuries, but still rushed for 513 yards (3.8 average) and
three touchdowns. Both Weisman (15-90-1 TD) and Bullock
(18-167) are capable receivers.
Sophomore Jordan Canzeri (5-9, 180) returns after missing
2012 due to injury. He ranked second in rushing yards in 2011
(31-114) yards while seeing action in seven games in his first
season. He started the Insight Bowl and led the Hawkeyes in
rushing (22-58) and receptions (6-28-1 TD) against Oklahoma.
Canzeri had a solid spring while returning from his injury.

32

Iowa Hawkeye Football

2013 SEASON PREVIEW
Redshirt freshmen who will contend for playing time include
Barkley Hill (6-0, 218) and Michael Malloy (6-0, 215). Hill made
a solid impression last fall before an injury forced his redshirt
season.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“Compared to a year ago, we appear to be in a better
situation. We had a lot of concerns last August. Right now we
have two good players we have seen play in game conditions,
and they have played well. We’re certainly excited about the
potential Mark Weisman and Damon Bullock have. We hope
they can build off what they started last year; they have both
worked hard and practiced well.
Jordan Canzeri was full speed this spring and practiced
well, indicating he is ready to go. Mike Malloy did a good job
when healthy at the end of spring. Mike has the potential
to help us, which is the feeling we had for Barkley Hill last
August, until his injury. Barkley was limited this spring, but
he’s a player we are anxious to see this August as well.”
FULLBACK
Senior Brad Rogers (5-10, 230) will take a medical redshirt
in what would have been his final season. Rogers has fought
the injury bug throughout his career. Neither of the players
currently on the depth chart have played fullback in a game
for the Hawkeyes.
Those players include Adam Cox (5-11, 215) and Macon
Plewa (6-2, 234), a pair of sophomores. Berkley Grimm (6-0,
230) is another sophomore who joined the Iowa program after
spending one season at North Dakota State. Plewa saw action
at linebacker and on special teams in 2012.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“Adam Cox did a great job this spring. He was really a
pleasant surprise; he gives everything he’s got out there
and did a lot of things really well. Macon Plewa made the
transition from linebacker and made a good showing for
himself as well. Mark is as good a fullback as we’ve had; he’s
shown the ability to run the ball so we were able to move him
to running back. We certainly have more flexibility in the
depth and skills of the players at this spot.”
TIGHT END
C.J. Fiedorowicz (6-7, 265) returns for his final season after
starting all 12 games a year ago. The three-year letterman
ranked third on the team in receiving with 45 receptions for
433 yards and one touchdown. Fiedorowicz has 61 career
receptions for 600 yards and four touchdowns.
Additional lettermen at this position include junior Ray
Hamilton (6-5, 252), and sophomores Jake Duzey (6-4, 245)
and Henry Krieger Coble (6-4, 245). Krieger Coble (4-30-1 TD),
Duzey (3-16) and Hamilton (2-20) all played in at least nine
games a year ago.

2013 SEASON PREVIEW
KIRK COMMENTS:
“C.J. had a good spring. He is a big, physical player who
just needs to continue to hone his skills. Like most players,
do what you do better, pay more attention to detail. That is
what you gain with experience. C.J. showed signs this spring
of being on the right path. Ray Hamilton and Jake Duzey
have continued to do a good job. Henry Krieger Coble and
George Kittle are younger guys who continue to improve.
As a group they are all different, are all improving and
doing good things. This is a position we feel we have ability,
experience and depth.”
WIDE RECEIVER
Kevonte Martin-Manley (6-0, 205) returns for his junior
season after starting all 12 games last season. He led the team
in receptions (52-571- 2 TDs) and his two-year totals include
82 catches for 894 yards. He is one of five returning lettermen.
Senior Jordan Cotton (6-1, 192) is the only other receiver
with starting experience, and that was just one game. Cotton
improved throughout 2012 and at the end of the year led the
Big Ten and ranked 13th in the nation with a 28.2 average on
kickoff returns.
Senior Don Shumpert (6-3, 200), and sophomores Jacob
Hillyer (6-4, 205) and Tevaun Smith 6-2, 200) are the other
returning lettermen, but the trio combined for just three
receptions a year ago. Redshirt freshmen Riley McCarron (5-9,
182) and Cameron Wilson (6-1, 200) had bright spots during
the spring.
The top loss from 2012 is Keenan Davis (47-571), a two-year
starter.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“This is a position where we are inexperienced and young
overall. Kevonte is our most experienced player. We liked
the things we saw from Tevaun last fall and he continued to
improve during the spring. We are curious to see how these
other players are developing. Jacob Hillyer, Don Shumpert
and Riley McCarron did some good things when healthy
this spring. Can Jordan Cotton contribute offensively on a
consistent basis? Those are questions we have going into
August.
This is a position where younger players can play
effectively. It’s realistic to think one or two of the newcomers
may help us. We’ll try to identify which guys are most capable
as early as possible and get them integrated.”
OFFENSIVE LINE
The biggest losses in the offensive line are with the
graduation of James Ferentz and Matt Tobin. Ferentz started
all 38 games over the past three seasons at center, earning AllBig Ten recognition the past two years. Tobin split time at both
left guard and left tackle in 2012. Tobin started 22 games over
his final two seasons, earning honorable mention All-Big Ten
honors as a senior.

Seven lettermen return, and all seven have at least one game
of starting experience. Brett Van Sloten (6-7, 300) returns for
his final season after starting all 12 games at right tackle a year
ago. Junior Brandon Scherff (6-5, 315) started the first seven
games at left tackle last season. He was injured in the seventh
game of the year and missed the remainder of the year. Van
Sloten and Scherff give the Hawkeyes a pair of talented tackles.
Sophomore Austin Blythe (6-3, 300) earned freshman AllAmerica honors while starting nine games at right guard
in 2012. Blythe made the move to center and is listed as the
starter heading into the fall. Others who have started at least
one game include seniors Nolan MacMillan (6-6, 294) and
Conor Boffeli (6-5, 295), junior Andrew Donnal (6-7, 305) and
sophomore Jordan Walsh (6-4, 290). Boffeli (left) and Walsh
(right) are listed as the starting guards. MacMillan missed
spring practice due to injury.
Players who will battle for spots on the depth chart include
Eric Simmons (6-2, 295), Cole Croston (6-5, 250), Mitch Keppy
(6-5, 295), Reid Sealby (6-4, 275), Ryan Ward (6-5, 290), Drew
Clark (6-4, 288) and Tommy Gaul (6-3, 277). Simmons played
one season at Iowa Western Community College before
redshirting at Iowa last year. Croston Keppy, Sealby and Ward
are redshirt freshmen, Clark is a senior and Gaul a junior.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“The entire group has worked hard and we answered a
couple of questions in the spring. We feel good about our
tackles in Brett and Brandon; they are experienced, older
players who are strong leaders. We were pleased with Austin
Blythe’s transition to center; it was good to see him take a
big step. He played a lot of football last year and looked a lot
more comfortable and in control out there this spring. Conor
Boffeli also took a big step. He got thrown in there at the end
of last year and did a good job. He probably performed as
well as anybody over the course of the spring. Jordan Walsh
and Andrew Donnal, both have played, but both have had
injuries. They were healthy this spring and showed progress.
My guess is they will both look even better in August.
Nolan MacMillan is healthy and working full speed this
summer. Hopefully he can enter the mix in August. Eric
Simmons, Ryan Ward and Mitch Keppy are young guys that
we can hopefully keep moving forward.”
DEFENSIVE LINE
Iowa returns five lettermen in the defensive line, including
two players who started all 12 games in senior Dominic Alvis
(6-4, 265) and junior Louis Trinca-Pasat (6-3, 290). The losses
include end Joe Gaglione and Steve Bigach, who played both
end and tackle.
Trinca-Pasat missed spring practice due to off-season
surgery. He recorded 40 tackles last season, including four
tackles for loss. He also had a fumble recovery and blocked a
field goal. Alvis recorded five tackles for loss and three sacks
among his 31 tackles. He added three pass break-ups; one
caused fumble and one fumble recovery.

Additional lettermen include sophomore Darian Cooper (62, 280) and juniors Carl Davis (6-5, 315) and Mike Hardy (6-5,
275). Cooper started two games and totaled 34 tackles while
playing in all 12 games. He also recorded two pass break ups
and a recovered fumble. Each of the three made progress
during spring practice.
Others who saw action last season include sophomores
Riley McMinn (6-7, 260), Drew Ott (6-4, 265) and Melvin Spears
(6-2, 265). McMinn and Spears redshirted in 2011, while Ott
played last season as a true freshman.
Redshirt freshmen Jaleel Johnson (6-4, 310) and Faith
Ekakitie (6-3, 287) added valuable reps in the spring.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“I think we knew going in to last year we were going to be
young with just the two seniors. We are more experienced
this year, but still relatively young. Dominic is the only guy
who had played a lot before last season. Louis played well
last season but missed spring practice due to injury. Carl had
a very good spring and is continuing to grow and progress;
Darian Cooper played some last year, he got a lot of work
with Louis being out and had a good spring. I thought Jaleel
Johnson and Faith Ekakitie did a good job this spring coming
off their redshirt year. Drew, Mike and Riley all did some
good things this spring. We have the potential to have some
quality depth at this position.”
LINEBACKERS (Includes outside linebackers)
The Hawkeyes return their top three tacklers from last
season in a trio of senior linebackers. Anthony Hitchens (6-1,
233) led the team with 124 tackles in 11 games. That figure led
the Big Ten and ranked sixth nationally.
James Morris has started 29 games in his career, including all
11 in which he played last season. He collected 113 tackles and
shared the team lead with nine tackles for loss. Morris ranked
third in the Big Ten in tackles and 29th in the nation. Morris and
Hitchens each earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors.
Christian Kirksey has started 25 straight games over the past
two seasons. He had 95 tackles a year ago while leading the
Big Ten and ranking second in the nation with four fumble
recoveries. Kirksey shared the team lead with two interceptions
and returned both for touchdowns.
Three additional lettermen include juniors Quinton Alston
(6-1, 224) and Marcus Collins (6-0, 222) and sophomore Travis
Perry (6-3, 232). Alston made one start a year ago, but the trio
does not have an abundance of game experience. All three
have seen action on special teams.

