HAWKEYES IDLE
Iowa (3-1) is idle this week after winning three of four non-conference games.
The Hawkeyes defeated Tennessee Tech (34-7), Pittsburgh (31-27) and Louisiana-
Monroe (45-17), all in Kinnick Stadium. Iowa was defeated, 44-41 in three over-
times, at Iowa State.
HAWKEYE HISTORY
Iowa has played 1,146 games since beginning football in 1889. Iowa’s overall
record is 590-517-39 (.532). That includes a 373-201-16 (.646) record in home
games, a 217-316-23 (.411) record in games away from Iowa City, a 289-348-25
(.455) mark in Big Ten games and a 256-165-15 (.604) record in Kinnick Stadium.
NARDO IS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Senior DL Tom Nardo was named Big Ten Conference defensive Player of the
Week for his play in Iowa’s 45-17 win over Louisiana-Monroe. The Big Ten honor
is the first for Nardo and Iowa’s second Player of the Week honor in 2011. QB
James Vandenberg was named offensive Player of the Week following Iowa’s win
over Pittsburgh.
Nardo (6-3, 277) is a native of Lancaster, Pa., where he attended Catholic High
School. He joined the Iowa program as a walk-on and during his career has earned
a scholarship.
Nardo started for the second time in Iowa’s win over ULM. He recorded a career-
high 12 tackles in the win over ULM, including six solo tackles, two tackles for loss
and a shared QB sack. Nardo and his defensive teammates held ULM to just 59
net rushing yards and the Warhawks had just one rushing play gain over six yards.
In four games, Nardo has recorded eight solo tackles and 16 assists. He has three
tackles for loss, one pass break-up and one forced fumble.
Nardo is the first Hawkeye to earn the defensive award since last Nov. 1 when
DB Shaun Prater was recognized. Nardo is Iowa’s first defensive lineman to earn
Player of the Week honors since DE Adrian Clayborn was honored Oct. 4, 2010.
VANDENBERG, GUTHRIE GAIN NATIONAL HONOR
Junior quarterback James Vandenberg and senior punter Eric Guthrie have received
recognition for their play in Iowa’s win over Louisiana-Monroe. The duo earned
honorable mention recognition from the College Football Performance Awards for
their respective positions.
Vandenberg completed 21-32 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns in Iowa’s
45-17 win over ULM. He also scored on a one-yard run, his third rushing touch-
down of the season. His scoring strikes covered 13, 17 and 23 yards. Vandenberg
has three touchdown passes in each of Iowa’s last two games and 10 total scoring
passes in four games. His season stats include 81-129 (.628) for 1,095 yards and
10 touchdowns, with just one interception.
Guthrie has taken over Iowa’s punting duties in his senior season and averaged
48 yards on his two punts in the win over ULM. He has at least one punt of 50
yards or more in Iowa’s last three games. For the season, he is averaging 44.9
yards on 15 punts. He has three punts of at least 50 yards and a best of 59 yards.
He has six punts inside the opponent 20 and no touchbacks. Iowa opponents are

advantage. The visitors drove for a field goal
on their opening drive, but ran no more than six
plays on their remaining drives of the first half.

the season. Vandenberg then connected with
WR Marvin McNutt, Jr. for a 13-yard scoring
strike and RB Marcus Coker added a four-yard

