IOWA CITY, Iowa – One week after staging a record-setting fourth quarter comeback to defeat Pitt, the University of Iowa football team returns to historic Kinnick Stadium for its final nonconference game of 2011, an 11 a.m. Iowa time date with Louisiana-Monroe.
“It was almost like two different games…the first 40 minutes then the last 20. I was just pleased to get the win for obvious reasons. It remains evident that we have a lot of work ahead of us,” Kirk Ferentz said of the victory over the Panthers before turning his attention to the Warhawks.
“Another challenging game for us. They’re a very veteran football team. There schemes both offensively and defensively pose some challenges. They’re a little different, a little unique compare to what we’ve played in recent memory, so we have some work to do there,” Ferentz said.
If you’re at Kinnick today or watching on television, you may notice that Ferentz will be one of thousands of members of the American Football Coaches Association who will be wearing “Coach to Cure MD” shoulder patches on the sidelines today to help raise awareness and money to fund research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most prolific lethan genetic disorder of childhood.

Iowa’s next game is its Big Ten Conference season opener on Saturday, Oct. 8, at Penn State. The Hawkeyes next home game is Oct. 15 against Northwestern when the UI teams with the Iowa Farm Bureau to stage the inaugural ANF Day at Kinnick, a celebration of America’s farmers. That game is scheduled to kick off shortly after 6 p.m. Iowa time and will be televised live by BTN.