34

Iowa Hawkeye Football

2013 SEASON PREVIEW
KIRK COMMENTS:
“Three guys have played a lot of football and have done
a lot of good things and that experience was evident in the
spring. All three improved; they each played better in the
spring than they have played at any time they have been
here, which was good to see. After that, we have a number of
players who haven’t played much, so that is our focus right
now. Quinton Alston and Travis Perry have done a good job
of distinguishing themselves and shown improvement. A
number of younger guys will be expected to contribute on
special teams; they need to improve and prepare as if they
are going to play.
James Morris is a player who really performs at a high
level, no matter the task. As a true freshman, in two weeks,
he went from third team and not playing, to playing middle
linebacker against a very good team on national television
in prime time. He was in there quickly due to an injury, and
really handled that well, which has been symbolic of his
time here. In everything he does, James responds in a real
positive way; academically, and as a football player. He has
developed into a great leader and is totally invested.
Christian Kirksey has also done a very good job the last two
years and is a respected leader. Anthony Hitchens played
very well all spring and looked very confident.”
DEFENSIVE BACKS
The Iowa secondary returns three starters, but this is a
position where a number of younger players will battle for
playing time. Iowa lost just one starter in cornerback Micah
Hyde, who was named the top defensive back in the Big
Ten. But, several other senior defensive backs contributed
on defense and special teams, including Greg Castillo, Tom
Donatell, Collin Sleeper and Jack Swanson.
The returning starters include cornerback B.J. Lowery (511, 193), free safety Tanner Miller (6-2, 207) and strong safety
Nico Law (6-1, 200). Lowery and Miller are seniors and Law is a
junior. Miller was fifth on the team with 69 tackles last season
while starting all 12 games. Miller has 23 career starts and 152
career tackles. Lowery had nine starts and collected 50 tackles
last season. Law moved into the starting line-up for the last
four games and had 28 stops.
Additional lettermen in the secondary include junior John
Lowdermilk (6-2, 207) and sophomores Sean Draper (6-0,
180) and Jordan Lomax (5-10, 195). Draper lettered as a true
freshman in 2012. Lomax lettered as a true freshman in 2011
before missing last season due to injury. Lowdermilk has
lettered in each of his two seasons, but has seen the majority
of his action on special teams.
Three redshirt freshmen earned their way on to the depth
chart during the spring and will provide depth to Iowa’s special
teams. That group includes Reese Fleming (6-0, 188), Anthony
Gair (6-2, 200) and Ruben Lile (6-3, 210).

2013 SEASON PREVIEW
KIRK COMMENTS:
“B.J. and Tanner are both seniors who did a really good
job this spring. Both had some ups and downs last season,
so it was good to see them gain consistency and play well in
the spring. We felt good about Jordan going into last year
before his injury and he did a good job during the spring.
Sean Draper and Reese Fleming are a couple of young guys
who are competing at the cornerback position.
John Lowdermilk and Nico Law are in good competition
at strong safety, while Ruben Lile and Anthony Gair are a
couple of redshirt freshmen adding depth. Consistency is a
key, as we experienced some ups and downs in the secondary
a year ago. We need to move the younger guys along and get
them ready to play. The group played well in the spring, but
will have to keep moving fast in August.”
SPECIAL TEAMS
Iowa returns placekicker Mike Meyer, punter Connor
Kornbrath and long snapper Casey Kreiter. Meyer (6-2, 190)
heads into his senior year after handling all placements in 2012.
He made 17-21 field goals and all 25 PAT attempts, scoring 76
points to lead the team in scoring for a second straight year. He
was honorable mention All-Big Ten and a semifinal candidate
for the Lou Groza Award for the second straight year. Meyer
has made a school-record 81 straight PAT kicks and is fifth in
career scoring with 235 points. His 13 consecutive field goals a
year ago rank among the top 10 streaks in Big Ten history, and
the consecutive PAT streak is among the 10 longest as well.
Kornbrath (6-6, 240) took over the punting duties in his first
college season and averaged 37.9 yards on 53 punts. He had
a long of 61 yards and six punts of at least 50 yards. Ten of his
punts were inside the 20 and opponents had 18 fair catches.
Just one of Kornbrath’s punts went for a touchback, although
senior John Wienke did have 14 punts (37.8) that normally
came inside the 50. Iowa opponents averaged just 4.4 yards
on 22 returns. Sophomore Marshall Koehn (6-0, 195) will back
up both Meyer and Kornbrath.
Iowa returns its long snapper in senior Casey Kreiter (6-3,
250), who has been perfect on his PAT and field goal snaps the
last two years. A new holder must be found.
Hyde returned punts for the last two seasons and must be
replaced. He averaged 7.4 yards on 16 returns in 2012. Cotton
took over as Iowa’s primary kick returner a year ago with
excellent results. Cotton averaged 28.2 yards on 19 returns,
including a 92-yard touchdown vs. Penn State. He led the Big
Ten and ranked 13th nationally.
KIRK COMMENTS:
“We are counting on Mike to have a great year; he’s very
experienced and has an excellent attitude. Connor had a
bit of a roller coaster ad a first year guy. When you invest in
a young player, you are banking on improvement at every
turn. He did a nice job in the spring and we look for his
consistency to improve. Casey has done a good job with the
snaps and as a leader for this group and we look for that to
continue.

It’s exciting to have Jordan back after he emerged as a
legitimate threat on kick returns last year. Time will tell on
replacing Micah, but I feel we have some good candidates.
With former players such as Micah and Ed Hinkel, we have
had reliable punt return guys with good judgment, which is
critical. The kicking game starts with protection, and on the
receiving end you have to field the ball.”
THE SCHEDULE
Iowa will play three of its four non-conference games in
Kinnick Stadium, beginning August 31 against Northern
Illinois. Iowa edged the Huskies (18-17) last season in Chicago.
Northern Illinois then won 12 straight games, including its
league championship for the second straight season, before
falling to Florida State in the 2013 Orange Bowl.
Iowa will also host Missouri State (Sept. 7) and Western
Michigan (Sept. 21), while traveling to Ames to meet Iowa State
(Sept. 14) in the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series contest. The
schedule features two open weeks (Oct. 12 and Nov. 16).
The Big Ten schedule features new opponents in Wisconsin
and Ohio State, while the Hawkeyes do not face Penn State
and Indiana. Iowa has not played the Badgers and Buckeyes
since 2010, when both teams escaped Kinnick Stadium with
narrow wins (Wisconsin won 31-30, while Ohio State defeated
Iowa 20-17).
Iowa begins league play at Minnesota (Sept. 28) before
hosting Michigan State. Iowa travels to Ohio State (Oct. 19)
following the first open week.
Northwestern (Oct. 26) and Wisconsin (Nov. 2) visit Iowa City
on consecutive weekends, followed by a trip to Purdue (Nov.
9) and the second open date on the schedule. A home contest
against Michigan (Nov. 23) and a Friday date at Nebraska close
out the season.
Nine of Iowa’s 12 opponents played in bowl games a year
ago, while Ohio State posted a perfect 12-0 regular season
record (OSU was not eligible for post-season play).
KIRK COMMENTS:
“Northern Illinois was in the Orange Bowl a year ago,
which is a real credit to their program. They have done a
wonderful job over an extended period of time. They were
a very good team last year, they proved that, and we expect
that to be a big challenge to start the season.
We’re coming off a season that was disappointing; every
game is really important. All we have do to is look back to
the non-conference portion of our schedule last year, which
is not the kind of start you want. Those first four games are
all going to be challenging. We need to treat each of them as
such. Conference play is conference play, it is always going
to be challenging and this year will be more of the same. Two
bye weeks will be a little different, but they appear to come
at a good time on the schedule.”