FERENTZ JOINS CHALLENGE
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz and Iowa State Coach Paul Rhoads
have joined forces with the Iowa Mentoring Partnership for
the 2011 Coaches’ Challenge. The Coaches’ Challenge runs
from Aug. 1-Nov. 21 and is a competition between Iowa,
Nebraska and Kansas to see which state can recruit the most
mentors.
For three years, Kansas and Nebraska have competed in a
“Coaches Mentoring Challenge”, with Bo Pelini (Nebraksa),
Bill Snyder (Kansas State) and Turner Gill (Kansas) taking
part in the competition. Ferentz and Rhoads have joined the
competition this season.
According to The National Mentoring Partnership, there
are 15 million children in the nation in need of caring and
quality mentors. In Iowa, it is estimated that nearly 5,000
young people are currently in need of a mentor. Many of
these children and youth are young men who would strongly
benefit from a positive male role model. The Iowa Mentoring
Partnership, an initiative of the Iowa Commission on Volun-
teer Service, upholds the commission’s mission to “improve
lives, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement
through service and volunteering” by supporting quality
mentoring services and by working to close the mentoring
gap in our state.
The Iowa Mentoring Partnership currently supports a net-
work of more than 80 local, certified mentoring programs.
Any new mentor application received between Aug. 1-Nov.
21 will count towards the score of the respective state, with
cumulative totals updated each month.
To find out more information or join the Coaches’ Chal-
lenge, visit www.iowamentoring.org or call 1-800-308-5987.

winning all five of its road games during the 2002 regular
season. That streak was six straight games away from
home, including the 2001 Alamo Bowl.
• Iowa’s 2009 win at No. 4/5 ranked Penn State marked

since 1990. That season the Hawkeyes scored a 54-28 win
at fifth-ranked Illinois. Iowa concluded the 2009 season

HAWKEYES THIRD IN BOWL APPEARANCES
Iowa ranks third in Big Ten bowl appearances. Ohio State
has received a conference-best 42 bowl bids, followed by
Michigan (40) and the Hawkeyes (25). Wisconsin ranks
fourth with 22.
Iowa (14-10-1, .580), Penn State (27-14-2, .651) and Purdue
(8-7, .533) are the only Big Ten teams with a winning percent-
age in bowl games.
Iowa was one of eight Big Ten Conference teams to partici-
pate in a bowl game following the 2010 season. The Big Ten
had two teams compete in BCS games for the 10th time in 13
seasons. Since the inception of the BCS in 1998, the Big Ten
has qualified 23 teams for BCS bowls, more than any other
conference. Seven different Big Ten programs have played
in BCS bowl games. The Big Ten sent eight teams to bowl
games for the third time (2003 & 2007). Big Ten Conference
teams posted a 4-3 record in bowl games following the 2009
season and a 3-5 mark in 2010.
IOWA AMONG TOP 20 IN WINS, 2002-10
Iowa has 80 wins since the start of the 2002 season, which
ranks as the 18th highest total in Division I football. The list
includes the following: Boise State (110); Ohio State (102);

(95); Virginia Tech (95); Florida (92); Georgia (90); Auburn
(90); West Virginia (88); Wisconsin (85); Utah (85); Alabama
(83); Texas Tech (82); IOWA (81); Boston College (81); Penn
State (77) and Miami, FL (77).
BEST DECADE FOR IOWA FOOTBALL
Iowa’s football record in the 2000 decade was 80-45 (.640),
a record that ranks as the best decade in Iowa football history,
based on total wins. Iowa posted a record of 77-40-4 (.652)
during the 1980’s and the Hawkeyes were 62-53-2 (.538) in
the 1990’s.
Part of the Hawkeye success is due to the stability in the
program, as Iowa has had just two head coaches since 1979.
Hayden Fry took over prior to the 1979 season and coached
through the 1998 season, posting a record of 143-89-6. Cur-
rent Coach Kirk Ferentz replaced Fry, leading the program for
the last 12 seasons. Ferentz also served as Iowa’s offensive
line coach from 1981-89 under Fry.

Louisiana-Monroe that covered at least 20 yards, plus one
field goal, one punt return and three KO return of at least 20
yards. In four games, Iowa has 20 pass plays and two rushing
plays, along with two interception returns, eight KO returns,
one punt return and eight field goals, of at least 20 yards.
Iowa’s opponents have 10 passing plays, three rushing plays,
one punt return, one interception return and 15 KO returns
of 20 yards or more.
IOWA BY QUARTERS

(44-10) and fourth (32-17) quarters, but has been outscored
in the third quarter (35-34). Iowa was outscored in three
overtime periods (20-17) at Iowa State.