2012 FINAL DEPTH CHART/NOTES

SEASON RECAP
Iowa posted a 4-8 overall record in 2012, including a 2-6 mark in Big Ten play. The Hawkeyes were the only team in the nation to play in six games decided by three points or
less during the regular season, posting a 2-4 mark in those games. Iowa had two games
decided by a single point (1-1) and won at Michigan State in overtime. In two losses, at
home to Central Michigan and Purdue, the visitors scored the winning points on a field
goal on the final play.
The Hawkeyes played nine games against teams that were selected for bowl games,
in addition to an eight-win Penn State team. Three of Iowa’s non-conference opponents
competed in bowl games.
Iowa started the season with an 18-17 win over Northern Illinois in Chicago, scoring
the winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter against a NIU team that would win its
next 12 games while earning an invitation to the Orange Bowl. That was followed by a
close loss to Iowa State (9-6) and a win over Northern Iowa (27-16). Iowa concluded nonconference action with a last-second 32-31 loss to Central Michigan.
The Hawkeyes started fast in Big Ten play, earning a win over previously undefeated
Minnesota (31-13) and the double-overtime win at Michigan State (19-16). Iowa then lost
its final six games, including three-point losses to Indiana and Purdue, and a 13-7 decision to 14th-ranked Nebraska in the season finale.
Senior DB Micah Hyde led the Iowa defense by earning the Tatum-Woodson Award as
the top defensive back in the Big Ten. Hyde was a first team All-Big Ten selection, while
senior center James Ferentz earned second team honors. Those earning honorable mention recognition included junior kicker Mike Meyer, junior tight end C. J. Fiedorowicz,
junior linebacker Anthony Hitchens, junior linebacker James Morris, senior offensive lineman Matt Tobin and senior defensive end Joe Gaglione.
Junior linebackers Anthony Hitchens led the team in tackles (124), while junior linebacker Christian Kirksey was third in tackles (95) had two pass interceptions and four
recovered fumbles. Kirksey returned both of the interceptions for touchdowns.
The Iowa offense was led by sophomore running backs Mark Weisman and Damon
Bullock. Both battled injuries throughout the season. Weisman played in 10 games and
rushed for 815 yards and eight scores. Bullock saw action in six games, rushing for 513
yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback James Vandenberg passed for 2,249 yards and
seven touchdowns while also scoring four rushing touchdowns. The 2,249 yards passing
ranks 16th in Iowa single-season history.
BIG TEN POSTSEASON ACCOLADES
Senior defensive back Micah Hyde was named the recipient of the Big Ten’s Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year Award. Along with being named Defensive Back of the Year,
Hyde was named first team All-Big Ten by both league coaches and media. Senior center
James Ferentz was named second team All-Big Ten by vote of the conference coaches.
Hawkeye players who earned honorable mention recognition from both Big Ten
coaches and media include junior tight end C. J. Fiedorowicz, junior linebacker Anthony
Hitchens and junior kicker Mike Meyer. Senior offensive lineman Matt Tobin was honorable mention by league coaches, while Ferentz, senior defensive end Joe Gaglione and
junior linebacker James Morris earned honorable mention recognition from the media.
The Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back Award is named after former Ohio State player
Jack Tatum and former Boilermaker Rod Woodson. Hyde completed the season with 78
tackles, including 44 solo tackles. He led the team with 14 pass break-ups, forced two
fumbles, and had one interception. He recovered three fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown against Purdue.

throughout his career. He recorded 240 career tackles to tie for 34th on Iowa’s career
tackle list. He is tied for 18th in career interceptions (8-142 yards) and had four forced and
three recovered fumbles in his career. He had interception returns of 72 and 66 yards for
touchdowns as a sophomore, which rank as the 10th and 12th-longest returns in school
history. Hyde averaged 7. 5 yards on 27 punt returns the last two seasons. He earned
second team All-Big Ten honors in 2011, and was honorable mention in 2010.
Ferentz started all 38 Iowa games over the last three seasons. He earned honorable
mention honors from both coaches and media as a junior. Tobin was recognized for the
first time in his career. The native of Worthington, Iowa, started all 12 games this season
and has 21 career starts. He started the first seven games of the season at left guard before starting the final four games at left tackle.

2012 FINAL NOTES
Meyer had an outstanding season while leading the team in
scoring with 76 points. Meyer made 17-of-21 field goal attempts.
He was perfect on his 25 PAT kicks, extending his school-record
streak to 81 in a row. He was one of 20 semifinal candidates for the
Lou Groza Award.
Fiedorowicz had his most productive season by recording 45
receptions for 433 yards and a touchdown. Hitchens (124) and
Morris (113) ranked first and second on the team in tackles. Hitchens completed his first season as a starter. He led the Big Ten and
ranked sixth in the nation in tackles per game (11. 27).
Morris has started 29 games in his three seasons, and earned
honorable mention from both coaches and media in 2011. He has

games before missing the final contest against Nebraska due to
injury, collecting 51 tackles. He led the team with five quarterback
sacks and was the co-leader with Morris in tackles for loss (nine),
while causing two fumbles.
Senior quarterback James Vandenberg was Iowa’s recipient of
the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award. Vandenberg (6-3, 212) took every offensive snap for the Hawkeyes in 2012. He passed for 2,249
yards and seven touchdowns in his second year as a starter. In career statistics, Vandenberg ranks fifth in pass attempts (888), sixth
in pass completions (507) and seventh in passing yards (5,786),
touchdown passes (35) and total offense (5,853).

The district honor is the second for Bigach and Vandenberg, who
were also honored in 2011.

games over the past two seasons. He earned his degree in health
and human physiology. Vandenberg earned academic All-Big Ten
honors in each of the last three years.

WEISMAN RETURNED TO ACTION
Sophomore RB Mark Weisman returned to action in Iowa’s final
two contests after missing two full games (Indiana and Purdue)
and not playing in the second half of games against Penn State and
Northwestern. Weisman led Iowa’s rushing game with 16 carries for
63 yards at Michigan and he also had three receptions for 11 yards.
Weisman scored his first receiving touchdown of the season on a
13-yard reception in the fourth quarter against the Wolverines. He
led the team with 91 yards on 29 rushing attempts vs. Nebraska.
Despite missing time due to injuries, Weisman led Iowa’s rushing attack for the season with 159 attempts for 815 yards and
eight touchdowns. He also had 15 receptions for 90 yards and one
score.

After running backs Damon Bullock and Greg Garmon left the
UNI game (Sept. 15) with injuries, Weisman was forced into fulltime running back duties against UNI and Central Michigan. The
walk-on fullback delivered before sustaining an injury, rushing for
661 yards and eight touchdowns on 114 attempts (5. 8 avg. ).
Weisman ranked eighth in Big Ten rushing (81. 5 avg. ). His 5. 1
average per carry tied for second among league running backs.
Weisman saw limited action vs. Penn State and Northwestern,
but did not play against Indiana and Purdue. The sophomore suffered an ankle injury, in overtime, at Michigan State. He rushed
only five times for nine yards vs. Penn State and 21 yards on nine
carries at Northwestern, playing in just the first two quarters in
each contest.
Weisman rushed for 113 yards and three scores against UNI
and a career-best 217 yards and three touchdowns versus Central
Michigan. The 217 yards tie for the eighth-best rushing total in Iowa
single-game history. In the Big Ten opener against Minnesota, he
carried the ball 21 times for 177 yards (8. 4 avg. ) and a score. Weisman rushed 26 times for 116 yards and a score at Michigan State.
Weisman, who earned honorable mention CFPA honors against
Central Michigan and Minnesota, was one of only six Big Ten players to rush for 100+ yards in four games in 2012.
Weisman scored all three of Iowa’s touchdowns against UNI;
two 1-yard scores and one 2-yard run. It marked the first time a
Hawkeye rushed for three touchdowns in a game since Adam
Robinson against Eastern Illinois (Sept. 4, 2010). Weisman tallied
three of Iowa’s four touchdowns against Central Michigan, scoring from five, 12 and 34 yards out. He added an 8-yard scoring run
against Minnesota and a 5-yarder at Michigan State.
FIEDOROWICZ LED RECEIVERS
Junior TE C. J. Fiedorowicz led Iowa’s receivers the last two
games, reaching career high marks with eight receptions for 99
yards at Michigan. For his efforts he earned tight end honorable
mention recognition from the College Football Performance
Awards. He added six catches for 56 yards in the season finale
against Nebraska. Fiedorowicz previously had five receptions in
two different games, including earlier in 2012 against Penn State.
The eight receptions are the most by a Hawkeye since Keenan
Davis had 10 receptions in a win over Pittsburgh in 2011. The eight
catches are the most by an Iowa tight end since Tony Moeaki had
10 for 83 yards in a 2009 win over Northern Iowa. Fiedorowicz had
four receptions for 27 yards on Iowa’s first touchdown drive at
Michigan.
Fiedorowicz ranked third on the team with 45 receptions for 433
yards and one touchdown to lead Iowa’s tight ends. In 2011, he had
16 catches for 167 yards and three TD’s. He was named honorable
mention All-Big Ten by both league coaches and media.
STANDING STRONG
Iowa’s defense posted solid numbers in 2012. The Hawkeyes
ranked 13th in the country in turnover margin (+11); 27th in fumbles recovered (13); 33rd in scoring defense (23. 8); 46th in turnovers gained (21); and 75th in passes intercepted (10).
Iowa’s defense amassed 53 tackles for loss and forced 23 turnovers. Seven of the 23 overall takeaways were collected inside
the red zone. Also, CB Greg Castillo picked off Michigan State QB
Andrew Maxwell on the 14-yard line (Michigan State had not yet
reached the red zone) in double-overtime to preserve a Hawkeye
victory. The Hawkeye defense has collected at least one takeaway
in 76 of its last 87 games, dating back to 2006.

IOWA NOTES
• The Hawkeyes tied for 25th in the nation with seven different
defenders with an interception in 2012.
• Iowa’s defense collected 10 interceptions in each of the last
two seasons. Seven different Hawkeyes intercepted at least one
pass in 2012, with Christian Kirksey, Tom Donatell and Greg Castillo collecting two each.
• LB Anthony Hitchens recorded seven games with double-digit
tackles in 2012. Hitchens led the Big Ten and ranked sixth in the
country in tackles (11. 3). Hitchens did not see action at Michigan due to injury.
• QB James Vandenberg finished his career with a 32:15 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
• LB Christian Kirksey’s eight tackles at Michigan put him at 200
career tackles. He became the third Hawkeye in 2012 (James
Morris, Micah Hyde) and the 68th player to accomplish the feat
in school history. Morris has 293 career tackles to rank 16th and
Hyde has 240 to tie for 34th.
• Mark Weisman rushed for a combined 334 yards and six TD’s
against Northern Iowa and Central Michigan. He became the

Michigan and Northwestern). Kornbrath punted 53 times for
2,010 yards (37. 9 avg. ). He had a career long 61-yard punt in
the finale against Nebraska. Kornbrath was one of two rookie
punters in the Big Ten in 2012 (Drew Meyer, Wisconsin).
KIRKSEY RANKED AMONG NATION LEADERS
LB Christian Kirksey ranked third on the team in tackles (95),
first in fumbles recovered (4), and shared the team lead with two
interceptions. The four fumbles recovered tied as second best in
the country. Also, he returned his two interceptions for touchdowns (68 and 18 yards). He was one of only eight players in the
country to return two or more interceptions for scores this season.
Kirksey is the first Hawkeye since Micah Hyde to accomplish the
feat. Hyde returned two picks for scores in 2010 (72 vs. Missouri
and 66 vs. Michigan State).
COLLECTING INTERCEPTIONS
Iowa’s defense has ranked among national leaders in causing
turnovers in recent seasons. Since the start of the 2008 season,

best in the nation over that span. Iowa had 10 interceptions in
2011, with two of those being returned for touchdowns (89 yards
by DB Shaun Prater and 98 yards by DB Tanner Miller). Iowa’s defense also registered 10 interceptions in 2012 (two vs. Iowa State;

GAME RECAP
Iowa scored nine unanswered points in the fourth quarter to complete an 18-17,
comeback win over Northern Illinois at Soldier Field to open the 2012 season.
The Hawkeyes trailed, 17-9, heading into the final quarter. Iowa’s first drive of the
frame covered 31 yards in 10 plays and was capped by a Mike Meyer 50-yard field
goal, tying his career long. Meyer matched his career best with four field goals and
tied Iowa’s single game record with five field goal attempts. His efforts earned him
co-Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week accolades.
Senior John Weinke’s punt with 5:36 remaining pinned the Huskies at their own
one-yard line and the Hawkeye defense forced a three-and-out. Iowa took over
on the NIU 24-yard line, trailing by five, with 3:41 left. Sophomore Damon Bullock
broke a 23-yard run on third down for Iowa’s only touchdown of the game, giving
the Hawkeyes an 18-17 advantage. Iowa would hold the Huskies without a first
down on their final drive to seal the win.
Iowa’s first drive of the game was an impressive 14 play, 58-yard march over 6:52
that resulted in the first of Meyer’s four field goals. NIU responded in the second
quarter with a Keith Harris seven-yard touchdown run. Meyer’s 29-yard field goal
with 4:23 remaining in the second half made the score 7-6, but NIU’s Matthew Sims
knocked in a 28-yard field goal for a 10-6 halftime lead.
Joe Gaglione forced an NIU fumble on its first drive of the third quarter, and the
Hawkeyes capitalized eight plays later with another Meyer field goal to come within
one at 10-9. NIU QB Jordan Lynch gave the Huskies an eight-point cushion with a
73-yard touchdown scamper before Iowa’s fourth quarter comeback.
Bullock led Iowa’s offensive attack, registering 30 carries for 150 yards and a
touchdown. Senior James Vandenberg finished 21-33 for 129 yards, completing
passes to six different receivers.
Iowa’s defense held the Huskies to just 54 yards passing and 201 yards total
offense. Iowa ran 30 more plays than NIU and dominated time of possession,
racking up 38:42. James Morris and Anthony Hitchens each had eight tackles for
Iowa, while Gaglione had six tackles, including three tackles for loss, one sack and a
forced fumble.

GAME RECAP
Iowa forced four Iowa State turnovers, but only managed two field goals in a 9-6,
home opening loss to the Cyclones in the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series.
Iowa State opened the game with a 10-play, 75-yard drive that culminated with
a 5-yard TD pass. The PAT was missed, giving the Cyclones an early 6-0 lead. Iowa
marched down the field on its first drive, entering the red zone after a 34-yard
reception by Keenan Davis. The drive stalled and the Hawkeyes settled for a 23-yard
field goal from Mike Meyer.
Iowa forced the first turnover in the red zone, as Micah Hyde jarred the ball
loose on the 3-yard line and Dominic Alvis recovered the fumble. The Hawkeyes
couldn’t capitalize, giving the ball back to Iowa State after a three-and-out. The
Cyclones increased their lead on the following drive with a 22-yard field goal for a
9-3 advantage.
The teams traded interceptions to end the first half. Iowa State was driving late
in the second quarter before Tom Donatell recorded his first career pick to give Iowa
the ball at its own 34-yard line with 1:41 remaining. James Vandenberg threw his
first pick of the season four plays later, as the score stayed 9-3 at half.
The first five drives of the second half resulted in punts, before Iowa State drove
into Iowa territory midway through the third quarter. Cyclone running back James
White fumbled at the Iowa 14-yard line and the Hawkeyes rallied with a 12-play
drive inside the Iowa State 5-yard line. Iowa once again had to settle for a field goal
inside the red zone, trimming the deficit to 9-6.
Iowa State was close to putting the game away in the fourth, with first and goal
at the Iowa 3-yard line. The Hawkeye defense once again produced a takeaway in
the red zone, as James Morris intercepted a third-down pass at the goal line and
returned it to midfield. However, Iowa’s drive stalled and the Hawkeyes were forced
to punt.
After another solid stop by the Iowa defense, the Hawkeyes took over at their
own 10-yard line with 1:56 left in the game. Vandenberg led Iowa down to the
Cyclone 32-yard line before throwing his second interception.
Vandenberg finished 20-42 for 236 yards and two interceptions. Bullock had 22
carries for 53 yards, while Davis had four catches for 75 yards.
Anthony Hitchens had a career-high 19 tackles, while Morris added 12. Each
player had a tackle for loss, while Morris added a forced fumble and an interception.

GAME RECAP
Iowa outscored Minnesota 24-0 in the first half and never looked back en route
to a 31-13 Big Ten-opening victory at Kinnick Stadium on Iowa’s Homecoming to
regain possession of the Floyd of Rosedale traveling trophy. The win was Iowa’s
fourth straight on Homecoming.
PK Mike Meyer scored the only points of the first quarter with a 44-yard field
goal, his ninth straight make. RB Mark Weisman scored on an 8-yard run, his seventh
score in three games, on the first play of the second period to give the Hawkeyes a
10-0 lead. Iowa scored touchdowns on its next two possessions as well. WR Jordan
Cotton caught a 47-yard score from QB James Vandenberg on a flea-flicker, followed
by a Vandenberg 1-yard QB sneak to give the Hawkeyes a 24-0 halftime cushion.
The Gophers scored their first points on a 9-yard TD pass from QB Max Shortell to
WR Isaac Fruechte midway through the third period. Three Minnesota possessions
later, LB Christian Kirksey intercepted a Shortell pass attempt and ran the theft back
68 yards for a touchdown. The interception return for a touchdown was the third
longest in school history. Iowa has had an interception return for a touchdown in
each of the last five years.
Shortell threw his second touchdown pass, this time from 1-yard out, in the final
minute but failed the two-point conversion to make the final score 31-13.
Vandenberg completed 18-31 passes for 192 yards, increasing his career total to
4,527 yards and surpassing Kyle McCann for seventh on Iowa’s career passing chart.
Weisman finished with 177 yards on 21 carries (8. 4 avg. ), while WR Keenan Davis
(six catches) and TE C. J. Fiedorowicz (two catches) each had 50 yards receiving.
The Hawkeye defense was stellar, collecting four turnovers (three interceptions
and one fumble), registering three tackles for loss, including two sacks, and
breaking up four passes.
Iowa was led defensively by LB Anthony Hitchens, LB James Morris and
Kirksey. The trio combined for 27 tackles, two sacks, one fumble recovery and one
interception, which was returned 68 yards for a score by Kirksey.

GAME RECAP
Iowa improved to 2-0 in Big Ten play with a thrilling 19-16, double-overtime
win to spoil Michigan State’s Homecoming. The victory gave Kirk Ferentz 100 wins
at Iowa.
Iowa scored 10 fourth-quarter points to force overtime and sealed the win in the
extra frame thanks to place kicker Mike Meyer and a strong defensive effort.
Michigan State led, 10-3, heading into the final quarter. Meyer converted his
second field goal of the game with 14:08 left in the fourth period to trim the deficit
to 10-6. After a Spartan field goal made the score 13-6, the Hawkeyes engineered
a nine play, 68-yard drive, capped by a 5-yard touchdown run by Mark Weisman, to
tie the game and force overtime.
Iowa won the toss and started on defense, holding the Spartans to a field goal on
its first possession. Meyer responded on Iowa’s offensive chance, nailing a 27-yard
field goal to send the game to double overtime.
The Hawkeyes started on offense and Meyer drilled his fourth field goal, this time
from 42 yards, to give Iowa a 19-16 lead. Meyer’s four made field goals tied a career
best for the Dubuque, Iowa, native.
Spartan quarterback Andrew Maxwell’s pass on the second play of their doubleovertime drive was tipped at the line by Louis Trinca-Pasat. The ball was then tipped
by a Spartan wide receiver and cornerback Greg Castillo came down with the
interception to secure the Hawkeye road win.
Michigan State took advantage of a Hawkeye turnover on the first drive of the
game to take an early lead. Le’Veon Bell scampered for a 14-yard touchdown run
after the Spartan defense recorded an interception in the first stanza.
Weisman went over 100 yards for the fourth consecutive game, finishing with
116 yards and a touchdown. QB James Vandenberg completed 19-of-36 passes for
134 yards.
Three Hawkeyes tallied double-digit tackles; Anthony Hitchens (15), Joe
Gaglione (11) and James Morris (10). The Hawkeye defense collected two sacks and
six tackles for loss.

GAME RECAP
Penn State scored 24 first-half points en route to a 38-14 win over Iowa inside
Kinnick Stadium. The win was Penn State’s first in Iowa City since 1999.
The Nittany Lions controlled all facets of the game, limiting the Hawkeyes to
just 20 yards rushing and 209 yards of total offense. Penn State posted 504 yards of
total offense (215 rushing and 289 passing) to hand Iowa its first Big Ten loss of the
season.
Two Matt McGloin touchdown passes in the first quarter gave Penn State an
early 14-0 advantage. Sam Ficken added a field goal in the second period and Bill
Belton collected a rushing touchdown in the second, third and fourth quarters to
put the game out of reach.
Iowa junior Jordan Cotton put the Hawkeyes on the board with a 92-yard kickoff
return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It marked Iowa’s first kickoff return for
a touchdown since Derrell Johnson-Koulianos had an 88-yard return at Minnesota
in 2010. The return tied for the 10th-longest in school history.
Senior James Vandenberg tossed his third TD pass of the year late in the fourth
period, finding fellow senior Keenan Davis for an 18-yard scoring play. Davis also
caught his 100th career pass, collecting four receptions for 83 yards.
Vandenberg finished 17-of-36 for 189 yards. He threw one touchdown and two
interceptions. Freshman Greg Garmon had career bests in carries (8) and yards
(27) to lead the Hawkeye ground game. Iowa’s leading rusher, sophomore Mark
Weisman, injured an ankle the previous week against Michigan State. He was
limited to just nine yards on five carries.
Junior Christian Kirksey and senior James Morris led Iowa’s defense with 12
tackles each. Kirksey added a 45-yard fumble return.

GAME RECAP
Northwestern gained 433 total yards, including 349 rushing yards, to defeat
Iowa, 28-17 in Evanston, Ill. The Hawkeyes ran 19 more plays and controlled time of
possession, but were unable to come away with the victory.
The Wildcats scored on their first possession, converting three third downs,
capped by a 5-yard scoring run by Kain Colter. The Hawkeyes managed a field goal
on their first drive for a 7-3 score after the first quarter.
Northwestern took a 14-3 lead into halftime after Colter’s second rushing score
of the day. He added another to begin the third quarter after the Wildcats blocked
an Iowa punt and took over at the Hawkeye four-yard line.
A 47-yard pass from Colter to Christian Jones made the score 28-3 in the third
quarter. QB James Vandenberg capped a 12-play, 59-yard scoring drive with a
1-yard run. Vandenberg registered his second rushing touchdown with 6:37 left
in the game after a nine-play, 84-yard drive to trim the deficit to 28-17. Iowa was
unable to get any closer after its final score with 6:37 remaining.
RB Damon Bullock returned to action after missing the previous four games
with an injury. Bullock carried the ball 22 times for 107 yards, eclipsing the 100-yard
plateau for the second time this season.
Vandenberg finished 24-of-38 with 214 yards and hit eight different receivers,
adding to his two rushing touchdowns. It marked the first time in Vandenberg’s
career he scored multiple rushing touchdowns in a game. WR Kevonte MartinManley led the way with seven catches for 46 yards. Freshmen Tevaun Smith and
Jacob Hillyer recorded their first career catches in the contest.
CB B. J. Lowery collected his first career interception, picking off a Colter pass in

GAME RECAP
Indiana rallied from an early 14-0 deficit to upend Iowa, 24-21, at Memorial
Stadium in Bloomington.
The Hawkeyes posted two quick scores in the first quarter to take the early
advantage. Iowa engineered a six-play, 71-yard drive that was capped by a 24-yard
strike from QB James Vandenberg to WR Kevonte Martin-Manley for the opening
score of the game. After the ensuing kickoff, LB Christian Kirksey recorded an
interception on the first play from scrimmage and returned it 18 yards to the end
zone, giving Iowa an early 14-0 lead.
Indiana responded late in the first quarter with a 45-yard field goal to make
the score 14-3. The Hoosiers continued their comeback, using a 15-yard pass from
QB Cameron Coffman to WR Cody Latimer with 47 seconds remaining in the half,
trimming the Hawkeye lead to 14-10 at intermission.
Latimer recorded the second of his three scoring catches with 7:28 remaining
the third period, giving Indiana its first lead of the game (21-17). Iowa responded
with a 10-play, 88-yard scoring march over 5:34 in the third and fourth quarter to
regain the lead. RB Damon Bullock tallied his second rushing touchdown of the
season, scoring from four yards to give the Hawkeyes a four-point advantage (2421). The 88-yard drive was Iowa’s longest scoring drive of the season.
Indiana scored the eventual game-winning touchdown on the next drive, going
61 yards in four plays for a 24-21 lead, with Latimer catching his third score of the
game. The Hoosiers used a 39-yard kick return for solid starting position and later
scored on a 30-yard pass play.
Vandenberg finished with a season-high 249 passing yards on a 21-of-34
performance. Martin-Manley was his favorite target, registering season bests in
catches (seven) and yards (131). Bullock led Iowa’s ground game with 83 yards on
25 carries.
The Hawkeye defense was once again paced by the linebacker duo of Anthony
Hitchens and Kirksey. Hitchens led all players with 14 tackles, including 1. 5 tackles
for loss. Kirksey had eight tackles, a pick-six and recovered a fumble in the red zone.

GAME RECAP
Purdue placekicker Paul Griggs hit a 46-yard field goal as time expired to help the
Boilermakers knock off Iowa, 27-24 inside Kinnick Stadium on Saturday. The victory
was Purdue’s first win in Iowa City since 1992.
The Hawkeyes tied the score 24-24 with 3:32 remaining in the game when
PK Mike Meyer drilled a 24-yard field goal. After a stop by the Iowa defense, the
Hawkeyes took over at their own 14-yard line with 1:08 left. Iowa put together
an eight play, 52-yard drive down to the Purdue 35-yard line, but was unable to
convert on 4th-and-3, giving the Boilermakers the ball with 16 seconds left.
Purdue QB Robert Marve scrambled for 17 yards on the first play and he hit
Antavian Edison for 20 yards on the next play, setting up the game winning 46-yard
field goal.
The Boilermakers struck first when Akeem Shavers scored on a 3-yard touchdown
run in the first quarter. Iowa responded in the second quarter with a 1-yard scamper
by Damon Bullock, but a 9-yard TD pass from Marve to Gabe Holmes gave Purdue a
14-7 lead at the half.
Purdue’s Sam McCartney increased the lead to 17-7 with a 36-yard field goal to
open the second half. Iowa cut the lead to 17-14 when QB James Vandenberg hit TE
C. J. Fiedorowicz for a 5-yard touchdown.
Iowa and Purdue traded scores to end the third quarter. Marve collected his third
TD pass of the day, hitting Gary Bush on a 10-yard score with 1:38 left in the third
quarter for a 24-14 lead. After an Iowa punt and a Boilermaker penalty, Purdue took
over on its own 10-yard line with 50 seconds left in the quarter. Marve fumbled the
snap on the second play of the drive and CB Micah Hyde scooped up the loose ball,
carrying it into the end zone for a 9-yard score. The score was Hyde’s third career
defensive touchdown.
Vandenberg was 19-of-36 for 190 yards and one touchdown and also added
eight rushes for 31 yards. Bullock had 23 carries for 43 yards. Seven different
Hawkeyes had at least one catch, led by WR Kevonte Martin-Manley’s 63 yards.

GAME RECAP
Michigan scored 28 unanswered points to pull away in defeating Iowa, 42-17. It
was Michigan’s first win over Iowa in four meetings, dropping the Hawkeyes to 4-7

Michigan took an early 7-0 lead with 8:27 left in the first quarter, but the
Hawkeyes tied the game at the end of the first period. Senior QB James Vandenberg
engineered a 14 play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 16-yard scoring strike to tight
end Henry Krieger Coble. The touchdown was the first of Krieger Coble’s career.
Gardner tallied his first passing touchdown of the game with 13:05 left in the

responded with a 12-play, 62-yard drive, capped by a one-yard quarterback sneak
by James Vandenberg for a 7-3 Iowa lead.
The Hawkeyes forced two Nebraska fumbles in the second quarter, but were
unable to convert the turnovers into points. Micah Hyde recovered a muffed punt,
but Nebraska stopped Iowa on a fourth-and-one at the Cornhusker 39-yard line.
One drive later, Louis Trinca-Pasat recovered a Taylor Martinez fumble, but Iowa
was forced to punt seven plays later.
Nebraska trimmed Iowa’s lead to 7-6 with a field goal on its opening drive of the
second half. The Cornhuskers took the lead for good late in the third quarter when
Rex Burkhead rushed for a three-yard score.
Connor Kornbrath’s 61-yard punt pinned Nebraska at its own one-yard line in
the fourth quarter, but Nebraska managed to burn 3:16 off the clock while gaining
32 yards. Iowa’s next drive went three-and-out, and the final drive of the game
ended with an interception.
Mark Weisman led Iowa in rushing with 91 yards on 29 carries. Vandenberg
finished 11-of-24 for 92 yards and two interceptions. Tight end C. J. Fiedorowicz
had six catches for 56 yards.

1996 - Iowa posted a 9-3 record, including a 27-0 win over Texas Tech
in the Builder’s Square Alamo Bowl. The Hawkeyes posted a 6-2 Big
Ten record, earning a tie for third place with Penn State. Iowa ended

USA Today coaches poll. PR Tim Dwight and DT Jared DeVries earned
All-America honors and RB Sedrick Shaw rushed for over 1,000 yards
for the third consecutive season.
1997 - If ever the Hawkeyes had a season that could have been,
1997 would be the year. Iowa posted a 7-5 overall record (4-4 in the
Big Ten) and participated in the Norwest Sun Bowl, earning its third
straight bowl invitation. But narrow road losses at national champion
Michigan (28-24), Wisconsin (13-10) and Northwestern (15-14) put a
damper on what could have been a great season. RB Tavian Banks,
WR Tim Dwight and DT Jared DeVries earned All-America honors and
Dwight led the nation in punt returns.
1998 - On November 25, 1998, Hayden Fry announced his retirement
as head coach after a successful 20-year career with the Hawkeyes.
Fry had a record of 143-89-6 at Iowa and a 232-178-10 mark over his
37 seasons as a college head football coach.
Iowa struggled to a 3-8 record on the field, with five of the eight
losses coming to teams ranked in the final top 25. Three Hawkeye
losses came at the hands of teams ranked in the top six in the country.
Iowa was led on offense by three freshmen, as QB Kyle McCann led
the team in passing, RB Ladell Betts led the team in rushing and WR
Kahlil Hill led the team in receiving. Senior DT Jared DeVries earned
consensus All-America honors.
1999 - Kirk Ferentz began a new coaching era as Iowa finished the
season with a 1-10 record while facing what was regarded as the
fourth strongest schedule in the nation. Three of Iowa’s losses went
down to the final play of the game, with the Hawkeyes allowing a
score at Northwestern and failing to score from inside the 10-yardline
in home losses to Indiana and Minnesota.
2000 - Iowa opened the season in the Eddie Robinson Classic against
Kansas State on August 26, marking the earliest date ever for an Iowa
football game. The Hawkeyes, facing the sixth-strongest schedule in
the nation, posted a 3-9 overall record. The Hawkeyes won their first
overtime game ever, 26-23 at Penn State, in double overtime. A late
season 27-17 win over Northwestern forced the Wildcats to share the
Big Ten title. Iowa finished strong, winning two of final three games to
set the table for the success of 2001 and 2002.
2001 - Iowa opened the season with three straight wins and ended
the season winning three of its final four games, including a 19-16
victory over Texas Tech in the Alamo Bowl. The Hawkeyes posted an
overall 7-5 record and tied for fourth in the Big Ten with a 4-4 mark.
All five of Iowa’s setbacks came by less than 10 points. Iowa led the
Big Ten in scoring (32. 6) as Coach Kirk Ferentz led Iowa to a bowl win
in just his third season.
2002 - Iowa posted a perfect 8-0 record in Big Ten play to earn a
share of the conference title with Ohio State. After a 3-1 start in
non-conference play, the Hawkeyes began league play with a 42-35
overtime win at Penn State and went on to earn the league title in
Coach Kirk Ferentz’ fourth year. Iowa posted a final mark of 11-2 after
a loss to Southern California in the 2003 Orange Bowl in Miami, FL.
Iowa earned its first-ever Bowl Championship Series invitation.
Ferentz earned Big Ten and national Coach of the Year honors,
while 11 Hawkeyes were named first team all-Big Ten. QB Brad Banks
placed second in the voting for the Heisman Trophy and was the Big
Ten Conference MVP. Banks was also the Associated Press Player of
the Year and earned the Davey O’Brien Award as the top quarterback
in the nation. OL Eric Steinbach was the Big Ten Lineman of the year,

while TE Dallas Clark earned the John Mackey Award and PK Nate
Kaeding earned the Lou Groza award.
Iowa averaged over 37 points a game in leading the Big Ten in
scoring for the second straight season, while the Hawkeye defense
ranked fifth in the nation against the run.
2003 - For the first time in school history, Iowa won 10 or more games
in consecutive seasons after posting a 10-3 mark in 2003, putting an
exclamation mark on the season with a 37-17 win over Florida in the
2004 Outback Bowl.
Iowa’s 21 wins over the past two seasons are the most ever for
Iowa football in a two-year period. The Hawkeyes finished the season
ranked eighth in the final polls, the first back-to-back top 10 finishes
for Iowa football since the 1950’s. Coupled with the 2003 Orange
Bowl, Iowa also has played in January bowl games in consecutive
seasons for the first time in the history of the program.
The Hawkeyes opened the season with four straight wins in nonconference play. After a loss at Michigan State, Iowa returned home
for a 30-27 win over Michigan, handing the Wolverines their only loss
in Big Ten play. After a loss at Purdue in early November, Iowa closed
the regular season with wins over Minnesota and Wisconsin. The bowl
win over Florida gave the Hawkeyes three straight wins over ranked
opponents.
Offensive tackle Robert Gallery was named a consensus AllAmerican and became Iowa’s third Outland Trophy winner as the
nation’s top interior lineman. PK Nate Kaeding was also a first team
All-American for the second straight season, becoming Iowa’s all-time
scoring leader while setting 14 school records during his career.
2004 - Winning its last eight games of the season, Iowa posted a 10-2
record, sharing the Big Ten Conference title for the second time in
three seasons. The Hawkeyes defeated Wisconsin in Kinnick Stadium
on the final day of the regular season to earn the title share with
Michigan.
Playing in its third straight January bowl game, Iowa scored a
thrilling 30-25 win over defending national champion LSU in the 2005
Capital One Bowl. The Hawkeyes scored the winning touchdown on a
56-yard pass from QB Drew Tate to senior WR Warren Holloway on the
final play of the game.
Iowa started the season with a 2-2 mark before making its
championship run. The win over Wisconsin increased Iowa’s winning
streak to 18 straight home games and 13 straight conference games,
both school records.
Tate, DE Matt Roth, LB Chad Greenway and LB Abdul Hodge were
named first team All-Big Ten, while Coach Kirk Ferentz was named
Big Ten Conference Coach of the Year for the second time in three
seasons.
2005 - Iowa finished the 2005 season with a 7-5 record and in a third
place tie in the Big Ten standings. A pair of heartbreaking, last minute
losses to Michigan and Northwestern is all that separated Iowa from
at least a piece of its third league title in four years. The Hawkeyes’
success earned them their second Outback Bowl appearance in three
years.
Despite a year of triumphs and disappointments, Iowa finished the
year as one of only four teams in the nation to have played in January
bowl games the last four years.
LB Chad Greenway, DB Jovon Johnson and DE Kenny Iwebema
were named All-Big Ten first team, while LB Abdul Hodge, RB Albert
Young and PK Kyle Schlicher earned second team accolades.

2006 - Iowa started the season winning five of its first six games
and becoming a fixture in the nation’s top 20. The second half of
the season was just the opposite as injuries took their toll and the
Hawkeyes dropped five of their final six regular season contests.
But, Iowa did well enough to get invited to its sixth straight bowl
game and came excruciatingly close to an upset of the defending
national champion Texas Longhorns in the Alamo Bowl, before
succumbing (26-24). The game was played before the biggest sports
crowd ever to witness a sporting event in the Alamodome. The game
was also the most watched ESPN bowl game in the network’s history.
OL Mike Jones was named to the coaches first All-Big Ten team.
OL Marshal Yanda, LB Mike Klinkenborg, TE Scott Chandler and DB
Marcus Paschal were second team choices.
Iowa was the only team in the country to have three players (OL
Mike Elgin, DB Adam Shada and LB Mike Klinkenborg) represented on
the first academic All-America team.
2007 - Iowa finished the season with a 6-6 overall record. Iowa
finished tied for fifth in the Big Ten with a 4-4 mark. After starting the
season with a 2-4 record, Iowa won four of its last six and just missed
being selected for a bowl game. The Hawkeyes were bowl eligible
for the seventh straight season and finished in the Big Ten’s upper
division for the sixth time in seven years. Iowa broke the school record
for fewest turnovers in a season (13).
DT Mitch King earned first team All-Big Ten accolades by the
coaches and second team honors by the media. CB Charles Godfrey
was recognized on the second team by the coaches and was an
honorable mention honoree by the media.
Iowa’s offense isn’t making any excuses, but. . . at least 11 players
who appeared on the spring, or early fall, two-deep are either off
the roster or were injured for a significant amount of time. The Iowa
offense could have looked much different with some of the following
names on the two-deep: WR Andy Brodell, OL Dace Richardson, OL
Rob Bruggeman, OL Bryan Bulaga, OL Alex Kanellis, TE Tony Moeaki,
WR Colin Sandeman, WR Dominique Douglas, WR Anthony Bowman,
WR Trey Stross and RB Shonn Greene.
2008 - Led by a great group of 15 seniors, Iowa won five of its last six
games and earned a spot in the prestigious January 1st Outback Bowl
against South Carolina, winning 31-10.
The 2008 Hawkeyes finished the season with a 9-4 record and were
ranked 20th in both final major polls. The Outback Bowl champions
became the fourth Iowa team in the last seven years to win at least
nine games. The Hawkeyes also played in a January bowl game for
the fifth time in seven years.
Along the way, running back Shonn Greene broke seven school
records and three school individual bowl records en route to becoming
a consensus All-American and won the Doak Walker Award as the
nation’s top running back. Greene also was named the Big Ten’s Most
Valuable Player. On the defensive side, Mitch King also earned AllAmerica honors and was named Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year.
The Hawkeyes tied for fourth (5-3 league record) and wound up as
the league’s only winner in the bowl season. Iowa’s four losses came
by a combined 12 points.
Iowa ranked in the top 20, nationally, in six statistical categories
(5th - Pass efficiency defense, scoring defense and fewest penalty
yards; 9th - rushing defense; 12th - total defense; 19th - red zone
defense).
2009 - The 2009 Hawkeyes will be remembered as one of the most
entertaining, talented and successful teams in Hawkeye history. The
11 wins equal (2002) the program record for victories in a season. The
regular season win total of 10 was achieved for only the fourth time.
For the first time ever, the Hawkeyes won their first nine games of a
season. And, for the sixth time in eight years, Iowa played in a January

106 Iowa Hawkeye Football

IOWA FOOTBALL HISTORY
bowl game. And, more importantly, Iowa won a BCS caliber bowl
game for the first time since 1959.
Iowa posted an 11-2 overall record and a 6-2 Big Ten mark, good
enough for a second place tie with Penn State. The Hawkeyes won
at least nine games for the fifth time in the last eight years won 10
games or more for the seventh time in school history.
In addition to Iowa’s 24-14 win over ninth-ranked Georgia Tech
in the FedEx Orange Bowl, the Hawkeyes posted road wins at Penn
State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Iowa State. An overtime loss at
eventual league champion Ohio State was the only road blemish. A
seven point home loss to Northwestern was Iowa’s only other loss.
The Hawkeyes posted four wins by three points or less for the first
time in school history.
Another road block during the 2009 season was an unusually
high number of injuries to several starters. The loss of two offensive
linemen, tight end, quarterback, running backs, receivers, defensive
backs and a linebacker were all part of the scenario Iowa’s coaching
staff had to deal with. All of the above mentioned positions lost
starters for at least part of the season.
The Hawkeyes ranked seventh in both major polls at the conclusion
of the season, the highest final ranking for the program since 1960.
Individually, several Hawkeyes reaped the rewards of the successful
season. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn was named MVP of the FedEx
Orange Bowl. Coach Kirk Ferentz was named Big Ten Coach of the Year
for the third time. Offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga was picked as the
league’s Offensive Lineman of the Year. He joined Dace Richardson
(OL), Tony Moeaki (TE), Clayborn (DE), Pat Angerer (LB), Tyler Sash (DB)
and Amari Spievey (DB) on the first All-Big Ten team. Six Hawkeyes
were selected in the 2010 NFL Draft.
2010 - Iowa concluded the 2010 season with a 27-24 win over 12thranked Missouri in the Insight Bowl. The Hawkeyes earned their
second straight bowl victory over a top-15 opponent and won three
consecutive bowl games for the first time in school history. Iowa
improved its bowl record to 14-10-1.
The Insight Bowl win over the Tigers marked Iowa’s fourth 2010
victory over a ranked opponent, the most by an Iowa team since
2003. Iowa played seven ranked opponents in 2010, the most for the

nation. In each of Iowa’s five losses, the Hawkeyes were either tied
or leading in the fourth quarter. The five losses came by a total of
18 points and the four league losses were by a collective 11 points.
Iowa’s most impressive wins were a 37-6 win over Michigan State,
which shared the Big Ten title while posting an 11-2 overall record,
and the Insight Bowl win over Missouri (10-3), which tied for the
North Division title in the Big 12 Conference.
Freshman RB Marcus Coker was named offensive Player of the
Game in the Insight Bowl, rushing 33 times for 219 yards and two
touchdowns. Sophomore DB Micah Hyde was named defensive Player
of the Game, as his 72-yard interception return for a touchdown in the
fourth quarter provided Iowa’s winning margin.
Four Hawkeyes earned first team All-Big Ten honors, including
DE Adrian Clayborn, DB Tyler Sash, DB Shaun Prater and WR Derrell
Johnson-Koulianos. Clayborn earned consensus All-America honors
and was a finalist for both the Rotary Lombardi Award and the Ted

Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Punter Ryan Donahue was one of
three finalists for the Ray Guy Award.

GAME RECAP
Switching from the mighty defensive role they played all season (which
included four shutouts), Iowa put on a great offensive show to defeat Oregon
State 35‑19 in the 43rd Rose Bowl. It was the school’s first bowl appearance.
Iowa assumed an early lead on game MVP Kenny Ploen’s 49‑yard run. Ploen
also completed 9‑of‑10 passes. Collins Hagler scored two TDs and totaled a
game‑best 85 rushing yards. Iowa played Oregon State during the regular
season and had also won that encounter, 14‑13. The Rose Bowl win was the
Big Ten’s 10th win in 11 games against its west coast opponents. Over 15,000
Hawkeye fans attended the game.

GAME RECAP
Bob Jeter ran for 194 yards on nine carries, earned Player‑of‑the‑Game
honors and led Iowa to a 38‑12 win over California in the 45th Rose Bowl. Over
18,000 Iowa fans made the trip to Pasadena. Head Coach Forest Evashevski
had to get out of his sickbed to lead Iowa to its second Rose Bowl win in
three years. Willie Fleming tallied twice for the winners. Fleming had 85 yards
(nine attempts) on the ground. The Hawkeyes set Rose Bowl records for total
offense (516) and rushing offense (429). Jeter’s 21. 6 yards per carry average
and his 81‑yard TD run were Rose Bowl records.

GAME RECAP
Washington’s Jacque Robinson rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns as
the Huskies blanked Iowa 28‑0 in the 68th Rose Bowl game. One of the key plays
was late in the first half when Iowa tried to convert a fourth‑and‑seven situation at
Washington’s 40‑yard line. Pete Gales’ pass was incomplete, and the Huskies moved
the ball downfield and scored with 0:19 left for a 13‑0 halftime lead. Iowa’s offense
turned the ball over five times while Washington had just one turnover. The game
marked the third bowl game in school history and the first in 23 years.

GAME RECAP
A brilliant passing performance by Chuck Long led the Hawkeyes to a 28‑22
Peach Bowl win over Tennessee. Long completed 14 of 17 first half passes for 231
yards and three touchdowns. Iowa led 21‑7 at the intermission. Long had 304 yards
passing and 306 yards total offense, both Peach Bowl records. Dave Moritz tied the
bowl game record with eight receptions, all in the first half. Nineteen Peach Bowl
records were tied or broken. Iowa WR Ronnie Harmon had a pair of TD receptions.
The Peach Bowl was the first non‑Rose Bowl postseason game in school history.

Bowl as Florida defeated Iowa 14‑6. The wind chill at game time was 13 degrees
below zero. The Hawkeyes and Gators combined for six interceptions, 19 penalties
and only seven of 31 third down conversions in the ragged contest. The play of the
game took place with 1:08 left in the first half. Tom Nichol, attempting to punt out
of his own end zone, misplayed a high snap and Florida’s Doug Drew covered it for
a touchdown. Nichol scored the Hawkeyes’ only points on a pair of short field goals.
Owen Gill led the Hawkeye offense with 83 yards rushing.

GAME RECAP
Chuck Long’s passing performance surpassed all previous bowl games as the
Hawkeyes blasted Texas 55‑17 in the inaugural Freedom Bowl. Long completed 29 of
39 passes for 461 yards and six TDs despite a steady rain throughout the game. Iowa
scored 31 unanswered points in the third quarter. Long’s third quarter totals were
12‑14 passes for 241 yards and four touchdowns. Both Robert Smith (4 catches, 115
yards) and Bill Happel (8, 104) had over 100 yards receiving.

GAME RECAP
UCLA freshman tailback Eric Ball paved the way for the Bruins’ 45‑28 upset
victory over Big Ten champion Iowa. Ball, who didn’t start, rambled for 227 yards
on 22 carries. Ball scored on runs of 30, 40, six and 32 yards. Iowa QB Chuck Long
completed 29 of 37 attempts for 319 yards and one score. The Hawkeyes turned the
ball over five times, including four times in the first half, as UCLA built a 24-10 lead.
RB Ronnie Harmon caught a career‑high 11 passes for 102 yards and Rob Houghtlin
added field goals of 24 and 52 yards. The teams combined for 889 yards of total
offense and 54 first downs.

GAME RECAP
Rob Houghtlin’s 41‑yard field goal as time expired culminated an 18‑point blitz
in the final 8:39 and helped Iowa down San Diego State 39‑38 in the ninth annual
Holiday Bowl. The Hawkeyes stormed back on a pair of Mark Vlasic TD throws in
the final period to take a 36‑35 lead. SDSU’s Kevin Rahill booted a 21‑yard FG with
0:47 left to give the Aztecs a 38‑36 advantage. Kevin Harmon returned the ensuing
kickoff to the SDSU 37‑yard line, and Houghtlin kicked the game winner four plays
later. Iowa was able to win only after converting two-point conversions following
two of their final three touchdowns.

GAME RECAP
Iowa’s defense and special teams scored two touchdowns and FB David Hudson
tallied on a short run in the fourth period to rally the Hawkeyes to a 20‑19 triumph
over Wyoming in the 10th Holiday Bowl. Merton Hanks deflected a second‑period
punt, the first of his two blocked kicks, and Jay Hess covered it in the end zone for a
score. Anthony Wright cut the lead to 19‑13 with a 33‑yard interception return. Greg
Worker’s 52‑yard FG attempt was blocked by Hanks with 46 seconds left to preserve
the victory. Wright, who added six tackles, was Iowa’s game MVP. Wyoming had a
12‑0 lead before Hess got the Hawkeyes on the scoreboard, but Iowa still trailed
19-7 at halftime before pitching a shutout in the second half.

GAME RECAP
Iowa couldn’t overcome seven turnovers, including three interceptions by North
Carolina State’s Michael Brooks, in a 28‑23 loss in the Peach Bowl. NCSU jumped out
to a 28‑3 lead before the Hawkeyes staged a furious comeback with 20 unanswered
points. Chuck Hartlieb passed for 428 yards ‑‑ 122 to Marv Cook and 101 and two
TDs to Deven Harberts ‑‑ in the catch‑up effort. The Hawkeyes trailed 28‑3 just
15 minutes into the game before Hartlieb worked his magic. The Wolfpack also
committed seven turnovers, losing five fumbles. Freshman Tyrell Jackson scored
two TDs for North Carolina State.

GAME RECAP
Iowa charged back from a 33‑7 halftime deficit to pull within 13 (39‑26) with 5:07
left, but Washington held on to defeat the Hawkeyes 46‑34 in the highest‑scoring
game in Rose Bowl history. Nick Bell gained 64 yards to go over 1,000 for the
season (1,009) and Tony Stewart became Iowa’s all‑time leading rusher (2,562).
The receiving corps was a bright spot for Iowa, combining for 315 yards on 17
catches. Mike Saunders led Iowa’s receivers with five catches for 99 yards and Bell
totaled 85 yards on three receptions. Bell and QB Matt Rodgers both rushed for two
touchdowns.

GAME RECAP
Iowa’s attempt to become the winningest team in Hawkeye history came up
just short at the hands of Ty Detmer and Brigham Young. The 1990 Heisman
Trophy winner passed for 350 yards in rallying the Cougars back from a 13‑0
halftime deficit. Iowa built its lead on two touchdown runs by Mike Saunders.
Saunders joined Iowa’s exclusive 1,000‑yard in a season club. He had 103 yards on
19 carries in the Holiday Bowl to give him 1,022 for the season and 1,476 career
rushing yards. Iowa QB Matt Rodgers completed 19 of 28 passes for 221 yards.
Jon Filloon caught a career‑high seven passes for 107 yards in his final game as a
Hawkeye. All‑American defensive end Leroy Smith was injured in the first half and
never returned to the Iowa lineup. BYU had a chance to win the game with under
30 seconds to play. The Cougars had a first down on the Iowa 18‑yard line with the
score tied. However, Detmer’s final pass was intercepted by Carlos James at the
goal line. Teddy Jo Faley led Iowa’s defenders with 14 tackles, including 13 solo
stops. The Hawkeyes finished the season ranked 10th in both the AP and CNN/
USA Today polls with a 10‑1‑1 record.

GAME RECAP
California exploded for 17 points in the second quarter and defeated Iowa 37‑3 in
the inaugural Alamo Bowl. The Golden Bears built a 9‑0 lead on three field goals by
Doug Brien, then expanded their advantage to 16‑0 on a six‑yard touchdown pass
from Dave Barr to Mike Caldwell. Iowa’s deficit grew when Jerrott Willard picked off
a Paul Burmeister pass and ran it 61 yards for a score just before halftime. Iowa’s only
points in the second half came on a 42‑yard field goal by Brion Hurley in the third
quarter. Iowa finished the season 6‑6. A bright spot was punter Nick Gallery, who
averaged 43 yards on eight punts. Harold Jasper had four pass receptions for 55
yards to lead Iowa’s receivers. Larry Blue received the Alamo Bowl Sportsmanship
Award. The game marked Coach Hayden Fry’s first return to his home state for a
game since he took the Iowa job 15 years earlier.

GAME RECAP
Iowa jumped out to the early lead and didn’t look back, defeating Pac-10 cochampion Washington, 38-18, in the 62nd annual Sun Bowl at El Paso, TX. Sedrick
Shaw started the Iowa scoring by taking a handoff and running 58 yards for a
touchdown only 1:52 into the game. Kickers Brion Hurley and Zach Bromert each
added a pair of field goals. A snap over the punter’s head led to a safety and a 21-0
halftime lead for the Hawkeyes. Hurley kicked his third field goal of the day from 50
yards out as Iowa’s lead climbed to 24 in the third quarter. Washington got on the
board for the first time at the 8:37 mark of the third quarter when Shane Fortney hit
Jerome Pathon on a 30-yard touchdown pass. Iowa fullback Michael Burger scored
on runs of eight- and one-yard to increase the score to 38-6 before Washington
added two late scores. The Iowa defense recorded four sacks while forcing three
fumbles. Hawkeye running backs Shaw (135) and Tavian Banks (122) each rushed
for over 100 yards. The win moved Iowa’s final record to 8-4.

GAME RECAP
In its first trip back to San Antonio since losing to California 37-3 in the inaugural
1993 Alamo Bowl, Iowa’s defense put on a clinic in stopping the run - one runner
in particular. Iowa’s group of run-stoppers, headed by sophomore linebackers Matt
Hughes and Vernon Rollins, held Doak Walker Award winner and 2,000-yard rusher
Byron Hanspard to 64 yards rushing on 18 attempts. In the process the Hawkeyes
shut down Texas Tech for a dominating 27-0 win. Hanspard’s longest run of the
evening was 17 yards, as Iowa controlled the line of scrimmage and limited the
Red Raiders to 60 yards total rushing. The victory was Iowa’s second shutout of the
season (the Hawkeyes also blanked Wisconsin 31-0). And while Hanspard was held
in check throughout, Iowa senior Sedrick Shaw was unstoppable as he rushed for
113 yards on 20 carries and one touchdown. Shaw’s second touchdown run was
impressive, as he broke three tackles enroute to the end zone. Matt Sherman led a
consistent Iowa offense with 126 yards passing - 105 to wide receiver Tim Dwight.
The Hawkeye ground attack churned for 217 yards. Hughes finished with eight
tackles, while Rollins added five. Sophomore Jared DeVries finished with two sacks
and five tackles, three for a loss. Shaw and DeVries were named offensive and
defensive MVP’s, respectively.

GAME RECAP
An incredible defensive effort by Arizona State, it picked apart Iowa’s ninthranked offense and earned the Sun Devils a 17-7 win in the Norwest Sun Bowl. The
Sun Devil offense overshadowed Iowa, as ASU rushed for 268 yards and compiled
377 yards total offense. RB Tavian Banks sparked the offense unit on Iowa’s second
possession, breaking loose for a 26-yard run to the ASU 30. Unfortunately, for Iowa,
ASU held the nation’s fourth-best rusher to only 52 yards in the game. In the second
quarter ASU set a seven-play, 55-yard scoring drive into motion, and never looked
back. The Sun Devils recovered an Iowa fumble late in the first half and added a field
goal for a 10-0 halftime advantage.
Iowa was able to score on a six-play, 87-yard scoring drive, under the direction
of quarterback Randy Reiners, late in the fourth quarter. LBs Raj Clark and Matt
Hughes led the Iowa defense, each recording 12 tackles, while CB Ed Gibson added
11. Jared DeVries contributed nine tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack. Iowa
punter Jason Baker was named Sun Bowl Special Teams MVP after averaging 48. 9
yards per punt, including a Sun Bowl-record 76-yarder.
